Punjab tour packages showcase the hallmarks of Punjab - culture, spirituality and epic stories, royal palaces, temples, Sikh architecture and tombs.
The Panchnad Pradesh of ancient India is now known as Punjab, the land of five rivers. This fertile land is home to the hard- working, fun- loving, ubiquitous
Punjabi. Though there are many religious places visited by millions of devotees but Amritsar is the religious and cultural capital of Punjab. Most of the
Punjab tours essentially comprise Amritsar. The Sikh faith came into being in Punjab. To the Hindus and Sikhs, Amritsar is synonymous with the holiest
shrine of Sikhism, the Harmandir Sahib of Golden Temple. It calls to the devotee in all corners of the world. A double- storey marble structure, its
dome is covered with gold, as indeed are those of many Sikh temples (gurdwaras) all over the country. This is due to the devotion of the people for
whom offering a part of their earnings is very important. Manual labour or 'Karseva' is another very important offering. It may be in the form of
sweeping and washing the temple premises, cooking or actually bricklaying and building the Place. Be witness to these pious practices during Punjab
holidays. Ludhina, the largest and industrialized city of Punjab, is economic nerve centre of Punjab. Anandpur Sahib, Fatehgarh Sahib, Patiala etc
are prominent tourist destinations of Punjab and are part of many Punjab travel packages.
