Faridkot is a town in Punjab state of India, in Faridkot District. It has been named after the great Sufi Saint Baba Sheik Farid Shakarganj, whose verses are mentioned in Guru Granth the holy book of Sikh religion. Previously it was called Mokhalpur. The ruling dynasty of Faridkot claimed descent from Jaisal, who founded Jaisalmer in Rajasthan in 1156. The town was founded in the 16th century by his descendant Bhallan of the Burai Jats.

Faridkot experiences a boom with day tourists, owing to the clear air, town character with rich culture, high quality of life and conspicuously original history. The picturesque scenery, the majesty of nature, the slow pace of life, and the welcoming nature of its people also combine to make this region one of the most important tourist attractions in India.
