Places to visit

  • Pinjore Gardens : Both the gorgeous gardens and the Hindustan Machine Tools (HMT) factory are regarded as Asia's best examples of Mughal gardens from the 17th century. The Sheesh Mahal, Rang Mahal, and Jal Mahal, all in the Rajasthani Mughal style and made up of a number of waterfalls and fountains, may be found amid the tiered gardens. Pinjore Gardens are surrounded by unusual trees and provide for a beautiful scene at dusk. After Maharaja Yadavindra Singh, the final king of Patiala, they were christened Yadavindra Gardens after being constructed in the 17th century. Fidahi Khan, an architect who served as Aurangzeb's lieutenant and cousin, is supposed to have designed them.

It has been designated as a protected monument under the Punjab Ancient and Historical Monuments and Archaeological Sites and Remains Act, 1964. With idols of Apsaras, Gandharvas, gods and goddesses, animals, and sensual motifs from the modern day, the temple's ruins have been artistically organized in the style of an open-air museum.
