- Nice History. Got to learn alot from this place. It's a nice walk and not too far from the Golden Temple. We visited twice once being a weekend was so busy but on a weekday less of a crowd.Written 30 January 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- This place is about 50 kms from Amritsar. Place has a confluence of two rivers Satluj and beas and further moves water towards Rajasthan and Pakistan. Barrage built over this place houses a gurudwara and a bird century. Birds from Russia and upper hemisphere can be easily spotted in winters. A good place for a day out with family.Written 15 May 2021This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- The greatest ruler of Punjab, Maharaja Ranjit Singh, had his summer palace at Amritsar’s Ram Bagh. Today, the name ‘Ram Bagh’ doesn’t apply merely to the palace itself, and not even to the spread of greenery surrounding it, but to a much larger area as well, which includes all sorts of buildings, some derelict, some still in use, some old, some new, some private and some public.
We stumbled upon Ram Bagh Palace Gardens because we’d gone to visit the Maharaja Ranjit Singh Panorama next door. Once we’d seen that, we decided to wander around a bit, because right opposite was a large circular garden with massive trees soaring high up above it. From there, we went wandering on, delving deep into the area that abuts this. There are a couple of fancy clubs here—the Amritsar Club and the Service Club—but since their premises are fenced off, there’s not much chance of inadvertently trespassing.
The Ram Bagh Palace itself, its architecture looking an interesting mix of Mughal, Rajput and colonial, was covered by scaffolding so we couldn’t even go very close to it, let alone enter. But there are plenty of ancillary buildings dotted around the vicinity, and these were quite interesting. Some of them were pretty large: one, with beautifully carved red sandstone, had obviously been recently renovate. Near this was a small four-sided pavilion with a white marble floor, more red sandstone, and plastered columns painted white to appear like marble. Of the buildings, the only one we could go into was this little pavilion; the others were all locked.
There are rough paths between the buildings and lots of trees and greenery: birds and squirrels are also to be seen here; we spent a good bit of time watching birds!
We had fun exploring, though we came away very dusty and dirty. This is recommended if you’re the explorer, not the ‘tourist’. There are no signs indicating which building is what, there’s no organized structure to the space, and it’s more the sort of thing, at least right now, that would appeal to someone who was willing to brave dust and dirt. Hopefully, in a few years’ time, when they’ve completed restoration work, they will also neaten up the surroundings and make this a more consolidated, well-signposted space worthy of Ranjit Singh’s summer palace.Written 1 January 2019This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.
