About karnal

Karnal is a wonderful little city in the state of Haryana, India. Teeming with natural beauty and a rich and interesting history. The city is famous for its lush gardens, complemented by a prominent manufacturing industry. Its proximity to the cities of Delhi and Chandigarh is an added advantage, which gives the city a touch of cosmopolitanism. Liberty Shoes, a famous shoe manufacturing company, is headquartered in Karnal. \r\n\r\nThe city is home to several top research institutions including Indian Agricultural Research Institute (IARI), National Bureau of Animal Genetic Resources (NBAGR), Central Soil Salinity Research Institute (CSSRI), National Dairy Research Institute (NDRI) Directorate of Wheat Research (DWR). Karnal has its fair share of interesting places to visit. The scenic Karnal Lake, named after the legendary Mahabharata character Karna, is just 15 min away from the city. Historical places such as the magnificent Karnal Fort (named after Karna from the Mahabharata), Cantonment Church Tower, Mughal Sarai, etc. represent the conquests of mighty dynasties in the past. Those who are on a spiritual quest can visit Gurudwara Manji Sahib and Sita Mai Temple.
