Sweet home

The Kalgidhar Society works especially in rural North India to eradicate addiction among its patients. Akal De-Addiction Centre is doing an excellent job in this area. Patients receive care from psychiatrists, doctors, counselors, and nursing assistants.

Sangrur Overview

Sangrur is a major town and the headquarters of Sangrur district in Punjab. It is also the capital of the erstwhile State ‘Jind’, located at the intersections of the roads connecting Delhi, Patiala, Bhatinda and Ludhiana. Basically a rural area in the southern part of the state of Punjab, it is believed to be founded by Sanghu, a Jat before 1900 B.C. The original settlers were people from Baluchistan and Sind, who got attracted by the fertile soil and abundance of water and they moved along with the path of river Satluj and settled at Rohira. With good quality of life people built houses with dried bricks until 2000 B.C. New set of people arrived with superior equipments and sturdy pottery. With rich historic origins, it was once the capital city of Raja Sangat Singh in 1827.

The present day Sangrur district was formed in the year 1948 and is bounded by Firozpur and Ludhiana district in the north, Jind district (State Haryana) in the south, Patiala district in the east and Bhatinda district in the west. Most of the municipal towns of the district have railway stations. Only light industries of handicrafts and handloom weaving exist here. New heights of agriculture production due to high yielding were achieved during the famous “Green Revolution”. Due to the rustic background and vast open spaces, it is an idea destination for those seeking the traditional hospitality of true Punjab.

There is so much to see in Sangrur.
