Kosli is a village and sub-district (or "tahsil") in the Rewari district of Haryana in India. It is situated 80 kilometers from Delhi.
According to Haryana State Gazetteer. Kosli was founded in 1193 A.D. by Kosal Dev Singh, the grandson of king of Delhi, as a Yaduvanshi Ahirs village. Kosal Dev said to have met the sage Baba Mukteshwar Puri Maharaj engaged in meditation at Kosli, which was then under dense shrub jungle.
Kosli is today well known for the high proportion of soldiers and officers it contributes to the Indian Army and other Armed Forces of India, and for the number of teachers it contributes to the Haryana education system. Today it has a small population made up mostly of Yadavs are the majority, in particular the gotra Kausaliya. Descendants of the Dagar clan established small kingdoms near Jodhpur and Gwalior in the seventeenth century.[1] During British Raj there were as many as about seventy senior commissioned officers and about one hundred and fifty Junior Commissioned Officers in Kosli. There are about a hundred military pensioners living there today, including several recipients of different military honours during British rule/[2]
