This beautiful developing city is believed to have been founded by the Kauravas in the great Indian epic The Mahabharata. The legend goes that the territory was a royal gift by Duryodhana to his earnest friend Karna. The historical and cultural eminence of the place rubs shoulders with an equally prolific development in terms of education, research and industrialisation that is taking place in the city in the past few years.
Situated on NH1, between Delhi and Chandigarh, Karnal is a business town bustling with many existing and upcoming industries. It is only two and a half hours away from Delhi, provided your are either travelling by cab or your private vehicle. Besides being famous for its flying club, this place is also known for its Agricultural and Dairy Institutes--IARI and NDRI to name a few. Those who haven't been here before can visit Christian Cemetry, Bhawali Mandir and Baber;s Mosque in their free time. There are other important tourist attractions such as Karna Tal, Pukka Pul, Kalandar Shah’s tomb etc. Karna Tal being a huge water tank named after the benevolent king Karna. Legends has it that the king used to distribute alms to the poor and needy at the same place.

Karnal, erstwhile Karnalaya was home to the mythological hero Karna of the Mahabharata. Karnal has rich cultural and historical background and is now a developing city that is famed for providing world class research institutes like Central Soil Salinity Research Institute (CSSRI), Directorate of Wheat Research (DWR) etc. In the recent years, the city has grown by leaps and bounds when it comes to infrastructure as well as leisure.
