Patiala, the second largest city in Punjab State, is situated to South-eastern part of Punjab. The entire city was Spreaded around the renowned fort of Patiala, called “Qila Mubarak”. In this modernized culture, even now you could see Punjabi Men in Patiala wearing traditional Turban and Paranda, Punjabi Women wearing Patiala Trousers and Jutti (kind of footwear).

You can feel the Rajput Style and elegance got mixed in Patiala’s culture and traditions.
