Amritsar Tourism

The iconic city of Amritsar is in the north western state of Punjab in India. The city has rich mythological, historical and religious significance.Located at the heart of the city, the Golden Temple is the most the holiest shrine in Sikhism. Built with pure marble and gold and the glistening water of the tank ‘Amrit Sarovar’, the place gives of a sense of spirituality and calmness of mind. Bhagwan Valmiki Tirth Sthal and Durgiana temple are important Hindu religious sites in Amritsar.

28 kms from Amritsar is the Wagah Border which marks the international boundaries of India and Pakistan. People visiting this place witness the Beating Retreat Ceremony which is held every day before sunset. It is a worth-watching ceremony of closing the international gates and lowering the flags of both countries conducted by the Indian Border Security Force and Pakistan Rangers. Jallianwala Bagh is a public garden with memorial to commemorate the massacre of innocent lives by the British during India’s freedom struggle. The Guru Ke Mahal wasbuilt to house the Granth Sahibs and the gurus. Maharaja Ranjit Singh Museum is the former summer palace of the king, exhibiting the armours, paintings, coins and manuscripts of his time. The century old Khalsa College has helped to turn Amritsar into an educational hub. The lip-smacking foods of the ‘dhabas’ (road side eateries), age old market places and colourful festivals are some of the other reasons of making Amritsar a popular tourist destination. Amritsar is well connected by roads, railways and air with all major cities of the country.
