About Amritsar
Amritsar is one of the most ancient and sacred cities of India. Abode of the famous Golden
Temple, it is the centre of Sikh history and culture. Amritsar is also a prime and popular pilgrim
destination in India.
Amritsar is situated in the Langar district of the state of Punjab in the northwestern part of India.
It lies at a distance of about 217 km from Chandigarh and 32 km from Lahore in Pakistan. The
best time to visit Amritsar is from October to March.
Tourists must visit Amritsar during the festival of Baisakhi. One of the most significant festivals
celebrated in Amritsar, Baisakhi a harvest festival and it is when the whole of Amritsar
celebrates the New Year. Locals, dressed in their finest, new clothes, eat, dance and make
merry. The day has an auspicious start as Sikhs first visit the gurudwara to offer their respects,
which is followed by a traditional lunch. Amritsar also has a procession that travels across the
Amritsar was once the gateway for people who travelled to India through overland route from
Central Asia. But nowadays, the ancient city of Amritsar is remembered mostly by its grim
political history. The tragic episode of the Jallianwala Bagh Massacre that took place on April
13, 1919, when India was under British Rule, changed the destiny of India. Amritsar also
witnessed Operation Blue Star in the year 1984 under the late Prime Minister of India, Indira
With rise in tourism and development of the hospitality industry, Amritsar witnessed rapid urban
growth. It became a prominent hub for commercial activities and medicare for North India.
Hari Mandir, or the Darbar Sahib, or the Golden Temple, is the chief tourist attraction of
Amritsar. The Golden Temple was founded by Guru Ramdas, who was the fourth Guru of the
Sikhs. The construction of the Golden Temple, however, was completed under the supervision
of Guru Arjan Dev, the successor of Guru Ramdas.
The Golden Temple is a large complex with many sections in it like Darshani Deori, Amrit
Sarovar, Harmandir Sahib, Akal Takht and Central Sikh Museum. The Central Sikh Museum
houses a huge collection of paintings that depicts the history and culture of the Sikhs.
Jallianwala Bagh Garden near the Golden Temple, which is the silent monument of the
massacre of 1919, is also a tourist spot. Other popular attractions of Amritsar are the Mata
Temple and the Summer Palace of Maharaja Ranjit Singh.
Various historical and religious sites in Amritsar make it a prime travel destination. There are
many popular Gurudwaras near Amritsar, which are Baba Bakala, Goindwal Sahib, Tarn Taran
and Baba Sahib. An outing to the Wagah checkpost on the Indo-Pakistan border has also
become a popular tourist place in Amritsar. A trip to the lush green countryside of Punjab can

Featured review about Amritsar
Amritsar - Truly The Golden Land
"My most recent trip to Amritsar will remain etched in my memory eternally. The name Amritsar,
is unmistakably the most apt for the place that is! Beyond doubt, a reservoir of amrit (holy pool
of nectar) this place breathes the essence of life and humanity. It would be unjust to term the
Golden Temple as an attraction. In fact, it seems more like a spiritual school where sincerity,
discipline and respect for individuals is the foremost learning and practice. The magnificent
Gurudwara is an architecture that can make you stand in awe for hours. Capturing the entire
campus from various angles for the avid shutterbug can be an endless ordeal, especially during
the night!
Clear set rules are there in place which you need to know before you visit the temple. There is a
structured and organized method to accommodate thousands of people, and there are kind and
concerned people around the place who help you to enter the temple without any hassle.
Climbing up to the rooftop at the domes of the Gurudwara and admiring the beauty is an
experience that is maybe even bleakly not possible with most of the other famous temples
around India. Just a few kilometers away from the Golden Temple is the Jallianwallah Bagh.
Though turned into a social park now, I felt a chill run down my spine while walking through the
place. So many years through the shuddering tale of the massacre, not much of an importance
is evident with the current generation. The light and sound show is aired every evening which
reiterates the bloody and heartrending tale. It should be a must on every Indian's list. There are
many other places to see such as the ceremony at the Wagah Border, The Durgiana Temple,
The Attari Railway Station and Ram Tirth with important pieces of history attached to them.
Wagah Border will interest particularly those who had a life once across the border.
Reminiscing the faded memories, people usually used to be here to meet their lost and loved
ones during the partition. Now, with change in times, the place and ceremony has turned into
more of an entertainment program. To get the wholesome experience of the ceremony - a
weekday visit and being well before time is what was suggested to us by one of the army
Page 3/15
personnel. The entire city is full of warmth and sociability; be it a small food stall or a plush
restaurant. Amritsar is a haven for foodies as it offers some of the most delectable and mouthwatering menus. From roasts to fish curries and fries; aaloo paranthas with makkhan; makki di
roti and sarson da saag to that refreshing huge glass of the lassi; Amritsar will not stop at giving
you options till you drop! Bharawan Da Dhaba, Makhan Fish and Chicken Store, Pehelwan Fish
Shop, Ashok Kulchewala or Kesar Da Dhaba are just a few places to name. The night market of
food stalls at Queen's Road is for the explorers and those who don't mind being away from the
fine dine and enjoy lip smacking street food! A great experience is to take the free meal at the
Golden Temple where discipline and no wastage is the motto. What can be assured here is that
the food prepared is absolutely pure, fresh and hygienic. A greater experience is if you get a
chance to serve to others as well!" - Shaoli Kapoor, Delhi, May 8, 2014
A trip to Harmandir Sahib!
