Amritsar Travel Guide

The state of Punjab, pride of India in terms of agriculture, its unique culture, industry and beautiful locations, is known for its religious places that are globally famous and visited by a considerable number of tourists all round the year. Even, these pilgrimage destinations are increasing the popularity graph of Punjab and making it an ever shinning star in the Indian tourism map. Amritsar is the most popular religious destination in the state of Punjab that is truly increasing the glory of religious tours in India.

What lures devotees and travellers towards the beautiful city is the Golden Temple or Swarna Mandir – a spiritual and cultural centre of the Sikh Religion that is explored by people who follow different religions. Being the unique Gurudwara (worship place), Golden Temple was initiated by famous religious personality named Guru Ramdas Ji – the fourth Sikh Guru. It was completed by his successor named Guru Arjun Dev Ji in the year of 1601.

Amritsar got its name from the pool around the Golden Temple that is known as the pool of Nector (in Hindi – Amrit Sarovar). The Golden Temple is made of gold that you can see here. Harmandir Sahib, Amrit Sarovar, Akal Takht, and the Central Sikh Museum are the wonders to explore in the famous Golden Temple. In addition to this famous Gurudwara, there are also some wonderful attractions in the city like Jaliawala Bagh, Mata Temple, Summer Palace of Maharaja of Ranjit Singh, Ram Tirtha and the Bagha Boarder at a few km distance from the city are some must see attractions to explore here.

The city is also famous for the real Punjabi food that always lures people from across the world. You will have plenty of options to enjoy the street food and delicious Punjabi food. Don’t worry about the accommodation options as there are numerous luxury hotels in the city offering you comfy accommodation.
