Amritsar is the holiest city for Sikhs not only in India but all over the world. The name of the city is derived from the holy pool that surrounds the famous Golden Temple of this city, which means “the holy pool of nectar”.

Reaching Amritsar is very convenient because it is one of the main cities in Punjab and is directly connected to the National Highway that connects it with other cities like Ambala, Chandigarh, Delhi and Patiala.

The airport in Amritsar is the Sri Guru Ram Das Jee International Airport that is 11km away from the main city and is frequented by domestic as well as international flights. One can also visit Amritsar via trains as the Amritsar Railway Station is connected to almost all major cities in the country including Kolkata, Mumbai, Chennai and Delhi.

A visit to the city of Amritsar is incomplete without a visit to the famous Golden Temple. This temple is also known as Harmandir Sahib. It was founded by the 4th Sikh Guru in 1604. Sikhs from all over the world visit the temple, as it is considered the ultimate pilgrimage destination for the community. Apart from this, the Jallianwala Bagh shrine is also a popular tourist attraction. One can also visit the Akal Takht.

The famous Wagah Border ceremony can also be witnessed when you are in Amritsar, as the border between India and Pakistan runs through the area. For animal lovers, the Harike Wetland Sanctuary is an exciting place to visit, while the Amritsar Heritage Walk will give you incredible insight into the colourful history of the city.

One of the most attractive features of the city is its food, with local stalls selling delicacies that are on par with any good restaurant in the country. The best time to visit Amritsar is between November and March when you can avoid the scorching summers and the wet monsoons.

A must visit a place once in a lifetime. Loved the feeling of Being Indian and seeing the handshake of Indian officer. Shouting the slogan with the top of the voice feels the best. Do not miss this part when on a trip to Amritsar.
Driving a bullet in Amritsar is a must-do thing. We don’t feel like we are visiting this city for the first time. A bullet gives the impression of living here as Punjabi are really obsessed about bullets and we had an amazing time roaming in the city and enjoying the local markets.
Having online tickets for this water park was really hassle-free as we were going there on Saturday and as my friend suggested we have to wait for hours in line to get the tickets but with online tickets, we entered inside the park in no time.
Our driver was waiting outside for us and he was really polite and helped us with luggage as well. He was friendly with my child as well and was really kind to her. We reached the hotel in 20 minutes only and it was a really comfortable and hassle-free drive.
Amritsar Village Stay was an amazing stay option available on Thrillophilia. It takes you to the traditional Punjabi Style living where you had a bed outside in the garden and enjoyed the big glass of lassi while gossiping and feeling relaxed in the fresh air.

During this Amritsar Walking Tour, we visited all the prominent places of Sikh community and learned a lot about battlefields. The tragedy happened there, the museum with the best architecture and golden temple all of which were really amazing places that hold the beauty of the city of Amritsar.
Amritsar Food Tour takes us to the most visited food street where the guide showed us the best of food shops and we eat one of the most famous dishes there which was lip-smacking. The first best food tour ever.
