Rupnagar is a town that is located in the Rupnagar district of the state of Punjab. The town was previously called as Ropar and was founded around the 11th century by a Raja called Rokeshar. The town’s main claim to fame is that it is located in the site of the Indus Valley Civilization. The Bhakra Dam is located nearby in a place called Nangal.

The surrounding areas of the town have been the site of six main civilizations and there are many archeological sites that are located in this region. Many shards of pottery and terracotta items, bones, arrowheads and other items have been found in the region.

The Anandpur Sahib Gurudwara is an important religious site and is considered to be one of the main centers of the Sikh religion. The place is one of the five sacred seats of the Sikh religion. There are two other gurudwaras that are located in the town as well and these are the Guruwara Parivar Vichora Sahib and the Gurudwara Batta Sahib. The latter is situated in a village on the outskirts of the place and this is a place that is well worth the visit. The people here are very friendly and travelling around is thus a pleasant affair.
