Kosli is a city 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 the last Hindu 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 school 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]

Kosli Railway Station is on the Rewari- Bhiwani railway line. A flyover is constructed and operational on the railway line which is said to be second largest flyover of Haryana.[3]

Kosli town has a "mauth", or Hindu monastery headed by a Mahant. Every year on the festive day of Holi a fair is organised in this mauth in honour of Baba Mukteshwar Puriji Maharaj. People from nearby villages come to this place for taking blessings of the local Babaji (aint) on this holy occasion, and revelers gather to celebrate and sing songs.
