The area comprising Ayub National Park was previously known as ‘Topi Rakh’. In Urdu language, the words ‘Toop’ represent the English word ‘Gun’ and ‘Rakh’ means ‘Reserve Forest’. The Urdu language word ‘Topi’ is derived from the Urdu word ‘Toop’. ‘Topi’ was a small village in a ‘Rakh’ in the present location of Gulistan Colony. In 2007, when a multi-purpose auditorium was constructed in Ayub National Park, it was appropriately named ‘Topi Rakh Auditorium’ thus preserving the heritage of the area.
Topi Rakh Auditorium referred to as ‘TRA’, is an integral concern of Army Heritage Foundation located within the premises of Ayub National Park, Rawalpindi, and is situated adjacent to Jhelum Road.
