Rohtak (Hindi: रोहतक) is a city in Haryana.

Information of Girawar village near Rohtak city

The district lies in the south east of Haryana state. It is near to National Capital of India, Delhi and comes under National Capital Region (NCR) II. Rohtak is 70 km from Delhi, comes on National Highway no. 10 and known as the political capital of Haryana. Mainly famous for reputed educational institutes, cloth market and dairies.

A Harappan site with painted grey ware artifacts has been discovered near a village in Rohtak district in Haryana. The site with painted grey ware remains dating back to the Mahabharata period has been discovered at village Girawad on the Madina-Samargopalpur road, in Rohtak district.

This site was found on February 19, this year by a research scholar Vivek Dangi, under a team led by deputy director J S Khatri. The team proceeded from Meham towards Madina and discovered the site at village Girawad.Site was spread over an area of 25 acres and rose about 1.5 metres in height from the ground. Material culture available from the site indicates that the economy of Girawad was based on agriculture. Boundary wall, early Harappan pottery, furnaces and other antiquities found during surface explorations are sufficient evidence to prove its antiquity to that of early Harappan times.

As many as 45 early-Harappan and Harappan sites had so far been discovered on the ancient river bed of Drishadvati and its tributaries in Meham Block itself. It means that this area was thickly inhabited during Harappan times. The discovery of large number of Harappan and painted grey ware sites in the Satluj-Yamuna divide would help the archaeologist in providing evidences to complete the missing links of the Indian history.

A vast stretch of present day Haryana where the now dried Saraswati river flowed presented remnants of Harappan civilisation.


Rohtak has the typical north Indian climate, almost the same as that of Delhi.
