A Day in Ludhiana

Let us ask you a simple question: “Why do you travel?” 

Most of you are going to say “to explore new places, learn about the people and culture of different places, how they live, what their daily life looks like, and many more such things.” 

But what if we tell you that to know about all the above mentioned things you won’t have to travel now, would you believe us? 


Well, that’s what we are going to talk about here. In this new series we will be taking a few places across India and discussing how life at a specific place would look like. 

In the first section of this series, we will be talking about the textile Manchester of Punjab, Ludhiana. 

Morning Life in Ludhiana

Morning life is usually the same in Ludhiana like any other city, some people rush towards Rose garden to get their morning walk done, while some get ready to hit the gym. 

Not just that if you hit the city roads you will also notice the vendors in Ludhiana are getting ready to pick up vegetables, fruits, and the stuff they had to sell on the day from the grains market and clock tower market. 

If you are visiting areas like Model town, & Sarabha Nagar you would be able to visit the elite class of Ludhiana and notice how they are living their life in those big mansions. 


Once the people of Ludhiana are back from their workout or morning routines, breakfast is the most important thing for them before going to offices and their workplaces. Well, if you are visiting Ludhiana and want to know a few spots from where you can get amazing breakfast, then the one and only option is Basant Sweets on Dandi Swami Road. 

Here, you will be getting chole bhature with a big glass of lassi. But make sure to visit that place early because they have a limited stock and once the stock is finished, they don’t serve new customers for the day. 

Although if you ask us about the most eaten breakfast in Ludhiana, then it’s stuffed parathas. The second-best place to have your breakfast is on the same Dandi Swami Road, the name of the place is Natural 2. 

At this place you will get poori and aloo, the best part is these pooris are purely made up and cooked in ghee, that offers an exceptional taste. 

Cafes to work

By the time you have your breakfast, your time to visit your office will come and you can directly visit your office from there by taking cabs or auto rickshaw rides. In case if you are checking for quiet places to work from, you can visit Punjab University Library on Fountain Chowk road opposite Pavillion Mall. 

In this library you can create a monthly pass, with the help of which you can visit this place daily and get your work done peacefully. 

There are a few subways, KFC outlets, cafes like Uncle Jack and more from where you can do your office work. 

Lunch scenes

It’s lunch time now and the best place from where you can order your lunch is Sagar Ratna restaurant situated on Ferozpur Road. The best food item you can have as lunch from Sagar Ratna is their veg thali. 

The veg thali comprises a few food items like a dal, vegetables, roti, rice, raita, and gulab jamun in desserts. 

Although if you get good enough time to have your lunch then you can also visit Pandit Ji De Parathe nearby clock tower to have parathas which are considered as the best in Ludhiana.

As it’s the end to such an amazing day then it’s mandatory to have something non-veg for dinner. If you are looking for the best butter chicken or afgani chicken then “Baba Chicken” is the place you should visit. 

Baba Chicken is one of the oldest stores from where you can get authentic Punjabi style butter chicken. Not just that they have been using their old recipe to cook outstanding butter chicken and afgani chicken.
