We were 5 of us some known and some unknown to each other on a trip organized by Birdsong & Beyond a girls gang from Delhi. The excellent roads in Punjab ensured a smooth and safe drive to Bharatgarh. There we were greeted by Mrs Maninder Kaur....our warm hostess. The aura of the fort it's surrounding ravines, canals and fields......flora and fauna....made us feel one with nature. The centuries old architecture of the fort took us back in time....and Maninder made us feel so at home and shared anecdotes and stories about herself and the their lineage. For the citybred this was a wonderful place to de-stress and soak in all of mother natures splendor. In the course of our trip we were able to do the Virasat e Khalsa, Nainadevi temple and Anantpur Sahib. The luxurious comfort of our dwelling, excellent food provided by the hosts and the neat and clean upkeep of the environs ensured a most relaxing and luxurious stay. All in all a wonderful experience.....would recommend to everybody.
