History of BhikhiwindFrom Sikh religion’s point of view Bhikhiwind town and also rest of Tarn Taran region is one of the historical as well as sacred regions. That’s because Tarn Taran region is founded by Shri Arjan Dev Ji, who was fifth Sikh Guru in Sikh religion. He founded this region by laying the foundation of Gurudwara Sri Darbar Sahib in Tarn Taran. This sacred gurudwara still exists in the very heart of the Tarn Taran town. From Bhikhiwind town this sacred gurudwara is not located very far away.

Important players in Bhikhiwind’s Service Sector are banking sector, hospitality sector, healthcare and retail sector. There is absence of MNC’s or private companies in this town. Industrial sector and agricultural sector has an indirect influence over local economy of this town.

Safety and Security in BhikiwindCriminals have never
enjoyed any kind of free hand in this small town. We get clear
vindication of this fact through low crime rates that exist in this
border town. A huge credit for this stable law and order situation
surely and ought to go to Bhikhiwind’s local police station. This is
because without their continuous vigilance this town would not have
become as peaceful and stable as it has become today. The local police
station is very much centrally located and is therefore very easily
accessible to all its local people.

This improvement is most visible through increased number of auto rickshaws that are today plying across this town. Owing to which local commuters today can travel much more easily to different parts of the town. The town of Bhikhiwind is connected via road to almost all parts of Tarn Taran District. Besides, through road it is also very well connected to all neighboring districts like Amritsar and Kapurthala District. Bhikhiwind town though does not have a railway station of its own. Its local people have to depend on nearby railway stations like Patti Railway Station and Amritsar Railway Junction to travel via train to other parts of Punjab. Amongst these two stations Amritsar Railway Junction is one of the important junctions of Punjab state and hence is connected to many important cities across India.
