Welcome to PatialaHeritage.in
The city of Patiala awaits you with its quiet splendors. Its royal mystique, its
grandeur, a whole host of magnificent buildings, gardens and parks and above all an ambience all of its own invites you quietly but surely. Being the south-eastern district of Punjab and being also one of the youngest cities of the state, Patiala still holds its own when it comes to retaining the old-world charm and the many-faced delights of its rich heritage. Patiala has something for everyone.
To the lover of history and things historical, it offers a glorious chapter in the history of 18th and 19th century Punjab, in particular the history of the Malwa region of Punjab. In addition to this, it offers fascinating glimpses of the city’s transition from the pre-independence royal past into the post-independence 21st century present.
For the aficionados of architecture, the city is a veritable feast. Beginning with the majestic Qila Mubarak and the charming Sheesh Mahal Art Gallery on to the luxuriant grandeur of the Moti Bagh Palace and the colonial Rajindra Palace/Kothi nestling in the verdant luxuries of the Baradari Gardens and ending in the old glories in the battlements of the Qila Bahadurgarh on the outskirts of the city, Patiala becomes an architectural banquet like no other, replete in dishes and desserts of all tastes and kinds. In fact, Patiala is ready to be relished, savored and later on cherished by all kinds of architectural taste-buds.
