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.
