Shivala Banna Mall was built by Deewan Banna Mall - the Chief Minister of Maharaja Kapurthala. Located in the main city of Nawanshahr, the Shivala is believed to be as old as the city. Deewan Banna Mall used to travel to Nawanshahr on an elephant, which is the reason why the gates of the Shivala are huge. There is a temple and a hospital, offering free food and medication, within the complex. None of the members of Banna Mall's family stay here; therefore, it is maintained by a committee known as the Shivala Banna Mall Committee.
