Amritsar is one of the largest cities of Punjab and is also bordered with Pakistan. Amritsar, literally meaning “holy pool of Nectar” is the spiritual and cultural centre of the Sikh religion.
The city was founded by the fourth Sikh guru in 1577. Amritsar is renowned world over for the Harmandir Sahib (Golden Temple). Harmandir Sahib (Golden Temple) is an important Sikh Shrine that attracts more visitors than TajMahal on weekdays alone.
From the Operation Blue Star in the Golden Temple to the tragedy of the JallianwalaBagh massacre, Amritsar has seen the worst of situations and yet emerged like a phoenix through testing times. Amritsar today is a thriving city with active trade and tourism industries and is one of the most agriculturally productive cities of India.
Amritsar is famous for Cuisine and Culture. The satiating food and generous dollops of legendary Punjabi hospitality further connive to cast a spell upon the visitor.
Another unique experience not to be missed while you are at Amritsar is the Ceremony with ceremonial closing of gates and lowering of flags of India and Pakistan. Both sides’ people visit to witness the ceremony with great patriotism.
