Faridkot

Faridkot , Punjab

This is one small city in Punjab. In the land of abundance Faridkot is also quite an abundant city. Prior to independence this was under the princely rule of the Maharaja of Faridkot and somehow this city has managed to retain some of its hard won princeliness. Faridkot is a quiet and peaceful city. Not in the league of the metros it has been able to retain the charm that you can only associate with small cities. Thus it will always be one of the cities which you will want to go to. There are some religious places here that are worthy of visits. The Gurdwara Tilla (Chilla) Baba Farid is as old as the town-self. This place is situated near the Qilla Mubarak. Baba Farid remained at this place in meditation for 40 days before proceeding to Pakpattan. This is one of the places that is a centre of worship and has been from the very moment the town was conceived. The main religion of Faridkot is Sikhism and there are some very important Gurudwaras that dot the entire scenary. Some of them are Gurudwara Godari Sahib, Gurudwara Tibbi Saib and Giridwara Guru di Dhab among many others. The Qila Mubarak is one of the massive and regal architectures that adorn the place. This was where the entire activity of Faridkot took place in the older days. The Raj Mahal is another one of the beautiful structures. This was the palace of the Maharaja Bikrama Singha and it completely reflects the grandeur that was part of the bygone era. The fairy Cottage and the Check tower are two other quite magnificent structured here in Faridkot. A city that is not afraid of the future but has a past right where its heart is, Faridkot is worth a visit.
