Overall rating: 7

Situated in northwest India, Punjab is home to the world’s oldest civilizations, the ‘Indus Valley civilization’. The literal meaning of Punjab is the ‘Land of Five Rivers’ derived from the Persian words ‘Panj’ meaning five and ‘ab’ meaning water.

Punjab is separated into the Malwa, Majha and Doaba regions.

This state homes the fabled Golden Temple and has a catastrophic past of hurt and agony.

Chandigarh is the capital of Punjab which is considered to be a union territory as it is also considered to be the capital of the adjacent Haryana.

This state has innumerable sites of Sikh temples called ‘Gurudwara’s’, shrines and architecture.

Tourists who are mainly interested in epic history bank upon Punjab’s exquisitely beautiful architecture and its unique culture.
