Northern Punjab

Northern Punjab is defined more than anything by its proximity to the Pakistan border, with a heavy military presence always in attendance. Before Partition, the Punjab extended well in to present-day Pakistan and many families still have members or property on both sides of the divide, some of whom have not seen each other for generations. Today the area is dominated by agriculture, with the efficiently farmed plains providing a stark contrast to the soaring peaks of neighbouring Kashmir, and by Amritsar's incomparable Golden Temple.
