Forts,Palaces and Havelis of Panjab

Panjab, literally the Land of Five Rivers, has been the cradle of the world’s oldest civilization dating back to 2500 BC. It was o­n this land that the oldest scripture of the world, the Rigveda...

...was written and some of the best centres of learning developed. It was also in Panjab that some of the epic battles, including that of Mahabharat, were fought. Because of its geographical location, Panjab has been the gateway to all invaders entering through the North-West Frontier. It was because of the frequent invasions and conflict over possessions of territories that some sort of regular armies came into existence, which necessitated building of forts for protection of the Kings and their armies in the time of crisis.
Most of the important forts in Panjab lost their strategic and military importance with the British occupation of Panjab and sea routes replacing the traditional land routes through North-West Frontier. As a result of independence of India and merger of princely states with the Indian Union, these chiefs of princely India suddenly lost their glory and grandeur. While some of the palaces, like the Jagatjit Palace, Kapurthala, and the Motibagh Palace, Patiala, were converted into Sainik School and National Institute of Sports, some others being used as police training centers and government offices, with the result that their maintenance and upkeep has gone to the back seat.

Through pictures and narration, an attempt has been made to provide a glimpse of the endangered heritage of Panjab and create the needed awareness for conversation.

Apart from the well built and decorated residential chambers in most of the forts, the rulers of erstwhile princely states of Panjab also built huge palaces. Patiala and Kapurthala remained foremost in this respect. The rulers of Nabha, Jind, Malerkotla, Kalsia, Sangrur and Faridkot also built palaces for their use. Their nobles built beautiful mansions which were called havelis. While most of the havelis have been destroyed or replaced by modern structures, some of them, which have survived, give us an idea of the glory and grandeur of the feudal rule in Panjab and of the kind of artwork which then prevailed.
