One of the oldest cities of Punjab, Bathinda, formerly spelt as Bhatinda, is famous as a historical and religious centre dating back to 7000 BC.
However modern Bhatinda came into existence in 965 AD, established by Bala Rao Bhatti - a Bhati Rajput king. This is also the very city where Guru Hargobindji fought against the Mughals in 1634. Later, it followed the culture and systems of the erstwhile princely state of Patiala, but is now its own district.
Similar to the fascinating and significant history that the area has, it offers various attractions to tourists like Quila Mubarak, Bahia Fort, Chetak Park, Zoological Gardens, Dhobhi Bazaar as well as the Mazaar of Peer Haji Rattan. This town is a good choice to experience bits of history and feel Punjab.
