So, already explored the beautiful Ludhiana and looking for some more options when you are in this fantastic city? Well, here are some names which are worth exploring and trust us when we say that you will carry back some wonderful memories with you. Come and take a look:

  • 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 Jhula over the lake facing this palace is also a crowd puller. Another must see is the Qila Androon which is a magnificent amalgamation of Mughal and Rajasthani architecture. The food here is simply divine, and indulgence in chaats and chole bhature is a must! A salute to the spirit of Punjab, Patiala is also where the "Patiala Peg" derives its name from, and an example of Living Life King Size!

Situated between the irrigated plains of Beas and Sutlej rivers, the city boasts vast fields of plush vegetation. The city is inhabited by people from diverse religious beliefs and flaunts of age old spiritual places like Devi Talab Mandir, St Mary’s Cathedral and Gurdwara Chevin Padshahi.

    Amritsar beckons with its myriad charms. Be it, the pompous ceremony by troops at the Wagah border and the dazzling opulence of the Golden Temple, or the soul stirring experience at the Jallianwala Bagh, Amritsar offers all this and much more. The city is the nucleus of the Sikh religion and the lavish and legendary Golden Temple is Amritsar's main claim to fame. This dazzling Gurudwara sits in the midst of the holy Harmandir Sahib pool and Amritsar is named after this pool. The number of devotees of different faiths visiting this place is said to outnumber the number of people visiting Taj Mahal. Besides the Golden Temple, visitors also flock to the infamous Jallianwala Bagh, which represents one of the blackest episodes of British colonial rule. The satiating food and generous dollops of legendary Punjabi hospitality further connive to cast a spell upon the visitor.
