The house where he stayed and made plans for the Govt. of Punjab has maintained the independence struggle as a museum. This city now has a Library and a college in the memory of Lala Lajpat Rai and a statue of Lala ji has been installed in the park opposite Municipal Council building.

Jagraon is an important religious center for the Sikhs, the Muslims as well as the Jain community. Gurudwara Nanaksar Sahib is one of the important places of worship for the Sikhs. Gurudwara Mehdiana Sahib is known for its unique depiction of scenes from Sikh history, especially those of so called "atrocities" committed on Sikhs by the Muslim rulers, in the form of life-sized statues. The Muslim places of worship include the famous 'Khan gah' and the mausoleum of Mai Jeena, where a three day annual fair, called 'Roshni Mela' is held every spring. ......................................
