Punjab’s heritage is too robust to be either forgotten or lost. It is a land of martial Anandpur Sahibtraditions where the nation of India rose as one to combat all aggressions from the North – West and all others who dared to challenge the integrity and sovereignty of this golden land. A land of tough , god – fearing peasants living in its rich traditions of hard – work and toil , song & dance and patriotism , is today one of the most vibrant states of India. This land of the brave Sikhs echoes with the melodies Gurbani of the sacred Guru Granth Sahib from the beautiful gurudwaras spread all over Punjab.

This tour is specially prepared to present the best of the great Sikhs shrines in the region. It will be relevant to quote Mahatama Gandhi as follows , when he wrote about this land:

“ Historically Punjab may be considered the most important province of India. It was here that the Aryans of the Vedic times first made their homes. It was here that the hymns of the Rig Veda were chanted. It was to this province at the University of Takshila that seekers after knowledge flocked from various parts of the world. The Scythians , the Tartars and the Persians had to measure sword with the sons of Punjab in their attempt to penetrate India.”
