North India is a land known for its age old culture and civilization over the past several centuries. In the Ancient Times, North India consisted of the existing North Indian States & the regions of today’s Pakistan and Afghanistan. The Indus Valley Civilization was set up over a stretch of these regions, which was later replaced by the people of the Aryan Community which had entered from the North Western Province of India. Today, post India’s Partition and then Independence in 1947, North India consists of about Eight Indian States which are Jammu & Kashmir, Punjab, Himachal Pradesh, Haryana, Uttrakhand, Delhi, Uttar Pradesh and Rajasthan. All these states of North India can be seen in India’s Political Map and are also well connected by Rail, Road and Air.
