India | Haryana | Karnal


Taraori is a historic village situated around 17 km north of Karnal, in Haryana. It was the birth place of Prince Azam, son of Aurangzeb and was rechristened as Azamabad. Aurangzeb constructed a wall around the town, a mosque and a tank which still exist showing the ancient grandeur.

Taraori is famous for the finest Basmati rice, which is also exported to foreign countries. The village has developed as an important assembling market for paddy and some rice husking mills. Taraori was situated on the main highway of the Mughal times. The old royal Serai, which is believed to have been used by the Sikhs as a fort, is now in a dilapidated condition.
