the land of five rivers and integrated cultural history, is a treasure
trove for an avid tourist. For this land of the great gurus not only
boasts of ancient monuments but throbs with historical embodiments. It
is no secret that whoever comes to this land of yellow fields with
blue mountains providing the romantic and picturesque backdrop has
never gone back without imbibing the essence of Punjab.
is no dearth of breathtaking palaces, for Punjab was the seat of
royality, as the imposing Quila Mubarak will tell you. Museums galore
and so are the religious places with the Golden Temple offering
succour to the mind and soul of any one visiting. If you are a wild
life freak, then Punjab can take you on a tour of the sanctuaries, which
are hot favourites with migratory birds. Since this state borders
Pakistan, there are two main posts from which you can peep into the
land that was once an integral part of Punjab and experience the
feelings of the people separated by a line.
The much truncated India's portion of present Punjab is divided
into three natural regions : the Majha,the Doaba and the Malwa.
