7 Tourist Places in Amritsar, Punjab

Although Amritsar is the holiest city for Sikh pilgrims, travelers of all faith and interests visit this beautiful place in Punjab. Popular places to visit in Amritsar include the Golden Temple, Akal Takht, Jallianwala Bagh, and Gobindgarh Fort. While the Old City to the south of Amritsar station is dotted with several historical structures and sights like the Golden Temple, the North side of Amritsar features upmarket restaurants, hotels, and spacey neighborhoods, and other shining signs of the city’s contemporary prosperity. Let’s take a closer look at all the points of interest in Amritsar:

Certainly a major highlight of all Amritsar sightseeing tours, the Golden Temple is the most significant religious site for the Sikhs and also one of the most spectacular temples in India. Also known as Shri Harmandir Sahib or Darbar Sahib, the Golden Temple is one of the top attractions in Amritsar. The temple complex is open every day from 6 am to 2 am, so visitors can enjoy its lovely reflections in Amrit Sarovar in the evening.

The two-storey structure in the middle of the sacred pool can be entered via a narrow bridge. Pilgrims can take a bath in the marked spots in the pool, before bowing their head in the temple. The Central Sikh Museum here displays a gallery of paintings illustrating stories of martyred Sikh leaders. The Golden Temple also has a famous dining hall (langar) serving free meals to all visitors round the clock.

On a trip to Amritsar, Jallianwala Bagh is one of the famous tourist attractions in Amritsar. Located five-minute walk from the Golden Temple, this 6.5-acre garden is the site of the infamous 1919 Amritsar massacre on the day of Baisakhi. To this day, visitors can see the bullet holes in the walls. One of the latest addition to Amritsar sightseeing places, Gobindgarh Fort lies in the heart of the city and was opened to public visitors in 2017.

After enjoying sightseeing in Amritsar, travelers can head 32 km west to the Wagah town. Every evening for two hours at the border gate, the Wagah border ceremony is performed by Indian Border Security Force (BSF) and the Pakistani Rangers. Pul Kanjri is a historical site about 35 km from Amritsar where structures like a mosque, temple, and a pond were built under the reign of Maharaja Ranjit Singh.

Mata Temple is a Hindu cave temple dedicated to the saint named Lal Devi. Durgiana Temple or Sitla Mandir is another place of worship near the Lohgarh gate. Built in the style of Golden Temple, it is also built in the middle of a medium-sized lake. Summer Palace of Maharaja Ranjit Singh in Ram Bagh Park, the Maharaja Ranjit Singh Panorama, Partition Museum, and Ram Tirth are other popular places to visit in Amritsar city.

    • Trip to Himachal

      Hotel Services was poor. I booked hotel with Heating. But when i checked in i was forced to but heater at extra cost. The same was included in our quote. Other than this hotel was good with beautiful view. Food was good. We had booked two innova cars. One driver was very rude and he started arguing with everything us. I payed extra for night depature from Manali. However cab driver stopped the car midway at punjab and he started sleeping there. We slept for about 4 hours in car irself. Then he dropped at hotel the final and he went off. He even took the other driver who was good along with him. My final drop was at airport as per the quote. I need to thank the travel agent here who arranged the alternate cab in short span of time and he dropped us at airport. Travel agent Mr Pawan was very good. He was so kind and generous that he always supported wherever we were stuck. And finally he arranged an alternate cab for dropping us at airport.

      A nice holiday to Manali... Transportation from Delhi was a little hectic... not a big problem though... The third day sightseeing was a disappointment... On reviewing now, it feels that we could have a better itinery if we had done some pre research online.. Travel agent services were good.. Hotel Snow country was fine..Cab driver was a nice Punjabi man.. went to his house in Punjab and had a cup of tea on our return to Delhi... Gulaba was the finest part of the trip.. Looking for more trips with travel triangle...

All the hotels were really great especially the Lotus inn river in Manali was amazing the View from our room was breath taking and the hotel staff was very polite, helpful. The food was best part especially the dinner is what we enjoyed the most . However the cake they served for our honeymoon special was crappy rest all was amazing. A special thank to our friendly guide / Driver /friend Balbir singh ji(8920522756). We enjoyed his company and made our travel real fun. Thank you Travel triangle for getting in touch with Shoes on loose, who made our honeymoon memorable.
