Hissar is an important city in the colourful state of Haryana in the western parts of India. This city was founded and named by Firoz Shah Tughlaq, who brought up this city from the ruins of Iskaru, formerly a very prosperous city. The word ‘Hissar’ means a ‘Fortress’. The climate here is extreme, i.e. very hot in summers and very cold in winters. The maximum temperatures can go up to 48 degrees. Its population is around 256,810 as described in a recent census. Dust storms are common here and rainfall is normal. Hissar became clearly visible on the country’s map when an agricultural industry was set up here. The industrial and agricultural policies of the administration have attracted farmers and businessmen from far and wide. As Haryana is mostly an agricultural dependent state, this city leaves no stone unturned to excel in this field. People from all over Punjab as well from Rajasthan flock here in large numbers for the purchase of quality seeds, cattle and sheep. The quality education that is imparted here also attracts many people.
