A Travel Guide To Joshimath

Shahi Samadhan, Kapurthala

Must Visit

Shahi Samadhan (The Royal Cenotaphs) is part of the famous Shalimar Garden. Surrounded by a pool, park and library, this place has mausoleums of former rulers of Kapurthala. A huge structure on a marble plinth contains the samadhi of Kharak Singh, Jagatjit Singh and Paramjit Singh.

The garden and samadhis exhibit traditional architecture as well as grandeur associated with the royal family. This garden also hosts the annual Basant Panchami Mela that draws several tourists to Kapurthala. It also houses the famous 'Baradari', which is believed to be the place where Maharaja Ranjit Singh and Maharaja Fateh Singh first met.
