Haryāna Google maps and facts
Haryana’s name means either ‘Abode of God’ or ‘green home’ depending on whether you believe its fi rst syllable refers to Hari, one of Lord Vishnu’s aliases, or hara, Hindi for green.
Haryana and Punjab comprise the Indian half of the erstwhile Punjab region that was tumultuously split when India and Pakistan separated in 1947. Punjab (translating to ‘Five Waters’) is named after the fi ve rivers of this fertile ‘rice bowl’ and ‘bread basket’: the Beas, Jhelum, Chenab, Ravi and Sutlej.
Hindi-speaking, primarily Hindu Haryana split from Punjabi-speaking, primarily Sikh Punjab in 1966, but they still share a capital, Chandigarh.
Apart from its prodigious manufacturing and agriculture industries, and the precocious Delhi satellite of Gurgaon, Haryana is best known for the Hindu holy site of Kurukshetra. Punjab is the home of the Sikhs, butter chicken and bhangra (music/dance).
Here, Sat Sri Akal replaces Namaste as the preferred greeting, and Sikh gurdwaras outnumber Hindu temples as places of worship. Tourists and worshippers flock to Amritsar’s gleaming Golden Temple, while nationalists and the curious join in the fun at Attari–Wagah’s entertaining border-closing ceremony on the India–Pakistan border.
