Amritsar
Home to Sikhism's Holiest Shrine

The holy city of Amritsar is the proud owner of the Golden Temple. The city remains brimming with flamboyant cultures, jovial locals and spirituality sprinkled in the air which make Amritsar a must visit place in India.

The city was founded in 1577 by the fourth Guru Ram Das. Since then, Amritsar has transformed itself into an advanced metropolis; however, it still holds its traditional roots close to its heart. The locals of Amritsar are deeply devoted to their cultures and are considered as extremely welcoming.

Start your holidays to Amritsar by visiting the Golden Temple, a majestic Gurudwara. Devotees visit here in streams irrespective of their caste, creed, community, race, gender and ethnicity. Golden Temple is made of spectacular marble work engraved with flower and animal motifs. The second level of the Gurudwara has been capsuled in gold panels and a real gold dome acts as the main highlight of this religious spot. The devotees believe that the water of the Sarovar located here is blessed and filled with healing powers. Do visit Golden Temple after sunset to spend some time in the lap of spirituality.

For history lovers, Jallianwala Bagh is a must visit place in Amritsar. The history narrates the brutal story of Jallianwala Bagh where around 1,000 civilians were killed in 1919. The place still features the traces of history which bullet marks engraved in its walls. The martyr’s gallery located in the complex shows portraits of freedom fighters associated with this place.
