The city for relaxing and peaceful living

Pilibhit is a district in Bareilly region that is not a bigger place but surely you will feel relax and comfort here . . I have visited Pilibhit many time and every time when I go to there I feel my self comfort and relax. It is a place where you can live your life peacefully. Population is not much there but people who live there are very good in nature and are very helpful. But one thing that I would say about the political system of there which is not stable and people faces many trouble related to effort by the key people in politics There are a few temples which are famous I. E, Gauri Shankar temple, Kala temple etc. There is one very famous mosque called Jama mosque which is the carbon copy of jama mosque of Delhi There are many small places to visit such as Chuka beach, Wifercation, Mala forest etc I would suggest everyone to visit Pilibhit at least once in their lives and feel how peaceful place is this and enjoy your holidays.

Pilibhit Overview

Pilibhit is located along the boders of Nepal, in the state of Uttar Pradesh. The district covers an area of 3,504 sq km. Most parts of the Pilibhit region are covered with dense forests.

The name Pilibhit was derived from a small 15th century village, Old Pilibhit, which still exists on the banks of River Gaghra. This district was ruled by King Mayurdhwaja, a devotee of Lord Krishna. At the end of the 10th century, the princess of Chhinda Dynasty ruled Pilibhit and later in the 18th century Pilibhit fell in the hands of Rohella Warrior.

During the Mugal era, Pilibhit was an administrative unit. The mugal subedars constructed four gates – Bareilly darwaza, Hussaini darwaza, Jahanabadi darwaza and Dakhini darwaza around the administrative building.

The architectural inheritance from the past survives in Pilibhit and some of the buildings are very old in this region. The Jama Masjid building depicts the beautiful architectural work. Pilibhit is known for its art and craft. The Kumar community in the Tulamar locality has created various mud crafts for centuries.

Influenced by Braj culture, Pilibhit's music and dance is enriched with the devotion to Lord Krishna. Apart from this, there are different festivals which are celebrated in this district. Hindu festivals such as Diwali, Holi, Ram Navmi, and Basant Panchami are some of the important festivals of Pilibhit.

There are various tourist attractions in Pilibhit like Jama Masjid, Dargah-e-Shahji Miyan, Gauri Shankar Temple, Chuka Beach and Gomat Taal. The famous Pilibhit Tiger Reserve which encompasses twelve male and twenty two female tigers is a major attraction.

Tourists can reach the destination by road as well as by train. Pilibhit can be reached by bus from Bareilly. Direct buses are available from various cities like Delhi, Lucknow, Haridwar, Rishikesh, Kanpur, Rupaidhiya, Agra, Tanakpur, etc. Pilibhit is well connected by railways. The three express trains which reach here from Lucknow are Lucknow-Agra Express, Nainital Express and Rohilkhand Express.

The best time to visit Pilibhit is during the winter season, that is from the month of October to the month of January.

There is so much to see in Pilibhit.
