Amritsar Travel Guide

The city of Amritsar is known for its unique blend of culture. Top places to visit in Amritsar draw travelers from all parts of the world. Grab the latest Amritsar map with all tourist attractions depicted to start holidays in Punjab. Here is some useful travel information about Amritsar below:

Culture of Amritsar

The city has a major population of Sikhs and Hindus. It is known as a main spiritual and cultural hub of Punjab. The dance form of Bhangra, popular all over the country and the world, is an emblematic feature of Amritsar. Giddha is another popular dance form among the Punjabi women here. Gatka is generally performed on religious events. Guru Nanak Jayanti celebrations at the Golden Temple are worth celebrating. Diwali, Holi, and Dusshera are also celebrated in Amritsar with great fervour.

Punjabi is the most widely spoken language in the city. However, Hindi and other North Indian languages are also understood by the locals. English is another common tongue in the city.

Climate of Amritsar

Amritsar has a semi-arid climate which means the city braves cold winters and hot summers. Amritsar witnesses extreme temperatures in the summer, between April and June. Daytime temperatures reach as high as 45°C in May. Monsoons bring a little relief as the rainfall helps the mercury fall. The monsoons start in mid-July and end in early October. The winter season in Amritsar, from November to March, is the best time to visit the city.

Food of Amritsar

Punjabis are well-known for their gastronomy delights and unique cuisine. Between Amritsari kulchas and a glass of lassi, the city has a delectable spread of Punjabi cuisine. Street-side vendors near tourist attractions serve “makke di roti with sarson da saag or maah ki dal.” For non-vegetarians with large appetite, the choices are many: chicken tikka, butter chicken masala, and mutton chaap. For dessert, Gajar ka halwa and lassi with Kesar on top can put any crème brûlée to shame.

Amritsari dhabas have carved a special place for themselves. Kesar Da Dhaba serves soul-greasing vegetarian food and its velvety Dal Fry is a must have. Bharawan Da Dhaba, Brother’s Dhaba, Pal Da Dhaba, and Beera Chicken House are packed to the grills and make up the city’s robust food culture.

Facts about Amritsar

It is the second largest city in Punjab.

The city was founded by Guru Ram Das, the fourth guru in Sikhism, in 1574.

Up to 1 lakh people dine at the free community kitchen or gurudwara langar at Harmandir Sahib or the Golden Temple.

    • Trip to Himachal

      ALL TRIP WAS GOOD EXPERIENCE , EXCEPT FOR FOOD SPECIALLY BREAKFAST AND DINNER NO VARIETY WAS PROVIDED SAME VEGITABLES WERE PROVIDED AT BOTH PLACES KATRA AND DALHOUSI. EVEN THE PAYMENT SYSTEM IS NOT GOOD OUR DRIVER WAS PANICKED DUE TO THAT AND OUR AMRITSAR TRIP WAS HALF COMPLETE. WE HAVE BEEN TOLD TO MAKE PAYMENT AT HOTELS IN CASH WHERE AS AS PER OUR PAYMENT SCHEDULE WE HAVE TO TRANSFER PAYMENT TO HIMACHAL HILL TRAVELS. REST THE STAFF WAS COOPERATIVE AND HELPFUL.

      The trip was perfect as per the iternary. Driver was very much supportive, flexible and friendly. Hotels in Amritsar and Himachal all were perfect but the best was in Dharamshala. I had a perfect holiday within these 6 days. Thank You Team for providing us with awesome experience.

    • Trip to Himachal

      The overall trip could have been better had the agency taken care of some small things. 1. At two of the booked hotels, Wistling Pine in Shimla and Savers Park in Amritsar were had been stopped for about 30 minutes or so when checking out stating that the payments were not made and that we had to pay them. It was very inconvenient. 2. We didn't get to see a few places promised in the final voucher. First, we got to Kullu in the evening and the driver stopped at a shop and said that if we wanted to buy clothes we had about 30 minutes. He said we will not visit Kullu again. So we didn't see Kullu at all. Second, we didn't visit Kasole at all. The driver said he will see if the roads to Kasole were open, he will take us. But he didn't take us there. I know for sure that the roads were open. I strongly believe he wanted to get to Dharamshala earlier so he skipped that. Third, the driver skipped all the sightseeing in Dalhousie saying that they are 50 to 60 km away so we cannot visit them. 3. When we asked for some changes in the hotel reservations, although the request being 3 days in advance, it was denied stating that the changes could not be made. 4. When we would asked the driver to take us to a near by mall or shopping, he declined the request stating the car has a gps and that hey is not allowed to. 5. At most of the hotels, we missed the breakfast because the driver wanted to leave early for the next destination.

    • Trip to Kashmir

      We booked Young Bombay Tours & Travel for our Amritsar and Jammu-Kashmir trip. The arrangements & hotel booking done were really great. As it was 11 days trip, the iteneary was very well planned & budgeted. Not a single day we felt hectic, it was organised in such a way. Commendable job done by Zaara & her team. All the drivers we met during our trip were wonderful people. They supported us in every way. Must mention Burhan bhai & Zahoor bhai whom we met for Kashmir journey. The places which we visited in Kashmir were so breath taking that it really cannot be mentioned in words. Thank you Young Bombay for such a beautiful & memorable trip. It is really difficult to list the best memories of the trip beacuse the complete trip itself was beautiful. The freezing temperature & the view of snow all over at Gulmarg was completely mesmerizing.

      Hotel where good except the fern hotel at amritsar. Taxi we're clean and good but drivers were in cooperative and didn't behaved well. As a tourist we go to travel and explore places but we are dissatisfied by the drivers services Dalhousie, khajjar and mcloedganj we're best places to be and see around.

    • Trip to Himachal

      We enjoyed our trip with Guruji though there were some communication barrier with our cap driver who can not speak English but things could be eventually solved out. We have faced unexpected problems during our visit to Manali; one member lost her purse and passport and the other got a stray dog bite while walking in downtown. But with our skilled and supportive driver despite limited English, my friend's passport could be located and eventually being picked up on the way of our next destination to Amritsar, thanks god. The member who got dog bite could reach to the public hospital in Manali for treatment. So thank you to Mr. Mukthiar, the driver, for the good job. I also like to thank you Avinash and Rehka for their support and fast responsive to our questions and needs from the beginning through our itinerary. I will definitely come back and choose Guruji Travels for our next trip.

    • Trip to Kashmir

      We were a group of 9 adults and 4 children. Classic Holidays Kashmir provided us a customized Itinerary for 7N and 8D to travel to Srinagar, Sonamarg, Gulmarg, Pahalgam, katra and Amritsar. Our agent Rabiya was very diligent and patient enough in preparing our itinerary. It was a memorable trip for all of us. Though we had a few hurdles in our travel during our trip due to the convoy, Rabiya helped in rescheduling the hotel bookings and our driver Thanveer was very friendly and cooperative and he guided us very well to reach our destination with a private van that we had to book on our own to reach Katra on time so that we did not miss our helicopter to Vaishnodevi Temple. He was helpful in getting a good guide in Gulmarg and also helped us in getting cabs in Sonamarg. The following are the reviews for the hotels that we stayed: Royal Milad , Srinagar - very good hotel and good service Montreal house boat- food was good, but cleanliness and hygiene was an issue Moon view, Pahalgam - Good hotel but service was not very satisfactory Hotel Dolphin,Katra - good hotel and good food Hotel Roopa International, Amritsar - leaking taps, dining hall was under construction, some sewage problem so the lobby area was stinking. Se we definitely recommend Classic Holidays Kashmir. Thanks to Rabiya and Thanveer.
