FieldsOfPunjab

Punjab translates to "Land of Five Rivers".

These rivers refer to the rivers Jhelum, Chenab, Ravi, Sutlej, and Beas.

All are tributaries of the Indus River, the Chenab being the largest.

The five rivers makes Punjab one of the most fertile regions of India.

FieldsOfPunjab2

Punjab's fields are so breath-taking, had to add another palette.

GoldenTemple

Golden Temple is the oldest place of worship for Sikhs.

Golden Temple

GoldenTemple2

And because the Golden Temple looks so different at Amrit Vaylaa (the ambrosial hours before dawn), had to add another palette.

Golden Temple 2

Pindh

Pindh translates to Village. Villages make up the bedrock of Punjab.

Pindh

Haveli

Havelis were grand mansions that bustled with life generations ago.

Many havelis have fallen into disrepair, yet they remain beautiful reminants of an era gone by.

Haveli

Haveli2

Havelis always had a courtyard. Usually light, airy, with meticulously decorated structures.

Mouthwatering dish of Amritsar, Punjab.

BiryaniRice

Biryani Rice, the best rice dish in the world, made with the one and only Basmati rice, originating from (you guessed it), Punjab.

AmritsariLassi

Amritsari Lassi is a thick, cooling yogurt-based (almost buttermilk) drink that compliments these heavy meals.

Or, Lassi can be enjoyed on it's own :-)

Amritsari Lassi

AmritsariPedeWaliLassi

Lassi can also be a dessert.

Amritsari Pede Wali Lassi is a decadant, cooling drink that includes milk-based pastries.

Certainly gives Hot Cocao and Marshmallows a run for their money!

Kulfi

Kulfi, a savory ice cream (ice cream is an under-statement) treat. Pistachio-based is most popular, yet it can be any flavor.

So many beautiful colors Gidha dancers wear - had to add another palette!

Teej

Teej is generic name for festivals celebrated across India by girls and women.

In Punjab, this festival is known as Teeyan. Teeyan involves women getting together and performing Gidda, married women visiting their families and receiving gifts. It is also traditional for women to ride on swings.

Phulkari

Phulkari is an embroidery technique that means "Flower Work". In olden days women created these colorful shawls for themselves and family, making it a true folk art of Punjab. Now the Government is trying to promote this artform.

Phulkari

Phulkari2

Because I love colors so much.

Phulkaris are usually made into Dupattas to be worn with Salwar Kameez (Punjabi ladies's suit), as shown in the reference photo.

Jutti are shoes. Who can live without shoes?
