Places to Visit In and Around Manesar

Part of Delhi's National Capital Region (NCR), the town of Manesar is an industrial hub situated in the Gurugram district of Haryana, India. The small township, formerly one of the most economically depressed environs in the nation, is now one of the areas with the swiftest growth rates. Manesar gives the people of Delhi an engaging rural offbeat experience and a good change from the usual city life.

Manesar is the best place for farm tourism enthusiasts seeking an experience of rural life. Being a hilltop city in the lower Aravalli Ranges, the area is well-known for its austere lifestyle and the breathtaking views of the glorious Aravali Hills. The warm weather, lush greenery and rural setting will give you an excellent memory-making experience during your visit here.
