Introduction To Book  'Punjab - Travel Guide'

Punjab Land of five rivers and countless legends, ten Gurus and innumerable mystics, deep, golden fields and sweeping highways, poetry and painting - a land that is larger, infact, than the sum of its parts.

This Travel Guide pieces together the many facets of this robust land and its people to create a picture that encapsulates both the most visible aspects of Punjab's heritage - the Golden Temple - and those less explored - exquisite maqbaras nestled in bylanes, grand forts looming over small towns, pure white gurdwaras set in lush greenery.

Besides offering illustrated, historical tours of Amritsar, Kapurthala and Patiala, this Guide also moves through less well-charted terrain. From Jalandhar's Nur Mahal, Ferozpur's havelis and the ruins of Sirhind to the unshakeable religious tolerance of Malerkotla, the Guide throws up some truly intriguing, often unexpected, marvels from the plains of Punjab.

In addition, there is a chapter on India's first planned city and Punjab's serene capital, Chandigarh. There are also sections on Punjab's military traditions, diaspora, cruisine, literature and art, which give a glimpse into the state's epic history.

Highly visual, with over 200 photographs, illustrations and maps, and a detailed Practical Information section, this is a perfect companion not just for the interpid tourist but also the armchair traveller.
