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.
