During the Anglo-Sikh Wars (1845-46 and 1848-49), it witnessed intense battles at Ferozeshah, Mudki and Sabraon that left a lasting impact on its historical landscape. The FirozShah Museum meticulously preserved the bravery of Sikh soldiers who fought in the Anglo-Sikh Wars, offering detailed insights into their valor and contributions to the region's history.

A War Memorial dedicated to the brave Indian army soldiers was constructed in 2006 at HUssainiwala.

Ferozepur Kite Festival 2024

Basant Panchami (देवानागरी: वास्तन पान्चमी) is a spring festival celebrated in Basant. This is also called Saraswati Pooja or Sarpanchi (Devankri: Shirpanagi) and the god of music, education, literature and art is considered in the Vedas. This popular festival related to spring season which is celebrated on Sudi Panj of Magh all over Punjab with great fanfare. Basant Panchami is estimated to be the beginning of spring season. Nowadays it is customary to wear yellow clothes on spring days. With the arrival of spring, new life pulsates throughout Punjab. Small fairs are held in the villages from place to place and people add to the gaiety of these fairs by blooming like mustard flowers. Ferozepur's Basant Panchami is particularly popular.
On the day of Basant Panchami, people express their hearts by flying kites. On that day, the entire sky is filled with colorful kites flying and dancing in the air. On this day, the sky looks like an immense stage, on which the hearts of Punjabis are filled with joy in the form of colorful kites. Basant Panchami is celebrated in many cities of Punjab. People wear yellow clothes. During these days the earth speaks and the vegetation takes on a new look… the buds bloom… the yellow-yellow mustard flowers in the fields present a mesmerizing sight… blooming flowers can be seen as far as the eye can see… GARDEN flowers bloom Vasant Panchami is also an important contribution from the cultural point of view. Children's and youth's desire for happiness is not maintained.
Basant Panchami is celebrated on 'Shukal Paksha Di Panchami' (5th day). The bright fortnight of the moon occurs in the month of 'Magh' in the Hindu calendar (which corresponds to the month of January-February in the English calendar). It marks the beginning of the spring season or Vasant Ritu in India.
