The famous region of Punjab - known for its agricultural productivity, people, and culture - is a region containing a delta of five rivers. This has led to agriculture being the largest industry in the state, and Punjab is the single largest producer of wheat in the country. The state of Punjab is geographically the easiest access point to the Indian mainland and has therefore been witness to both friendly and hostile inflows of people from across the world.
Punjab is known for its high quality of life and having the lowest level of hunger in the country. It is one of the most fertile areas in India. The textile, agricultural machinery, sugar and sports goods industries are the other prominent industries in the state. Punjab’s high standard of infrastructure has seen the state become a top candidate for future manufacturing and industrial projects, and the economy of Punjab is expected to shift towards these sectors slowly over the coming decades.
When in Punjab, one should visit the Golden Temple in Amritsar, one of the most beautiful destinations in the country and the most sacred site in the Sikh religion.
