Tourist Attractions in Nuh

Nuh is home to several historical sites and tourist attractions and is frequently visited by heritage lovers. The primary attraction of this place is Shaking Minarets found at the place. These minarets are one of the rare monuments created in India because of their shaking and vibrating quality. For instance, if someone shakes those pillars situated on a minar, the other one standing within the adjoining minar will feel some vibrations automatically. The current state of these Minars is certainly not in good condition because of the deficiency of their preservation by the tourism departments. Thus, it needs to be maintained else India will lose this brilliantly made monument in the coming few years. However, the next must-see site of this place is Chui Mal’s Water Pond or Tank which is a historical water reservoir or a Masonry tank created along with a Cenotaph or a Chhatri and is carved with stunning floral drawings and figures. It is situated at the west of Nuh and is believed to be associated with Chuhi Mal.
