Khalsa College, Amritsar Overview

Khalsa College is a 124-year-old college in the city of Amritsar, making it a historic educational institution in India. The 300-acre campus has acquired the status of the highest Sikh institute for education with an enriching environment and a progressive outlook towards society. The architectural wonder is built on the same location that Guru Hargobind won his very first battle. Architecturally identical in nature, the Khalsa College in Amritsar and Lahore were constructed in the Indo-Saracenic style with influences of the traditional Indian and Mughal architecture. This historic institution was initially set up to conserve and promote the cultural heritage and language of Punjab. The aim was also to bring about social transformations by providing access to quality education. The college was designed by Bhai Ram Singh, who was the principal of Mayo Scool of Arts, Lahore.

Over the years Khalsa college has become Bollywood's favourite shooting destination, be it the famous court-room scene of Veer Zara, Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi, Junooniyat with Pulkit Samrat in the lead or Aishwarya Rai Bachchan's Sarbjit. Many filmmakers have replicated the architectural style of the college into studios as movie sets. Vistors who wish to see the college need to take prior permission from the authorities.
