Haryana, better known as the Green Land of India, can be divided into two natural areas: the sub-Himalayan Terai and the Indo-Gangetic plain. The plain is fertile and has slopes from the north to the south with a height above the sea level, averaging between 700 and 900 ft. The South-west of Haryana is dry, sandy and barren. For most of the year, the climate of Haryana is of a pronounced character -very hot in summer and markedly cold in winter.

Chandigarh, the capital of both Haryana and Punjab, is despite the fact that it is quite strictly planned, a nice stop when you’re on your way to Amritsar or Leh. The city is known for the architectural mark the great French architect Le Corbusier left all throughout Chandigarh.

Haryana has a proud history going back to the Vedic age. The state was the home of the legendary Bharata dynasty,.Haryana is immortalised in the great epic Mahabharata. Kurukshetra, the scene of the epic battle between the Kaurvas and the Pandavas, is situated in Haryana. The state continued to play a leading role in the history of India till the advent of Muslims and the rise of Delhi as the imperial capital of India. Thereafter, Haryana functioned as an adjunct to Delhi and practically remained anonymous till the first war of India's Independence in 1857, when the people of Haryana joined the leaders of Indian revolt against the British Government.

The state is bounded by Uttar Pradesh in the east, Punjab in the west, Himachal Pradesh in the north and Rajasthan in the south. The Union Territory of Delhi is landlocked on three sides by Haryana.
