It showcases some 129 important monuments, spread across the modern Haryana. It emphasized the importance of particular tombs, mosques, sarias, havelis, forts, gates, baradaris, baolis, tanks, wells, kosminras, bridges, gardens etc. It mentions the location, structural plan, various elements of the structure and events associated with it. Most of these monuments are very important for out national importance and few of them are very dilapidated condition.
