Sheikh Chillis Tomb, Haryana, India

About 2km northwest of the Panorama (turn right as you exit, then left to cross the railway line, then left again and follow the road round to the right) is the impressive mausoleum of the Sufi mystic Sheikh Chaheli, who provided spiritual guidance for the Mughal prince Dara Shikoh.

Behind the brick and sandstone tomb, and predating it by more than a thousand years, is a raised mound known as Harsh Ka Tilla, where you can view excavated, 7th-century ruins from historical Thanesar. The ruins stretch for about 1km.
