The word ‘Pujab’ is made up of two Persian words “Panj” and “Aab” Panj means five and Aab means water. The state is divided into three regions by its great rivers. The Majha north of river Beas,the Doaba sandwiched between the rivers Satluj and Beas and Malwa South of the Satluj river. Lying north of west of India, Punjab had to take a lot of battle ring from the invaders, the Persians, Mauryans, Scythians, Parthians, Kushan and then the Mughals. The Sikh faith, which played a decisive role in the creation of the Punjabi –speaking state came into being the 15th and 16th centuries. It was founded as a new religions order by Guru Nank and was followed by nine Gurus. With the partition of India, it was divided into East and West between Pakistan and India.

 Punjab has an amazing wealth of tourist destination. Punjab is a travellers dream, a gourmets paradise, a shoppers delight, a sportsman’s inspiration, a musicians mecca, a dancers delight.
