Pul Kanjari is a small village situated 35kms away from Amritsar on Amritsar-Lahore
road, near the villages of Daoka and Dhanoa Kalan on the Wagha border.
It is one among the heritage sight built by Maharaja Ranjit Singh, where
he used to take rest while passing by along with his royal troop. During
his reign, Pul Kanjari was an important trading centre and the king used
to stay there for few days when travelling between Lahore and Amritsar.
The legend has it that the village was named after a pul (bridge) that
was built by the king for a dancer Moran. It is said that one day while
crossing the canal one of her shoes fell into the water which vexed her
a great deal and a bridge was constructed on her insistence. This fortress
also contains a bathing pool, a temple, a Gurudwara and a mosque which
were the secular concern of the Maharaja. The village has a monument built
in memory of the Jawans who lost their lives in the 1971 war with Pakistan
