 Brief note on the history of the town/city

Assandh is a small town in Karnal District, Haryana. Assandh is 45 km north-west of Karnal. From a visiting tourist’s point of view, a trip to the historic sites around Delhi, Kaithal and Panipat will be an exciting option.

Nearest airport is at New Delhi. Panipat was the part of District Karnal till 31 October 1989, which was upgraded as a separate District, including Assandh Tehsil of district Karnal. When the District was reformed on 1 January 1992 Assandh Tehsil was excluded from this District.

The more than 2000-year-old nation’s biggest Buddhist Stupa is situated at Assandh.The stupa is 25-metre high and at least 75 metres in diameter raised on an earthen platform. It is built with the help of bricks. This stupa is bigger than the much-famous stupa at Sanchi. According to historians, bricks used to construct this stupa, having a width of more than two-feet, indicate that the history of this monument dates back to more than 2000 years.Therefore, the importance of Assandh in the ancient period can not be ruled out with the presence of the nation’s biggest stupa.There is a Gurudwara of sikh dharam temple also a Sanatan Dharm Mandir.