"One of the most neatly maintained temples of India the Golden Temple is surrounded by a holy
pool of nectar. Just opposite the North Gate, starts the queue for the main shrine. I stood in the
queue with hands folded as a mark of reverence to the Almighty. And when I finally went in it
was pure bliss. I stood in a corner and prayed from a distance. There were steps to go up too
which I did and sat with other devotees with the prayer book and meditated. It was an
unforgettable experience.
The prasad that is distributed to all devotees on the way out of the main shrine is such a delight
to have, it is called suji. The same prasad is also available in a sealed packet from the prasad
distribution centre at a minimal cost. One can also buy the robe of honour as a mark of having
visited the incredibly beautiful Golden Temple.
“Mann Nar Hain, Mann Nar Hain, Mann Nar Hain Kaise Dilon Pe Aaye”
Kirtan or songs sung in the praise of the Lord has a special place in all religions. The Kirtans
sung at the Golden temple are sure to make a permanent place in the hearts of every visitor.
They are sung by trained artists who lend their voice at the service of the Almighty with finesse
and utmost devotion. A giant screen immediately translates the lines into English for the sake of
many who don't understand the dialect. The above lines, for example, say that mind is only
human and hence it is quite difficult to understand the sublimity of the Omnipresent, Omniscient
and Omnipotent God.
"Guru Ka Langar" was another amazing place in the Temple that every visitor would have a
reason to remember forever. It is where devotees are served food for free. The idea is anyone
who visits the temple is offered food as desired by the Almighty. As one walks in, the feet would
get washed by a steady stream of water. Walking ahead, a steady band of smiling volunteers
would welcome with dishes, bowls and spoons for the meal. There is a big hall upstairs where
people from different cross sections of the society sit together. As the rotis are served, hands
are to be kept at a convenient distance so that it could be accepted as a token of thankfulness
to the Almighty. Along with a sabji, payesh is also served. Nothing is to be wasted here as it
could be treated as disrespect. Once finished it has to be taken to the cleaning centre where
the dedicated volunteers are quite adept in their service to mankind." - Anindya Basu,

Punjab - Lighting up your life !!
"Amritsar is a fascinating destination because whether its the famed golden temple you are
visiting for spiritual needs or someone who wants to experience the Punjabi culture, a patriotic
Indian spending a few quiet moments at Jalianwalabagh or the not so quiet moments at the
Wagah border to the foodie who refuses to give up on the aalo parathas...there is something for
everyone in this little overgrown town in Punjab !
Food, sight-seeing and shopping: I'm not sure I can do justice to the kind of food available in
this city!! Even for a foodie like was overload of food....not complaining ...I loved it all
whether its the dhaba's offering you piping hot parathas, the roadside stalls with a variety of
kababs, the super large glass of lassi or the divine food at the gurudwara ...its a food lovers
paradise, you may though want to leave behind your idea of dieting, esp when you see them
dunk your food in more than generous portions of desi ghee/butter ( lassi included :)
Having said this, Kesar da Dhaba is a must do eating place - one of the oldest dhaba's serving
you delicious food at prices of the 1916's !!
Shopping can be tricky as they spot a tourist a mile away and plan to fleece you even before
you enter the shop !!
So whether its the traditional juttis or Punjabi salwar suit its priced at double its actual price ...
you may want to do a round of the local market to get an idea of the prices and do bargain ...its
worth the effort !
I found dry fruits available at reasonable prices and fresh from kabul (esp the almonds &
walnuts). Needless to say, I lugged home quite a bit !!
The sight seeing is fabulous ...the must see is the golden temple - do go back in the evening to
see the temple lit in the night ...its a divine experience and stay back to watch the night
ceremony. The Jalianwala bagh and the hyped but utterly enjoyable Wagah border experience
...there is some kick in watching our soldiers doing their best and watching our flag flutter in the
background ! Needless to say, its quite amusing to watch people from the other side peering
down the road to catch a glimpse of us Indians while we strain our necks to catch a glimpse of
our dear neighbors !
There are a few temples and a museum to see too.
