HARYANA

Haryana was founded in 1966 when the former state of Punjab was divided into Haryana and the modern Punjab. Most tourists who come to India pass through Haryana, the state that surrounds Delhi on three sides, the capital of the country, and whose highways lead to Agra, Rajasthan, and Himachal Pradesh. As they drive through, tourists are treated to the view of neat and abundant green fields, and a growing number of modern residential complexes and industrial townships.

This small state has a great history that dates back to the Vedic age. The state was home to the legendary Bharata dynasty, which gave the name 'Bharat ' to India. Kurukshetra, the scene of the great epic battle between the Kauravas and the Pandavas, is situated in this state. Haryana is proud of a rich cultural heritage. It is rich in folklore, the people have their own traditions and age-old customs are still observed by the masses. The seasonal and religious festivals glorify the culture of this region.

Chandigarh is the only Indian city to have been designed and planned by a Swiss architect; le Corbusier.(the crow). Chandigarh was conceived as the capital of Punjab, in lieu of the lost capital at Lahore which was conceded to Pakistan during partition. But Punjab was divided a second time in 1966, and Chandigarh has since remained the common capital for both the states of Punjab and Haryana. The name of the city stems from the name of Shri Chandika (the female Shakti or Goddess) whose temple adorns the northern border of Chandigarh. The snow-white dome of Mata Chandi devi's Temple on the north-east of the city is visible from across the lake. It is considered to be an ancient site of major religious significance and is one of the 12 Peeth Sthans for the Hindus.
