From Punjab, we head down south, to the state of Haryana: the cradle of Vedic and Hindu civilization. Historically, Haryana has seen a lot, from the glorious battles that took place in Panipat, to the composing of the Mahabharata and other ancient Vedic and Hindu scriptures and epics.

The union territory of Chandigarh, is the capital of Haryana, which is also the capital of Punjab.
