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.
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.
It is said that, your trip is incomplete if you have not visited the Wagha Border, and this place will surely excite your inner patriotism. The beating the retreat ceremony is held every day, and is one of the best experiences you will ever have. The other side troops perform their acts, and Indian troops perform theirs. The Indian Flag flying high will make you feel proud.
This temple is an important Hindu temple dedicated to goddess Durga along with the idols of Goddess Laxmi, and Lord Vishnu. The place has got a beautiful pond, and fountains with a misty breeze.
