We recently had been to Bhatinda in the month of December. We specially went to enjoy the winter vacation. It is so good destination. Some of the palaces was looking like must visited by everyone. We shouldn't miss it all our lives. There were some some of chaats, momos, and so on. We loved there in street bazaar. There were many good activities taken by our family members. I advised everyone to visit once in their lives on such beautiful destination.
