Amritsar: The City of the Golden Temple

What’s not to love about this city named Amritsar! Whether it is the spectacular sight of the Golden Temple or the historical memorial of Jallianwala Bagh, whether it is the amazing chhole kulche that this city is so famous for or the narrow lanes and bylanes bustling with people, Amritsar has a unique charm and unceasing vibrancy to it that attracts visitors from all over the country.

Whenever we think of Amritsar, an image that automatically comes to mind is that of the magnificent Golden Temple, the holiest pilgrim of Sikhs. With its Golden dome and serene and tranquil environment, this temple is undoubtedly a must visit. A stone’s throw away from Golden Temple is the Jallianwala Bagh, the site where hundreds of innocent Indians were gunned down by the British Army. Then there is the Wagah Border, where soldiers of India and Pakistan march in perfect drill in a ceremony known as “Beating the Retreat” exhibiting patriotic emotions for their respective countries.

As for food options, it won’t be an exaggeration to say that it is the ultimate place to indulge in some serious paet pooja! From makki di roti and sarson da saag to kulchas stuffed with paneer, potatoes and other veggies, from chicken tikka to mutton chaap, from malaidaar lassi to faloode wale kulfi…..Amritsar has it all! This city is literally a heaven for foodies and if you are a sucker for authentic Punjabi flavors, this is the place to be!
