Very good city. If you want to purchase traditional clothes and enjoy different types of food then Patiala is one of best city of Punjab. Due to my relatives in Patiala I occasionally visit this place. Places to visit are Gurudwara Dukhniwaran sahib, kali Mata temple, Moti bagh, shesh Manali and much more. I enjoyed this city very much. If you want to stay then there are lot of hotels in Patiala on very reasonable rates. Jalebi, lassi and pure punjabi traditional food makes my day very exciting. Overall good city to visit.

Patiala is also known as the ‘city of newspapers’ and is the second media hub of the state of Punjab. The famous printing press of Munshi Nawal Kishore was also established here in the 19th century. The city is also famous for being the home of Hindustani classical music, known by the name of Patiala Gharana. Some popular terminologies are also associated with this city like turban, paranda, Patiala peg and others.

Patiala was a princely state of Punjab Province during the British Rule, which was later ruled by the Sidhu Dynasty. Today the city is walled with some popular gateways like Darshani Gate, Lahouri Gate, Nabha Gate, Samana Gate and many more.

After independence, Patiala also emerged as a major educational centre of Punjab for comprising significant educational institutes like Punjab University, Thapar University, Rajiv Gandhi National University of Law, Multani Mal Modi College and many more.

Patiala is also a renowned tourist destination and offers plenty of places to visit like Qila Mubarak Complex, Qila Androon, Rang Mahal, Sheesh Mahal, Ran-Baas, Darbar Hall (Divan Khana), Jalau Khana and Sard Khana, etc. The large palaces (Mahal) and Kothis present in Patiala are a prominent part of the tradition, culture, and history of this city.

Patiala experiences extremely hot summers but its winters are not very cold. This is why there is a large tourist turnover in the city between the months of October and March.
