Chandigarh

Haryana's capital city is the only Indian city to have been designed and planned by a single architect - Le Corbusier. The city, surrounded by the Shiwalik Hills that hem the great Himalayas, is a model of wide roads and spacious residential colonies. Visit Sukhna Lake, Pinjore Gardens, the Rose Garden and the Rock Garden, where the city's discarded junk has been recycled into bizarre human and animal sculptures. Chandigarh is a good base to travel northwards to the hill resorts of Shimla Kulu, Manali, Dharmashala and Dalhousie

Kurukshetra

Kurukshetra is one of the most sacred places for Hindus, for it was here that the Mahabharata, the epic battle between the Kauravas and the Pandavas, was fought. It was during this battle that Lord Krishna preached his divine message, The Bhagavad Gita (the kernel of Hindu belief and doctrine) to a doubt-ridden Arjuna. The mythical holy river, Saraswati, is believed to have flowed by Kurukshetra, and many vedic hymns were supposed to have been composed along its banks.

Sultanpur

Sultanpur was declared a waterbird reserve in 1972. The grounds are lush with greenery and masses of bougainvillea, but one of the best things about it is that there aren't many trees to obscure the visitor's view of the lake.

Surajkund

The internationally famous Crafts Mela is held here every year in the month of February, to promote Indian arts and handicrafts.

Dumdama Lake

Surrounded by the enchanting Aravali Ranges, this is a popular spot for rock climbing, paragliding and ballooning.

As the cradle of the ancient Vedic Civilization, the 5000-year-old history of Haryana is full of glory. It was here in Haryana, that Lord Krishna taught us about Karma and Dharma through "The Bhagwad Gita". It was here that Ved Vyas wrote Mahabharat (in Sanskrit) on the banks of Saraswati River. Recent archeological excavations in sites like Kunal and Banawali, are adding much more to our knowledge of Haryana's history. Arya Samaj has a large number of followers among Haryana's people. Haryana has a rich variety of craft, folk dances and fairs & festivals. Haryana became a new state of India on 1st November 1966, with Chandigarh city as its capital.

Haryana lies in the northern part of India and is bordered by the Indian states of Delhi, Rajasthan, Uttaranchal, Himachal Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh and Punjab. It has a population of 2,10,83,000 & an area of 44,212 sq km. Hindi and English are the official languages, but Haryanavi is most widely spoken. Punjabi and Urdu are also used in many areas. Ten Lok Sabha & five Rajya Sabha members represent Haryana in the Indian Parliament. Haryana is known for its rustic humour, brave soldiers, dairy products, Murrah buffalos and Basmati rice. The state bird of Haryana is Kala Teetar.

Haryana has set up many tourist complexes, motels and camping sites in landscaped gardens to promote tourism. Haryana has one of the most successful tourist development programs led by Haryana Tourism department. The tourist complexes are named after Birds found in Haryana.
