Panipat, in Haryana, is famous for its history. Historically, Panipat is one of the cities which was founded by the Pandavas. It was named Panduprastha when the Pandavas founded it. Panipat is popular in the history of India as it has witnessed and had been a part of the three pivotal battles which were fought in the history of our country. The glorious Panipat, which was an important part of the history of our country, is losing its charm and glory.
Panipat, because of its historical importance has countless monuments and museums. Grave of Ibrahim Lodhi, Kabuli Bagh, Salar Gunj Gate, Tomb of Bu-Ali Shah Kalandar and Kala Amb are a few of its famous monuments. Though, it is a historically rich city, it is not getting enough attention in the country. It is necessary that the government of India should work along with the state towards the maintenance and preservation of these places. Special attention is required to be paid to these monuments. It is important to maintain the law and order situation of these places. People try to harm these monuments and the government is required to take strict action against the perpetrators.
Tourism is also not flourishing in this city, considering the rich history it has to offer to tourists. There are museums, temples and monuments which represent the history and importance of Panipat. These places of interest can cater to a large number of tourists, if tourism is flourished and propagated here. It is required that the government of Haryana should also focus on improving the tourism in the city.
Panipat is known for its textile industry which manufactures handlooms and carpets. It is also popular for the recycled yam which is known as the 'Shoddy Yam'. There are a large number of manufacturers who produce these products. Even though the city is rich in textile production, it is not popular at the national level. People or the business owners from the neighbouring cities are only aware of this industry in Panipat. It is important to promote this art of textile of the state at the national level and make more people aware of it. The younger generation is not much interested in the textile industry, it is necessary that they should be made aware of this industry and the importance of the city.
Besides so many glorious attractions, no light has been shed on the Panipat city which has always been kept under wraps. It is the responsibility of the government and the residents of the city to make the importance of the city visible in the country. The glory of Panipat, which is getting diminished, should be maintained and preserved. Naya Panipat will also prosper along with Naya Haryana and will grow to new heights.
