Amritsar, the cultural capital of Punjab, and the border city adjacent to Pakistan. This place has got its importance in terms of the culture as the famous Golden temple is located in the heart of the city, and the tactical importance as it has the Wagha Border, which is the gateway to India from Pakistan. Moreover, not just this, this place will also remind you of the freedom struggles our ancestors faced while dealing with the British.

Here is a list for you - Your quick guide to Amritsar

1. The Golden Temple

 

Undoubtedly, your day should start from here if you are visiting Amritsar. The Alak Takht is seated inside the Golden Temple, which is one of the 5 Takhts of the Sikh religion. The beautiful temple has its own pond which has got some fishes as well. You can have the famous Langer, and Prashadsweets offered at the end of your prayers at the temple, and listen to the enchanting. This is a very spiritual place for the Sikh and the Hindu people. My suggestion would be not to carry anything made of Leather like bags, belts, shoes etc. While visiting.

2. Jallianwala Bagh

 

This is the place of most importance in the Indian Culture and freedom struggle. I am sure you must have heard the story of the British General who passed orders to open fire during the Baisakhi festival celebrations being carried out at this venue in 1919. Hundreds died, and many jumped inside the “Martyr’s well’ to save their lives. The evidence of the massacre are still present inside the place, which is just at a walking distance from the Golden Temple. The incident of 1919 led to the Non-Cooperation movement, which ultimately led to the Freedom of India from the Bankrupt British empire in 1947.
