Gurdaspur is a city in the State of Punjab. This city is known for its old fort which has since been turned into a Brahmin monastery. This fort is famous due to the extensive siege laid down by the Mughals in the 18th century. The founder of the city is Sahib Deep Chand and it is named after his grandfather. The area surrounding the city has many rivers and lakes. Some of these lakes and swamps are famous for Snipe Shooting. The Sanatorium of Dalhousie is located nearby. The city receives a large amount of rainfall and is surrounded by scenic beauty.

Akbar who was the third Mughal emperor is said to have been enthroned in a garden near Gurdaspur. The two main rivers that pass by are the Ravi and Beas. The banks are scenic and a good place for day trips. Many of the surrounding mountains and hills have small hill stations that are a short distance away and can be reached easily.

Gurdaspur is well connected with the rest of the State and also has relatively good rail connectivity with the rest of the country. Some of the places to see are White Minaret Mosque, Achal Sahib, Mubarak Mosque and many other temples and mosques.
