Bahadurgarh Fort is in Patiala in Punjab.

This grand fortress was built by nawab Saif Khan during the reign of Mughal emperor Aurangzeb and was originally called Saifabad. But as legend has it, the fort was later renamed to commemorate the stay of the ninth Sikh Guru, Guru Tegh Bahadur.

The fort is a treasure trove of Islamic-style monuments, such as the Diwan-e-Aam and an elegant mosque. You can also visit the nawab’s tomb that lies just a stone’s throw away from the fort. But the fort’s history doesn’t end there. In the 19th century, Maharaja Karam Singh of Patiala renovated and built a gurdwara within the fort. Fast forward to 1989, the fort’s grounds now serve as the Punjab Police Commando Training School.

As you explore the fort, take note of its circular shape and two ramparts, as well as the moat that surrounds it. Inside the fort, you’ll find the Gurudwara Sahib Patshai Navin and a mosque, showcasing a beautiful example of peaceful coexistence. But don’t just take our word for it, come and see it for yourself! With its rich history and stunning architecture, the Bahadurgarh Fort is a must-visit destination for any history buff or architecture enthusiast.
