The northern state of Punjab is the bread basket of India, accounting for almost the entire production of wheat in the country. Bordering the volatile country of Pakistan to the west and other Indian states to the east, south and north, Punjab is one of the most fertile states in India in terms of soil fertility. The people of Punjab will welcome you with open hands.

With huge areas of the state under cultivation, it provides for some scintillating visuals. The five rivers of the state give the tourists lot to cherish in terms of serene waters and stunning waterfalls. The lush green fields of wheat and maize that traverses the state give the tourist something to cherish and take back. Taking the train is something that a new comer shouldn't miss when it comes to Punjab.

The main areas of tourist frequency are: Amritsar, Chandigarh, Wagah, Ludhiana and Jallianwala Bagh.

Amritsar


The city of Amritsar experiences extreme weather conditions with highs of 40 C and lows of upto -3 C. The Golden Temple, the holiest temple in the religion of Sikhism, is one of the major attractions in the state and the country of India. Seated and looking all content in the middle of a pond, the temple has golden plates covering its entire surface, giving it the name.

Chandigarh


Chandigarh is the joint capital of Punjab and neighboring Haryana. The city of Chandigarh is considered to be a union territory by the Government of India. Chandigarh is one of the few planned cities in India and was designed by Lutyen, the same man who designed the country's capital, New Delhi. The city is divided into various sectors, making navigation very easy. The city provides for a smooth stop over point from New Delhi to the interiors of Punjab. Bus, train and roads are the easy way to travel around in the state of Punjab.

Wagah


Wagah is one of the many border towns that is located along the border between Pakistan and India. The Wagah Border post is one of the major tourist attractions and is never out of zeal. The entire crowd coming to the town is to witness the flag changing ceremony between the soldiers of the two countries posted along the border. This occasion, taking place twice a day, is a symbolic gesture between the two countries. The display by the soldiers of both armies is breath taking and infuses a sense of patriotism to anybody witnessing the grand event.

Ludhiana


The city of Ludhiana is the home of woolen clothing in Punjab. With a thriving industry, this city pulls the tourists for its immensely popular woolen clothing options and the rivers that traverse the contours of the city.

Jallianwala Bagh


Historic in significance, the Jallianwala Bagh is a memorial site for those who served for the cause of freedom of the country. There are still some bullet holes on the walls of this scenic ancient garden. The site is a major attraction for tourists from within and outside India.
