  • Majha désigne la partie centrale du Pundjab en Inde. Il se situe entre les rivières Beas et Ravi . Majha vient du mot manjhla et signifie « milieu ». Les six premiers Gurus du sikhisme, sauf le deuxième, sont nés dans cet espace. Les districts de Gurdaspur et Amritsar de l'Inde et celui de Lahore du Pakistan font partie de la zone dénommée Majha. Les montagnes Sivaliks et la rivière Chenab complètent le parallélogramme que forme cet endroit.Au niveau de l'agriculture, le climat est très favorable, et de ce fait la région était très peuplée dans le passé. Ceci a impliqué que de nombreuses batailles ont eu lieu pour sa possession. Lahore et Amritsar sont des villes qui ont été et qui sont toujours importantes pour les Sikhs sur le plan politique et religieux. Aujourd'hui 21 % de la population du Penjab se concentrent dans le Majha. Des industries se sont développées comme à Goindval et Batala. (fr)

The most populous city in the area is Lahore on the Pakistani side and Amritsar on the Indian side of the border. During the partition of India in 1947, the Majha region of Punjab was split between India and Pakistan when the Indian Punjab and Pakistani Punjab were formed. The Majha region of Indian State of Punjab covers the area between Beas and Ravi rivers, including the area on the north of Sutlej, after the confluence of Beas and Sutlej at Harike in Tarn Taran district, extending up to the Ravi River, which is all part of the Majha region in India. This region contains thirteen districts of the Pakistani province of Punjab, including the cities of Lahore, Faisalabad, Gujranwala, Gujrat, and Sialkot. Four districts of Indian state of Punjab – Amritsar, Tarn Taran, Gurdaspur, and Pathankot. The people of the Majha region have been historically known for their warrior-like nature. The Majha region is called the "Sword Arm of the Country", due to it contributing disproportionately to the Officer as well as Orderly ranks of the Armies of both India and Pakistan. The Sikh Empire was founded in the Majha region, and so the region is also sometimes referred to as "the cradle of the brave Sikhs." (en)
