The Ashvamedha Yagya is thought to have been planned by Lord Rama at Rishi Valmiki's ashram in Dharmsthan. There is a Manji Sahib Gurudwara nearby, and Guru Tegh Bahadur, the ninth Sikh Guru, is said to have resided here. The Gurudwara, which resembles a fort, was constructed in honor of the Guru.

  • Hansdehar : This location, which is located in the Narwana Township, is the subject of numerous legends. Rishi Kardam spent a long time here performing penance. The location's name comes from the legend that Lord Brahma attended Kardam Rishi's wedding and rode a goose there (Hans). The Pandavas presented Pinds to their ancestors here. At this location, there is a Bindusar "tirtha" and a Shiva temple. On Somvati Amavas, a significant number of people come here to do an ablution.

  • Jayanti Devi Temple : Around 550 years ago, the Jayanti Devi Temple was constructed out of respect for the wishes of the daughter of the monarch of Kangra, Himachal Pradesh, who was wed to a son of the ruler of Hathnaur, a region to the north of Chandigarh. The princess was a devoted follower of Jayanti Devi, the clan's patron goddess. She was concerned that, in the absence of the temple, she would be denied access to goddess worship after her marriage. She fervently appealed to the deity for assistance as a result. The doli (palanquin) carrying her allegedly became so heavy that its carriers were unable to move any further. A little idol of the goddess was installed within the doli after the goddess noticed the situation and intervened to fix it. The temple, which requires climbing a hundred stairs to reach, is responsible for giving its name to the nearby seasonal stream, Jayanti Rao, as well as the town Jayanti Majri and Jayanti Archeological Museum, both of which are situated at the base of the hill.
