Pathankot - gateway to North India

To be found in the foothills of Kangra valley, surrounded by two rivers Ravi and Chakki on its adjacent sides, Pathankot is a manifestation of the wonders of Mother Nature and times gone by. The city was located in the Gurdaspur district of Punjab and was initially a part of the princely region Nurpur.

It connects Jammu and Kashmir with other parts of India, thus the city came to be known as ‘Cock Neck City’, due to its strategic location and shape. In addition to this, it’s well connected roads have made  easier for its  tourists to head on to Shimla, Dharamsala, Dalhousie, Kangra, Amritsar, Chandigarh, Delhi and Jwalaji, within few hours.

The enthralling beauty of this town is in its attractions, namely the famous Ranjit Sagar Dam. It is the highest gravity dam in the whole continent. Madhopur Headworks and the renowned Shahpur kandi are some of the remarkable and beautiful retreats to be found in its vicinity. On the other hand for tourists who are inclined more towards spiritual side, the town has two exceptionally attractive mosques and an ancient Shiva temple in its premises. The magnificent details and artwork of these well maintained shrines make them unique.

Apart from its rich vegetation, lush greenery and attractive shrines, the city has a rich historical past associated with it. Pathankot remained under the rule of many rulers and has still managed to serve as the prime spot for trade routes leading to central Asia. In addition to this, it has continued to be a main center for the famous Shawl and Loi weaving industries in North India.
