The multi-cultural facets of Punjab are perfectly reflected in the tourist attraction in Bathinda called Pir Baba Haji Rattan Mosque. People from all religions, especially the Sikhs visit this mausoleum to get blessings from the holy Pir Baba. Baba Haji Rattan was sent to the holy city of Mecca as an Ambassador of India with the permission of Raja Bhoj. While he was returning back from his holy visit, Baba Haji Rattan decided to meditate in Bathinda and this is where this holy mosque is situated. A Gurudwara is also constructed beside the mosque sharing the same wall which shows the religious harmony here.
