Welcome to Western Punjab
On your way to western Punjab, you will cross several prosperous industrial hubs. Chief among these is Ludhiana, a charmless town home to Hero, India's leading two-wheeler company. The main reason to visit is the Kila Raipur Sports Festival, known as the 'rural Olympics', held every February. Further northwest, Jalandhar is a similar industrial centre. Little evidence remains of its ancient history, but the town resounds with Indian classical music during the Harballabh Sangeet Sammelan every December.