Activities & things to do: Things to do would be to get a taxi to drive you to the outskirts of the
city to get the real feel of Punjab...I was looking at the cultural aspects of this place and found it
in the little villages...whether it was the trademark green fields or the yellow sarson ka phool
found in abundance. I also visited the 3 famous gurudwara's around amritsar .. Gurdwara Shri
Tarn Taran Sahib ( which has the largest sarovar or water pond) - its a beautiful place and
would mention this as a must visit too. Khadoor Sahib and Goindwal Sahib. The three places
are within 40 km radius of Amritsar.
Travel tips, How to reach, travel warnings etc: Amritsar has plenty of hotels and to suit all types
of pockets.
Local transport again is varied - shared autorickshaws, taxis and the man-pulled cycle
Page 5/15
rickshaws you can get around the city hassle free but watch the prices quoted by the taxi guys.
Its well connected from Delhi and has numerous trains heading out everyday and flights too.
Do check on the weather before leaving as it does experience extreme weather conditions.
Fairly safe, but you may want to keep a watch on your purse while in crowded markets." - Anita
Joseph, Bangalore, Mar 21, 2009
Amritsar - An amalgam of Serenity, and Partriotism
"Though similar to other dusty, crowded smaller cities, Amritsar distinguishes itself by way of 4
stunning and touching destinations - Golden temple complex, Durgiana Temple, Wagah border
and Jallianwala Bagh, making it a must-visit destination.
Food, sight-seeing and shopping: Serenity experienced when attending kirtans, people praying,
doing sewa, langars, attending ceremonies at HarMandir Sahib is unmatched.
Five minutes away, Jallianwala Bagh fills hearts with anger, bullet marks and blood stains still
visible on walls and the well .
32km. drive to Wagah border in the early evening to experience the full-blooded patriotism,
chanting of slogans , waving of National Flag, military customs and enthusiasm to vocally outdo
the pakistanis is must.
Also visit Ram Bagh gardens, and Durgiana Mandir.
For shopping, the locally made blankets, woollens, shawls, ladies suits, phulkari suits, jootis,
visit Katra Jaimal Singh.
Activities & things to do: Restricted mainly to attending kirtans, langar and the late night and
early morning ceremonies (when the original copy of Guru Granth Sahibji is taken from
Harmandir Sahib to Akal Takht and back) at Golden temple and visiting Wagah border,
Jallianwala Bagh, Durgiana Mandir and Ram Bagh.
The faithful can also take part in the 'sewa' at the Golden temple, where you can take part in the
various activities like helping in the langar, distributing the kadaah prashad etc.
Also go on an eating binge :) - the lassis, amritsari kulchas, and various local specialities.
'Bhai Kuldeep singh's' dhaba in front of Golden Temple is great for experiencing mouthwatering
Amritsari Kulchas.
Travel tips, How to reach, travel warnings etc: It is connected by regular and numerous trains
from Delhi, Mumbai, Chandigarh, Pathankot, Jammu, Kolkatta and other parts of the country as
well. Shatabadi trains and Shan-e-Punjab are the best trains from Delhi. Summers are very hot
while winters biting cold, so light cottons in summers and heavy woollens in winter.
Innumerable places to stay incl. Golden Temple.
While shopping, bargaining is a must :). Transport costs (of taxis etc.) are almost uniform,
though bargaining may help to save a few rupees each time :).
Regular free shuttle buses from Rly Station to Golden Temple ply for the devotees." HimanshuG, Delhi, May 30, 2006
History, religion and politics come together at Amritsar
Page 6/15
"Essentially three are three places of interest in and around Amritsar - The Golden Temple,
Jallianwalla Baug and the Wagah Border. Although there is little else to see or do, all three
places warrant travelling to Amritsar.
Food, sight-seeing and shopping: Shopping is limited to Sikh artifacts and religious ornaments,
mostly sold around the Golden Temple.
The Golden Temple is an absolutely must-see. The architecture and design of the temple and
the entire enclosure, the calm of the water body that surrounds it, the shining gold plating of the
temple, the live and soothing bhajans sung by devotees within the temple, the piety of people
Sikhs paying homage, everything adds up to a memorable experience.
Activities & things to do: Sightseeing only.
Jallianwalla Baug is an eerie reminder of the brutality of our freedom struggle. A short walk from
the Golden Temple, it is imperative one visit this landmark.
A 40 km drive to the Wagah border check post is worth a visit only if you go there in the evening
for the flag exchange between the 2 armies. Large crowds charged on nationalistic fervour,
nationalistic songs blaring on the microphone, soldiers in full military uniform and armed to the
teeth make this a must-visit as well.
Travel tips, How to reach, travel warnings etc: Regular trains from Delhi and Chandigarh. Good
roads connecting with Pathankhot, Chandigarh and Delhi.
Avoid summer. It will be very hot. Make a hotel booking in advance...during important festival
days, it might be tough to find a booking in a city filled with thousands of devotees." - Amit
