Punjab, located in the north western part of India, is one of the smallest and the most prosperous states of India. The five rivers Sutlej, Beas, Ravi, Chenab and Jhelum gave it its name 'punj-ab' or the 'land of five waters'. These five rivers divide the state into three regions: Majha, Doaba and Malwa.

It is the second most preferred state in north India for holidays, leisure and recreation. Further, it also experiences tourist arrivals from various parts of the world like United Kingdom, United States, Canada, Germany etc.
