Travel Information

Ludhiana, India Forecast

A Turbulent History - A Distinctive Culture
Settled as long as 3000BC by the Harappan Civilization, and swept by invading armies of Aryans, Mauryans, Moghuls, Afghans and the British Raj, the Punjab has over the centuries absorbed, rejected and refined a multitude of external cultural influences.

The result of these invasions can be seen in the fascinating mix of architecture, culture and folklore of present day Punjab, notably in the formly princely states of Patiala, Kapurthala and Faridkot. Much reduced size after partition (1947), the Punjab is the proud and thriving home of Sikhism, the casteless egalitarian religion that evolved in 16th Century, whose holiest hrine is the magnificient Golden Temple at Amritsar.

The results of this turbulent history has made people of Punjab, distinctive in appearance and customs, known throughout India for their hospitality, generous nature and love of life and above all good food!!! Nowhere in India will you be made to feel more welcome as a visitor.
