A compound of the Persian words ‘panj’ meaning five and ‘aab’ meaning water, Punjab is named after the five tributaries of the Indus River which wind through the state. The mesmerizing and holy Golden Temple speaks of the Sikh culture, the Jalian Wallah Bagh is laden with colonial history, and so is the Wagah border. The Durgiana temple and the Sheesh Mahal are also must visits. In the north-eastern part of the state are found the Shivalik hills, and it is also fertile with lush green farms and large wetland areas, zoological parks, and bird sanctuaries that are abodes to around four hundred different species of birds among which the state bird Baz or northern goshawk can be found. The Wetlands include the national wetland Hari-Ke-Pattan, the wetland of Kanjli, and the wetlands of Kapurthala Sutlej. Also known for its folk dances like the traditional bhangra, the colorful Patiala suits, and the jutis, the distinctive ‘sarso saag’ and ‘makka roti’ cooked with large dollops of ghee and served with sweet lassi, all resound with the culture of the state.
