Golden Temple Amritsar

  • Darshan to the Golden Temple: Sri Harmandir Sahib, popularly known as the “Golden Temple” is the holiest Gurudwara located in the heart of Amritsar, is a home to the ‘Akal Takht’ – seat of the God’s contemporary authority. Women and men from all religions are allowed to worship the God and take a dip in holy water. The English name of the temple is derived from the fact that the upper floors of the temple are made of gold.

  • Discovering Amritsar: Besides the ‘must to visit’ Golden temple, there are many places to explore in Amritsar. Jallianwala Bagh, close to the Golden temple, is a public garden that does not have a very pleasant memory but is a place of National importance. The place commemorates the sacrifices made by the Indians to seek freedom and the brutalities of the British forces. Other places of historical and religious interests are the Durgiana Temple, Ram Bagh and Ranjit Singh Museum. Take a stroll to the Amritsar bazaar where you can find clothes, footwear and other handicrafts reflecting the real and actual Punjabi culture.

Places to visit in Chandigarh

  • Clean and Green Chandigarh: Punjab tour is incomplete without a trip to Chandigarh. Chandigarh has a number of awe-striking places like the Rock Garden which is simply built from the industrial and home waste products, Rose Garden a home to more than 50000 species of roses that is a charm for the eyes of the sight seer, Sukhna Lake – a reservoir created by damming the stream of the Sukhna stream, situated at the foothills of the Shivalik hills and the Himalayas.
