Punjab


Located in the north-western side of Indian subcontinent, the state of Punjab is renowned for its magnificent Golden Temple in Amritsar city. According to the geographical overview, the state forms larger part of the land comprising the province of Punjab called Pakistan. The part of Punjab located in India is bordered with Punjab (Pakistan) from the western side. The rest are Jammu & Kashmir from north, from northeast side there is Himachal Pradesh and on the southwest region is the state of Rajasthan. Punjab means the Land of Fiver Rivers which got its name due to the presence of five rivers naming Jhelum, Chenab, Ravi, Beas and Sutlej. The state is mainly dominant with Sikh religion.

Historical Overview


The word Punjab finds its description in the famous book “Ain-e-Akbari” in the first volume written by Abul Fazal of Akbar’s rule. The book says that the province of Punjab was separated into two territories naming Lahore and Multan. At the same time when Abul Fazal wrote second volume of Ain-e-Akbari he mentioned the name of Punjab in the book.

But some archaeologists believe that Punjab existed even before arrival of Mughal in India. When the civilisation of Indus valley was on its peak in around 3000 BC, it had magnificent cities of Harappa which is located in Sahiwal, a place situated in the western part of Punjab.

Culture


The culture of Punjab is brilliantly reflected through its folk dance and songs, arts and crafts. In addition, the sate is famous for extending well mannered hospitality. Various ethnic groups including Hindu, Muslim and Sikhs have contributed a lot to facilitate the prosperity of its culture. The rich culture of the state is ostensibly the symbol of prosperity and peace of the land.

The Punjabis of the land are said to be dynamic, energetic, daring and above all are gifted with inborn adaptability which helped them get over many adversities faced by them. Being candid and open to others are second nature of Punjabis here.
