Ghoraya tapestry depicts a scene from the town of Goraya in Jalandhar district and Phillaur Tehsil in the Indian state of Punjab. It lies between Phagwara and Ludhiana on G. T. Road NH-1, which connects Amritsar and Delhi. After their arrival in India, the people of Goraya (known as Manchester of Punjab, for no clear reason) of Jats founded another village on G.T, Road between Ludhiana and Jalandhar, and named it after old principal city in Central Asia as Goraya. These people are still residing in the same area. Goraya has several market places and shopping centres, including the Rurka road market and Rishi Bazar (Near Railway Crossing). The Ram Bazaar is the midpoint of the town, with many small but busy shops selling numerous articles including rice.
