Rupnagar Overview

The district of Rupnagar in the Patiala administrative division of Punjab lies in close proximity to Chandigarh. The district is spread over an area of 2,056 sq km. Formerly known as Ropar, it shares boundaries with Nawanshahar, Mohali and Fatehgarh Sahib districts of Punjab. Rupnagar district was carved out on 1st November 1966 during the re-organisation of the state.

Rupnagar was founded by the erstwhile King of Punjab, Rokeshar, in the 11th century. The king named the territory after his son Rup Sen. Excavations at various sites in the district have revealed traces of Indus Valley Civilisation.

Earthen wares, figurines and coins found in the region date back to the Harrappa - Mohenjo-daro civilisation. Besides, the historic remains dating back to Chandra Gupta, Kushan, Hoon and Mughal period have also been found in the region. Rupnagar has also witnessed the war of Guru Gobind Singh against the Mughals.

Along with historical importance, there are several sites in the district that are associated with Sikh Gurus, prominent being Chamkaur Sahib, Anandpur Sahib and Kiratpur Sahib. Places like Bhakra Nangal Dam, Gurdwara Sadabarat, Jateshwar Mahadev Temple and Takhat Sri Keshgarh Sahib are popular tourist attractions. Numerous remains of pottery and terracotta items, bones and arrowheads reflect the culture of the town.

Hola Mohalla is a chief cultural event of the region, which is celebrated with great enthusiasm on the next day of Holi. During this three-day fair, thousands of Sikh devotees across the nation visit Gurudwara Anandgarh Sahib to witness the procession by Nihangs, the Sikh warriors. Nihangs demonstrate art of swordsmanship and various martial games, which include riding and tent pegging.

Travellers can reach Rupnagar with the availability of buses, trains and flights. The nearest airport to the district headquarters is Chandigarh, which is connected with major cities like New Delhi, Mumbai and Jaipur. Besides, the railway junction of Rupnagar is connected with all the major cities of northern India. There is an extensive network of bus services that connect the city from nearby places.

The district of Rupnagar has a dry climate with hot summers and very cold winters. Among the four seasons, the best time to visit Rupnagar is during autumn.
