about patiala


Popular for its Patiala Salwars, Phulkari stitch and Parandis, Patiala is a city packed with culture and history. Having been ruled by the Mughals, the Afghans and the Marathas, Patiala flourished in the hands of Maharaja Bhupinder Singh who gave it its place on the political map of India. The Moti Bagh Palace here is an important architectural landmark as it has a large number of frescos and its own museum has a large collection of international medals. The Lakshman Jhoola over the lake facing this palace is also a crowd puller.
Sheesh Mahal or 'Palace of Mirrors', a part of the old Moti Bagh Palace, is a complex full of frescoes, most of which were made under Maharaja Narinder Singh. Sheesh Mahal also has a museum inside it which has paintings and artifacts from Tibet, Kashmir and Punjab.The grand paintings of the Maharajas are also worth appreciation. There is also a myriad collection of some 3200 medals from different countries which is an interesting display.

The Sheesh Mahal leaves you awestruck with its beauty in the evenings or at night when its well lit and all sparkling. A lake situated in front of the palace adds to the beauty and the charm of the place. Also, Laxman Jhula on the lake which is like a bridge that takes you inside the Moti Bagh Palace is another attraction among the tourists.
Another must see is the Quila Androon which is a magnificent amalgamation of Mughal and Rajasthani architecture. The food here is simply divine, and indulgence in Chaats and Chole Bhatoore is a must! A salute to the spirit of Punjab, Patiala is an example of Living Life King Size! The " Patiala Peg" also derives its name from this place.

Perfect for the customer of ethnic crafted works, Patiala has likewise been a witness to numerous real turns of history. Found around Qila Mubarak, a stronghold built in 1763 by militiamen, Patiala is a toast to the life, society and color of Punjab. ...... read more
