Reasons to go to Ludhiana

1Kila Raipur Rural Olympics
Kila Raipur Rural Olympics

The Kila Raipur Rural Olympics is an annual 3-day sports bonanza that attracts millions of tourists every year. The main events include dog race, horse dance, camel race, tractor race, and a tug-of-war. The highlight of the Olympics is the bullock cart race, for which the stakes and rewards are the highest. There are some dare devil competitions like lifting bicycles with their teeth, pulling cars with teeth and riding a bicycle ringed with a burning tyre.

HolidayIQ traveller Aritro Dasgupta from Gurgaon shares, “I was in Ludhiana to proceed towards Kila Raipur where I went for 2 days to watch the Rural Olympics. From there I went further towards Jalandhar & Amritsar. Thus I do not really have much to share about Ludhiana as I did not explore the city much. The little bit I saw, my first impressions were prosperous city, extremely dirty, good food. Do try the food at Aman Chicken!”

When: February 4-7, 2016
Where:  Ludhiana

Every year in February, Ludhiana becomes a hotspot for hundreds of sports enthusiasts with also includes foreigners. All these people come down to see the special breed of bullocks, camels, dogs, mules and other animals competing in competitive events.

This year, the event will be held from February 4 -7, 2016.

Great Experience

It was a good place, along with the historical places like forts, and temples and gurudwaras, Ludhiana's SSI's blew me away, the lifestyle of people and the south city driveway, India's first plane restaurant, Spending time listening to the farmer's stories to the great business men's life histories. Ludhiana can help a traveler to not only gain the sightful experience about places but also lets you gain knowledge about the business industry, or should I say, How to be a billionaire?

Ludhiana Overview

History of Ludhiana

Ludhiana is a municipal corporation and city in Ludhiana district of Punjab. It is the largest city of Punjab, located 100 km from the western part of Chandigarh. The city covers an area of 310 square km. Situated on the old bank of the Sutlej River, 13 km south of its present course; Ludhiana is a major commercial and industrial centre of northern India. Originally known as Lodi-Ana, meaning Lodi's Place, Ludhiana was formed during the Lodi Dynasty. Lodi chiefs, Yusaf Khan and Nihang Khan, fixed the present site of Ludhiana that was a village called Mir Hota. Nihang Khan renamed the place to Ludhiana after he stayed back at the village as the Emperor's Lieutenant. The Fort of Ludhiana was constructed by Jalal Khan.Considered as the Manchester of India, Ludhiana is a major industrial hub of Punjab and is one of the high capita income cities of India. The city largely consists of knitwear factories, hosiery yarn mills and worsted and woollen yarns. It is also the location of the Punjab Agricultural University, which is one of the largest agricultural universities in Asia.

Things To Do in Agra

The climatic conditions in Ludhiana are extreme. The summers are very hot and the winters are extremely cold. This region receives rainfall in the summer season, close to the time of arrival of the monsoons.

Some important festivals and fairs celebrated here are Lohri (offerings are made to fire), Basant Panchami, Holi and Baisakhi. Most of the festivals here include dances and songs that are a part of ancient Punjabi culture like Bhangra (performed by males) and Gidha (performed by females).

The popular places here are mostly religious heritages and memorials like Gurudwara Nanaksar Jagraon, which is a memorial of Baba Nand Singh Kaleranwale, located around 38 km from Ludhiana. Located 35 km from Ludhiana in the village Machhiwara is the Gurudwara Charan Kamal where Guru Gobind Singh rested during the war.
