    Tilla Baba Sheikh Farid

    The 12th-century Sufi saint Sheikh Farid is said to have meditated here for 40 days, and the Tilla Baba Sheikh Farid is a monument built to mark that spot. The small, white and green domed structure particularly attracts pilgrims on Thursdays.

    The 12th-century Sufi saint Sheikh Farid is said to have meditated here for 40 days, and the Tilla Baba Sheikh Farid is a monument built to mark that spot. The small, white and green domed structure particularly attracts pilgrims on Thursdays. However, on any day of the week, visitors are greeted by beautifully sung verses from the Granth Sahib, which includes much of Sheikh Farid’s poetry, and the customary langar (community kitchen). Some of the personal belongings of the mystic are preserved here. They include a piece of wood on which he wiped his hands, and the basket he was said to have been forced to carry to help construct the fort of Faridkot.

    One of the oldest forts of Punjab, the foundation of the Qila Mubarakwas laid as early as the 13th century. Several extensions by subsequent rulers were made and today the fort includes a palace, a treasury, and a well-maintained garden. The fort’s multi-storeyed entrance is affixed with a mammoth wooden gate, while a stunningly beautiful Sheesh Mahal (hall of mirrors) occupies its first floor. To its south is situated the Moti Mahal; a gurdwara and military barracks make up the north. The Durbar Hall within the main building is an architectural marvel: remaining cool even in the height of summer, its false ceiling skilfully decorated with plaster of Paris and woodwork.

    Entry to the place is restricted and can be obtained only after due permission.

    An example of the Gothic style of architecture, the Raj Mahal was built during the reign of Maharaja Balbir Singh, at the end of the 19th century. The complex comprises a group of buildings within a vast and irregular-walled enclosure. It consists of the main palace, the Tasveer Ghar (picture house), a Baradari (a twelve-door, open pavilion), a gurdwara, three small pavilions called doll houses, two swimming pools, a well and service quarters. Its main entrance, a magnificent three-storey gateway called Raj Deori, is a hospital today. Spread over 15 acres, the splendid lawns were considered a remarkable achievement in this arid area.

    Entry to the place is restricted and can be obtained only after due permission.
