“Apna Ghar Toh Apna Hi Hota Hai,” no matter what you do, where you go, and how big you become, it is impossible to get away from your roots. Similarly, it doesn’t matter if you go to Delhi, Mumbai, or Canada, but nothing compares to Ludhiana coz “We are pakke Ludhianvis by heart.”
Being one of the largest cities of Punjab, Ludhiana is classified as “Smart City” and “Mini Delhi” for its iconic places. Here’s the list of Top places which you will find only in Ludhiana:
A Beautiful Mess – The Clock Tower
Back in time Clock tower was considered a milestone by the British. It was made to mark the silver jubilee of Queen Victoria’s reign. Inaugurated in 1906, the prestigious Clock Tower is Ludhiana’s heritage.
Traditional Sangla Wala Shivala Mandir
The 400-year-old temple of Ludhiana, Sangla Wala Shivala Mandir holds a special place in Ludhiana. The temple celebrates Shivratri on a large scale with thousands of devotees visit the Mandir early morning to worship Lord Shiva.
Ancient Lodhi Fort
Lodhi Fort, locally known as Purana Qila, was a grand structure which now lies in ruins due to its poor maintenance. This 500-year-old fort was constructed by Muslim ruler Sikander Lodhi in the last decade of the 15th century. It is situated near Daresi ground and is the only fort in Ludhiana with historical importance.
Gurdwara Dukhniwaran Sahib
Located in the heart of Ludhiana, Gurdwara Dukhniwaran Sahib is the only gurdwara where 24-hour Sewa Simran Gurbani Kirtan takes place. Equipped with Hi-Tech projections, this gurdwara puts Gurbani on wide screens so devotees can better understand the hymns of the scripture as the priests sing.
Jam-Packed Chaura Bazaar
Situated in Old Ludhiana, Chaura Bazaar is not so chaura but the oldest market in the city. It is considered the busiest market with everything available in its lanes. It is well-known for its flea market that is set up every Sunday.
Iconic Rakh Bagh
Lush green garden, toy train, open gym, rides for children, and running track for the youngsters, Rakh Bagh holds a special place in our memories. Filled with greenery everywhere, the park is extremely beautiful places to visit and have some “me” time in its serenity.
During childhood days, having ice-cream and slush at the Kipps market was the weekend ritual. Roaming around the street, chit-chatting with friends and visiting restaurants at Kipps, we didn’t realize when we grew up and still this place remains the favorite place to visit. Isn’t it?
The fondest memory of school days was going on a trip to Hardy’s World. Fun-filled rides, picnic in the park, and refreshing slides in the water park, Hardy’s World used to be the most amazing and adventurous places. This is a place where you can always be young.
The Gedi-route of Ludhiana, South City is the place where most of us have spent our young days. Going on long drives with friends, photo-session with Chai, and lots of memories at F2 racing park. This is the place that still stands special for us even today.
Ludhiana may have some issues which need urgent attention from the government, but this city remains close to our heart and it always will. This is the city where we have grown up and have made several memories at each of the above places. No matter what happens, we will always LOVE LUDHIANA!
