Sheikhpura Village is a few kilometers away from Hansi and the first village you would come across on the Hansi-Jind road. But you'll be amazed to realise how misplaced the place is. The village lacks proper sanitation and villagers live a very simple life of looking after the cattle and farms. Though it is close to Hansi, there are no government offices or institutes, except for a school. The Sheikhpura Kothi, a 7-room hotel, built in the style of French chateau near the village was listed as one of the best hotels in Hansi. But the village is nothing as glorious as the hotel.

Sheikhpura village seems to be synonymous with taboos and pre-historic era. With no government offices or institutes, surely it's an uphill task for the village to make a name for itself.
