Raja Bhimsina founded this ancient city in 2306 BC. The great Mughal Emperor Akbar visited this place in the year 1508. The place derives its name from two Sanskrit words, ‘Varrah’ which means ‘boar’ and ‘Mul’ which means ‘molar’. The peculiarity of the place’s name has a tale behind. It is believed that Kashmir was once a large lake named Satisara. It was controlled by a demon name Jalodbhava. Lord Vishnu disguised himself as a boar, appeared to rid the lake off the demon. He dug a whole into the mountain with his molar and the water flowed out. 

Many gurudwaras, temples, monasteries and shrines are found in Baramulla. Gulmarg, which is present at a height of 2730 meters, is nearby and is worth visiting.
