This tomb belongs to Sheikh Chilli who was a scholar and a teacher to Dara Shikoh, eldest son of the fifth Mughal emperor Shah Jahan. There are two tombs, a madarsa, a beautiful garden and a small archaeological museum. Sheikh Chilli dedicated a second tomb to his wife. Sheikh Chilli’s tomb has an octagonal figure, constructed from buff sandstone and has a pearl shaped marble dome that sits on its top like a crown. His wife’s tomb is made from red sandstone, has a marble dome and carved floral designs. It is also believed to be similar to Taj Mahal in certain aspects.
The museum houses some seals, terracotta sculptures, ornaments, swords, etc. from various kingdoms that existed between first and seventh centuries. Most of the structures in this complex have a substantial touch of Persian architecture. Sheikh Chilli’s tomb is not too crowded, which is the most comforting fact. Visitors can see everything with peace, sit comfortably, have discussions and click pictures. The area near the main tomb offers a very good view and hence, some people even prefer to sit here for a little longer to relax.

There was a tank full of crocodiles in village Bhaur Saidan, situated on Pehowa-Kurukshetra road, 22 kms from Kurukshetra. The area of this tank was acquired and its management was taken over by the Forest Department during 1982-83. They increased the habitat of this farm and fenced the periphery. We obtained four pairs of crocodile from Crocodile Bank, Madras, and released them there. The present population is 25. They erected a high mound inside the tank for watching the reptiles from a close range.

Excavations by the Archaeological Survey of India in 1921 have revealed several prehistoric objects in this ancient mound. The artefacts belong to three cultural periods, from the 4th Century BC to the 3rd Century AD. 

First, 4th to 1st century BC: The significant antiquities recovered from this period include terracotta seals with depictions of spiritual symbols like crescent, swastika, snake, and ‘nandipada’. 

Second, 1st century BC to 3rd century AD: Accommodations built of baked bricks and mud, stamped pottery, artifacts made of terracotta, clay seals bearing Brahmi scripts and ‘Red Polished Ware’ represent this period.

People say that this fort belonged to Abhimanyu, the son of Arjuna in the Mahabharata times. Folklore also says that the Pandavas arrayed their forces before the last battle in the War of Mahabharat at Amin. There is mound here which marks the site of ‘Chakravyuha’ in which Abhimanyu lost his life.

The men of Amin from the Ror community belong to Chauhan gotra and in majority cases their average height is more than six feet.
