Historical background

National Highway 1 is one of the oldest and most prominent national highways of India, which links New Delhi to Pakistan border. It starts from New Delhi and ends in the town of Atari in Punjab. In medieval times it was the part of famous Grand Trunk Road built by Sher Shah Suri.

The extension of this highway down south is called NH2. After Atari, it passes through Amritsar Jalandhar, Phagwara, Ludhiana, Rajpura, Ambala, Kurukshetra, Karnal, Panipat, Sonipat, Kundli, finally reaching Delhi.

State wise description of NH1

NH1 starts from Wagah border at Atari village and you have to cruise thirty kilometers inside Punjab to reach Amritsar from Atari. If you continue cruising along NH1 you'll find districts of Kapurthala, Jalandhar, Ludhiana ,Sangrur and Patiala dotting the highway ; however the NH 1 does not pass through these cities. The only town it passes through is Rajpura, when we enter the state of Haryana.

The first district we encounter along NH1 is Ambala. Then, we travel through the districts of Kurukshetra, Karnal, Panipat and Sonipat. Kurukshetra city is very near to NH1. In Ambala district, when we take NH 1, it leads us to Ambala Cantonment Junction, which is proximate to the Ambala City.
