small state of Haryana, spread over an area of over 44,000 square kilometers,
was founded in 1966 when the former state of Punjab was divided into Haryana
and the modern Punjab. It is both the oldest and most modern of places. Most
of 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. For those who want to relax for some time during the journey, there
are numerous roadside resorts with which the state government has dotted all
the major highways. However, there is much more to discover and enjoy in the
state of Haryana.
LOCATION OF HARYANA
Located in the Northern part of India, Haryana is bound by Uttar Pradesh in
the east, Punjab in the west, Himachal Pradesh in the north and Rajasthan in
the South. The national capital territory of Delhi is next to Haryana. Haryana
is situated between the latitude 30.30° North and longitude 74.60° East.
Most of Haryana is in the plains with the Aravali mountain range starting its
westward journey from here. The Yamuna is the only major river that passes through
this small state, which is one of the greenest in the country. There is a very
good network of canals throughout the state, giving it the much-needed impetus
for agriculture, the mainstay of Haryana's economy.
