Sirhind

Sirhind, a small township on G.T. Road is a historical place. The city is a symbol of splendid architecture. The origin of the city probably dates back to the 10th century.

History
Predominantly a Mogul territory, Sirhind was given special attention by emperors like Akbar and Jahnagir. Ferozeshah Tughluq used Sirhind as his regional headquarters and built many edifices including the Ferozeshah Fort.

Places to visit

Aam Khas bagh , a famous garden built by Akbar and later developed by Jahangir and Shahjahan is a major attraction of Sirhind.

Rauza Sharif of Hazrat Mujadid-Alaf-Saani, Sheikh Ahmed Farooqi of Sirhind was a contemporary of Akbar and Jahangir. His mausoleum is regarded as the second Mecca by Sunni Muslims all over the world as the Sheikh is considered second to the prophet, Hazrat Mohammed. Muslims, Hindus and Sikhs gather here in large numbers for the annual Urs.
