Monuments and Sites in Haryana
Monuments and Sites in Haryana
Description
Message

In the following pages are presented a brief account of the sites and monuments of Haryana. Since time immemorial, Haryana experienced inroads and invasions from the north-west. Of the important archaeological sites, special mention may be made of the excavated remains noticed at Kunal, Rakhigarhi, Bhagwanpura, Agroha, Naurangabad and Harsh-ka-Tila which yielded a chronological sequence ranging from the Early-Harappan and the Harappan times to the medieval periods.

Among other buildings which attract attention of the visitors here are the Asokan pillar, Firoz Shah’s Palace, Lat-ki-Masjid, Gujri Mahal at Hissar; Buddhist Stupa at Asandh; Suraj Kund and Anangpur Dam at Faridabad; Prithvi Raj Chauhan’s Fort; Barsi Gate at Flansi; Kabuli Bagh Mosque at Panipat; Shah Jahan-ki-Baoli at Meham; Khwaja Khizr’s Tomb at Sonepat; the tomb of Sheikh Chilli at Kurukshetra; Shah Ibrahim and Shah Quli Khan besides Jal Mahal etc., at Narnaul and a number of Kos Minars. These are particularly noteworthy for their unique but simple and elegant architectural features.

I hope this guide book will appeal to both - the scholars and the tourists and they will also cherish it as a souvenir.

Fotis, Greece
I received the statue today, and it is beautiful! Worth the wait! Thank you so much, blessings, Kimberly.
Kimberly, USA
I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.
John, USA
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
Steven, USA
