Trips to Amritsar

Amritsar travel

Amritsar, in Punjab, northern India was established in the 16th century by the Sikh guru, Ram Das. It is home to one of the world's holiest shrines, the Golden Temple, an architectural wonder carved from marble, gold and bronze that rises up from the earth. Its peaceful atmosphere is a million miles away from the fascinating, yet chaotic, streets that encircle this awe-inspiring complex of buildings. Despite the Golden Temple deservedly being the city's main attraction, Amritsar and the surrounding area also offers visitors a wealth of interesting historical sights, from ancient temples and palaces to shopping and restaurants serving authentic Punjabi food.

Things to do and places to see in Amritsar

Visitors on a trip to Amritsar will no doubt have one thing on their mind - the Golden Temple. But there is also much more to see and do. The city is made up of the old city and the new town. Within the old city, you'll find most of the historical sights and a rabbit warren of narrow streets lined with bazaars selling anything from daily essentials to souvenirs. In the modern side of town, upscale hotels and vast shopping malls vie for attention along wide traffic-laden boulevards. From Amritsar you can also access the changing of the guard at Wagah Border and the Harike Wetland.

When visiting Amritsar, be sure to:

  • Spend a day exploring one of the world's greatest monuments to religion, the Golden Temple
  • Eat and sleep with pilgrims in the Golden Temple complex
  • Engage with local worshippers and learn more about the Sikh way of life
  • Stroll through the beautifully landscaped gardens of Ram Bagh that surround the Summer Palace of Maharaja Ranjit Singh
  • Visit the Jallianwala Bagh memorial, site of the 1919 Amritsar massacre
  • Dine on Punjabi food in the Golden Temple or in one of the many bustling restaurants in the old town
  • Re-energise by sipping a creamy lassi
  • Witness the ancient India-Pakistan border closing ceremony at the Wagah Border
  • See migrating birds at the Harike Wetland
  • Go shopping for souvenirs in the colourful bazaars
