The hill station town of Nainital was founded in 1841. According to historic reference, Nainital existed during pre-historic period. At the time, it was ruled by the Khasi dynasty and thus was introduced as ‘Khasidesh.’ There are many stories behind the name of Nainital. One of the stories is when King Daksha (Father of Goddess Parvati) didn’t invite Lord Shiva in an occasion, Goddess Parvati had become very angry and jumped into the Fire and became Sati. When Lord Shiva was moving the dead body of her sati to Kailash Parbat, her left eye fell into the lake and thus the name of this city has become Nainital where “Nain” means “Eye”.
