Punjab, once, extended from Attock in the north-western part of India to Yamuna River in Delhi. The state of Punjab derives its name from five rivers that once flowed in Punjab. The five rivers of Punjab were Jhelum, Chenab, Ravi, Beas and Sutlej. Punjab is the homeland of the Sikhs, one of India’s most distinctive regional and religious groups. Haryana and Punjab are one of the India’s most important agricultural regions. It is here that you can see the Indian tradition being played out in many aspects of daily life, festivals, building styles and house decoration, the regional handicrafts and the cuisine. The region has few truly great monuments. There are not many tourist attractions in Haryana, but, the Haryana Tourism has worked hard to appreciate travellers requirements and has developed an extensive chain of tourist complexes with lakes, restaurants, motels and shopping centres. In the last decade it has been difficult to travel around Punjab. Due to the continuous violence in the state, the permits are required to visit the state. Chandigarh is the capital of Punjab. Hindi, Punjabi and English are the main languages which are spoken here.
