Home of the glorious Golden Temple, the iconic city of Amritsar, portrays the heroic character of Punjab. The second-largest city of the Indian state of Punjab, Amritsar is colloquially known as Ambarsar. Apart from the Golden Temple, Amritsar is known for its lip-smacking street food.
Amritsar is the spiritual and cultural centre of the Sikh Religion. Baisakhi festival brings out Amritsar's resplendent face with its finest food, clothes and merry-making. This place is also famous for its Jallianwala Bagh massacre and its proximity to Wagah Border. From Operation Blue Star in the Golden Temple to the tragedy of the Jallianwala Bagh massacre, Amritsar has seen the worst of situations and yet emerged like a phoenix through testing times. Amritsar today is a thriving city with active trade and tourism industries.
A day in this peaceful city starts with the spiritual prayers from Gurudwaras. The original name is first the ancient lake, then the temple complex, and later the surrounding city, meaning "pool of ambrosial nectar."
One of the most agriculturally productive cities of India, Amritsar is well connected with most of the important cities of India.
