Qila Bahadurgarh Overview

Ranked 11 of 12 sightseeing in Patiala
Qila Bahadurgarh is located on the Patiala-Chandigarh Road on the outskirts of the city. Constructed by Nawab Saif Khan in 1658 AD and later renovated by Maharaja Karam Singh of the Patiala Royal family in 1837, Qila Bahadurgarh was considered impregnable due to its unique architecture.
Though in its heydays the fort had three massive walls and two huge moats, this citadel is in a dilapidated condition today. The name Bahadurgarh was given by Maharaja Karam Singh as a tribute to the Sikh Guru Teg Bahadur who stayed here for a while.
Apart from its rich architecture, the fort has got a religious significance as well. The fort houses a Gurudwara, Gurdwara Sahib Patshai Nauvin, and a mosque, Saif Khan's Mosque, in its premises. Saif Khan's tomb is also found near the mosque.
The best time to visit is during Mela Roza Sharit Nawab Saif Ali, a fair organized in the memory of Saif Khan in June and January.
Currently, Bahadurgarh Fort is in the possession of Punjab Police.
One can also visit Panch Bati Garden and Punjab University which are situated nearby.
Easily accessible, Qila Bahadurgarh is situated at a distance of 6 km from the city.
