Amritsar is a major city in the north-western state of Punjab, India. It's known for being the spiritual centre of Sikhism, a religion founded in the 15th century.

Visitors can participate in langar, the Sikh tradition of sharing a free meal in the temple complex. The city also has historical sites like Jallianwala Bagh, a public garden where a tragic massacre took place in 1919, and the Partition Museum, which explores the division of India and Pakistan in 1947. Amritsar is a good starting point to explore the surrounding area, known for its fertile farmlands and historic towns. The climate in Amritsar is subtropical with hot summers and mild winters.

Things to do in Amritsar

Discovering the many attractions of Amritsar can be quite a task, so we've narrowed down our top 3:

The Golden Temple

The holiest gurdwara (Sikh house of worship) in the world, the Golden Temple is a stunning sight to behold. The temple is covered in gold leaf and sits in the middle of a man-made pool, creating a peaceful and reflective atmosphere. Visitors can walk around the pool and even take a dip in the holy water.

Jallianwala Bagh

This public garden houses the Jallianwala Bagh Massacre Memorial, a sombre reminder of a dark time in Indian history. In 1919, British troops opened fire on a large crowd of unarmed Indian civilians who had gathered at the Bagh. The memorial includes a museum that tells the story of the massacre.

Wagah Border Ceremony

Every evening, there's a ceremonial retreat at the Wagah Border, which marks the border between India and Pakistan. The ceremony is a colourful and energetic display of patriotism, and it's a great way to experience the Punjabi culture.
