Yamuna Nagar Info

  • State: Haryana
  • Famous for/as: Waterfront
  • District: Yamunanagar
Spread over an area of 1756 sq. km, Yamuna-Nagar is a fast emerging industrial district in the state of Haryana. Towards the north, this district is bounded by Himachal Pradesh and towards the south by Karnal District. Uttar Pradesh bounds the district of Yamuna-Nagar from the eastern side. The districts of Kurukshetra and Ambala surround the district of Yamuna-Nagar from the south-west and west, respectively.  

The district of  Yamuna-Nagar comprises of three tehsils and six development blocks. Jagadhri, Chhachhrauli and Bilaspur are the three tehsils of this district, while Bilaspur, Sadhaura, Mustafabad, Radaur, Jagadhri and Chhachhrauli are the development blocks. The headquarters of this district are based at Yamunanagar town, which is known for the cluster of plywood units.

Before the district was constituted on 1st November, 1989, it was popularly known as Abdullapur. Earlier, when India was under the British rule, this region of Yamuna-Nagar was nothing but a small village with the population concentrated around its railway station. Post India's Independence in 1947, many refugees from Punjab in Pakistan settled in the region. The culture of the region has been greatly influenced by Pakistan refugees who inhabit the region.

Characteristic of saangs, dramas, ballads and songs, the culture of Haryana is predominant in Yamuna-Nagar. Located at the Shivalik foothills, this region is known for cultivation of sugarcane, wheat and rice. The major attraction of the district is Kalesar Wild Life Sanctuary, which is situated in the eastern part of Yamuna-Nagar. Another major attraction of the district is Adi Badri, which is a pilgrimage centre.
    
Chandigarh Airport, which is located around 80 km away from the district centre, is the nearest airport. International passengers can use the Indira Gandhi International Airport at Delhi, to reach the destination. Yamuna-Nagar Railway Station is the main railhead serving the district. Yamuna-Nagar bus stand is the main bus stand serving the district. Buses from Delhi, Ambala, Saharanpur and Kurukshetra serve this bus stand.

The best time to visit Yamuna-Nagar is from October to March, when the weather is suitable for sightseeing.

"Amazing place to be at if you are looking for a change from metro-city"

  • 5.5/7
  • Posted Oct 21, 2015
Fist of all, this place is not much developed as compared to Delhi or any other metro-city and this is the special thing about visiting there. The weather is awesome mostly rainy in month of June - July (as per the monsoon prediction). If a traveller (you) is looking to visit a place near to Delhi(NCR) or Near by by bike ride or bus ride(my favourite in rainy season) this is the place to be.

Places to see are :
1. Santpura Gurudwara,
2. Yamuna River Side,
3. Baker's Lounge in model town.
4. Nehru Park.

The market is big specially in model town as there are a lot of local retailer with a lot variety in products. Vishal mega mart is there for mega mart goers. Pizza hut and domino's are present but the local sweet shops and snacks shops are awesome in taste. Baker's lounge must be in your list to taste their awesome bakery products.

This place is good for seeing nature's Greenery. I rented a bicycle and and went for the bike riding on the roads and city seeing. I also visited Yamuna side and enjoyed the view, went to Gurudwara for Langar (hot meal) to have complete different experience of visiting there. People of Yamuna nagar are kind and you will see Punjabi and Haryanvi Comunity there in majority.

My advice to visitor will be to go by road using Motorcycle, Car, Bus. You should check the weather forecast first and visit there in rainy weather. Normal things are available in regular prices so it will not be much costly to visit there. Carry rain-coat, umbrella and other essential things. Had an awesome experience.

"A developing city"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Jul 19, 2014
It's a fairly small city in Haryana, situated very near to Bank of River Yamuna. The city has seen rapid development in just few years. The cleanliness is not satisfactory and roads are under construction. The rapid development is in terms of educational services and industries. A few classic hotels and malls are also opened. It's an industrial city. River Yamuna can be seen flowing through the city. The papers and allied products are very low-priced due to big paper mills here. The environment is polluted due to it. A place to visit during winter.
