You can also include other places of interest such as Dukh Niwaran Sahib, Rara Sahib, Krishna Mandir, Dandi Swami Mandir and Sheetla Mata Mandir on your trip to Ludhiana. As the city is taking gradual steps towards urbanization, there are several malls and multiplexes which are coming up in every nook and corner of Ludhiana. You can go for shopping or just roaming around the swanky malls if you want to experience the cosmopolitan side of Ludhiana.
