A visit to the holy city of Golden Temple (Harmandir Sahib)

Amritsar- where the sun rises over the golden temple!

Founded in 1577 by the fourth Sikh guru, Ram Das, Amritsar is home to Sikhism's holiest shrine, the spectacular Golden Temple, one of India's most serene and humbling sights.

Amritsar is an important city in the state of Punjab not only because of its rich Historic & Cultural background but also due to its key role   in economic & political yield for the state.

Amritsar is divided in two by a remarkable tangle of railway lines. The old city, containing the Golden Temple and other historic sights  bound by 12 medieval gates, is southeast of the railway lines. This is a fascinating area to explore, with a capillary network of narrow bazaars that seems to float between the centuries.

In 2016, Amritsar witnessed major infrastructural & restoration developments thereby allowing visitors to stay a day more in the city to explore more avenues apart from The Golden Temple, Wagah-Border, Eating Joints & key Shopping areas.
