It is also home to several cultural attractions that draw in large flocks of tourists from all over India. From ancient religious sites to unusual museums, here are some of the top places to see in Ludhiana.
Rakh Bagh is a famous park in Ludhiana, and has been a favorite relaxation spot among locals for quite a few generations. The main attraction of Rakh Bagh lies in its popular mini train, which chugs along through the park and is especially beloved by children. This scenic, adorable joyride is a must if you’re visiting the park, and the timing is just right, too: while the train has been dormant for quite some time as the park underwent renovations, it will be making a welcome return this year to delight locals and travelers alike.
