A town of great antiquity, is situated at a distance of about 84 kms. from Amritsar on the G.T. Road going to Calcutta. Jalandhar is known for its sportmen as well as its sports industry, its steel and iron re-rolling mills, rubber goods, electric goods, automobile parts, and sewing machines factories and handloom products.


Jalandhar continued to flourish under the Mughals and played a prominent role in the freedom struggle as many patriots were born here.


Jalandhar boasts of many historic monuments. Prominent among them are the mausoleum of Iman Nasir, the fort at Phillaur which once served as Maharaja Ranjit Singh's line of defence against the British, a Shiv Mandir which dates back to the Lodhi era and the Gurudwara at Kartarpur. The Gurudwara at Kartarpur (16 km from Jalandhar town) was built by the Fifth Sikh Guru, Guru Arjun Devji in 1656 A.D. Every year, a fair is held on the birth anniversary of the Guru when a large number of devotees gather to pay homage.


Catholic Cathedral (Jalandhar Cantt.) : The rare cathedral initiated by representatives of His Holiness, the Pope is the only one of its kind in the East. Its cosmo-cultural design is a tribute to the Punjabi tradition.


Harballabh Fair : The most notable event in Jalandhar is the annual national Harballabh Fair which is held every year from 26th to 29th of December. Harballabh is the oldest festival of Indian Classical music in the world.


If there exists an ancient city with a modern face, then Jalandhar fits the description.
