A region of five rivers rich in history and diverse in tradition, Punjab offers everything from Indus Valley archaeological sites to modern, French-designed city architecture and sports festivals. Tourism in Punjab revolves around heritage walks, battle sites, and great Sikh architecture, such as holy shrines, royal Punjabi palaces, and ancient forts. A highlight of any Punjab itinerary, the daily ceremonial lowering of the flag at the border with Pakistan reminds those who watch it of the awkward political divide in the region. Spread out over an alluvial plane with many rivers, and enjoying a subtropical climate, Punjab is dotted with traditional agricultural towns, many of which sit just a stone's throw from ancient Buddhist and Hindu archeological sites. Punjabi cuisine includes regional twists on several Indian classics, including samosas, butter chicken, and tandoori chicken.
