The most common thing I had heard about Ludhiana was that it is the hub of hosiery and woolen industry in India. So when I reached Ludhaina, I was not expecting a relatively clean city that was fast approaching the threshold of becoming a metropolis.
The lively and colorful Punjabi culture was reflected in every aspect of life of the people of this city which is located in the heart of Punjab. What amazed me most was the variety of food that was readily available at almost every street corner and the sheer number of people enjoying it.
If you are travelling to Ludhiana and want to know about the best places to eat, the following guide can help you.
