About Punjab

Seal of Punjab
The satellite view and the map show Punjab. The state in North India was formerly part of the greater Punjab region. In ancient times the area was part of the prehistoric Indus Valley Civilization (Harappa), one of three early cradles of civilizations of the Old World.

With the partition of India in 1947, the Punjab province of British India was divided between India and Pakistan. After the separation, the Indian part of Punjab was divided into three areas: Haryana, Himachal Pradesh and Punjab. Many Punjab hill states were merged into Himachal Pradesh.
