Kapurthala , Punjab

People should visit Kapurtahala once in their lives. It is the living testimony of how a princely state actually is like. The grandeur and the overwhelming nature of it will probably never decrease. You get the feeling not only through the palaces and gardens that are all over the city but also the people. Somehow you realise these people have lives with royalty in their land for a long time. It is definitely an experience that teaches you a lot about princely states. Kapurthala in Punjab was the capital of the Kapurthala state in British India. The princeliness of course started about a thousand years back with the ruler of Jaisalmer who established this state. Now there have been repeated conquests and changes in the princely rule but the essence of this land has remained as intact as ever. This is a land which belonged to kings and every part of it is aware of that. The palaces and the wonderful architecture all over this place today is onsidered as part of the land and many institutions have been established in then. Yet when you enter Kapurthala you cannot help but exclaim at the beauty of this city. The one place that you should visit other than gaping at the many wonderful structures here is the Kanjli Wetlands. It is on the western Bein rivulet at the outskirts of the city and has been included in under the Ramsar Convention. It is a very popular site for bird watching and boating. A city that will self narrate its princely past to you, all you need to do is be here to appreciate it.
