Yadavindra Gardens at Pinjore are the oldest legacy inherited by Haryana
Tourism in 1966. These are perhaps the only Mughal gardens that play up a
symmetric design where one descends to the seventh step of pleasure with
soothing waterways and fountains breaking the monotony of steps. The
niches and green patches play up the pattern of Mughal tradition. The
Gardens were built by Nawab Fidai Khan, the Governor of
Punjab in the
17th Century AD.
Pinjore also bears an ancient history. Studies have revealed that early man lived at Pinjore. Evidence in the form of antiquarian remains of sculptures of Shiva, Shakti, Ganesh etc indicate that the area flourished from the 9th to the 12th Century AD. Ruins of Bhima Devi Temple and the Dharamandal also bear evidence of this.
