The region of Haryana is mentioned as Brahmavarta in the Manusmruti, and the name Haryana evokes memories of mythology and history. On the banks of the river Saraswati, the rishis (sages) in their yogic trance perceived the hymns of the Vedas. At Kurukshetra, the epic battle of Mahabharata was fought. At Thanesar rule Harshavardhana 1400 years ago. His was the last Hindu empire. After him the country remained divided into regional kingdoms till the Tomara Rajputs established themselves in Delhi.
