- If you want to have a tasty and free meal, you can head to Langar at Golden Temple. Don't go to posh restaurants here, rather try out the local dhabas.
- For non-vegetarians, Punjabi cuisine is (Read More)a delight with various varities of chicken.

Located in the state of Punjab, Amritsar is full of fun and frolic and has the country's best street food! The beautiful golden temple is worldwide famous and has a rich culture and history associate (Read More)d to it. Surrounded by pristine sarovar/water, the shrine looks beautiful when is lighted up in the evening. You can savour the holy langar that is served in the Golden temple for free of cost. A day's trip to Wagha Border is a must as it fills you up with the feelings of patriotism and makes you feel proud about your nation as you can have a close look at the soldiers marching and the India flag being raised high. The Jallianwala Bagh is at a walk-able distance from the Golden temple and the beautiful lawns and the bullet marks makes one nostalgic and solemn. You can also visit Gufa wala mandir to experience a mini Vaishno Devi in Punjab! For all the foodies out there, you should definitely visit Chungi, Makkhhan da dhaba, Kesar da dhaba and Bharawa da dhaba for lip smacking foods and lassis. Chungi's aloo naan are nation-wide famous and so are the famous jalebis and jaggery halwa. One can also find amazing street food including fried assortments and chaat. My favourite thing to do in Amritsar is shopping! You can find a wide variety of colourful, traditional juttis, suits, sarees, chikan work and phulkari dupattas. Amritsar is also famous for its masale and aam papad. It is ideal to visit the city in winter months as it's relatively cooler and the chilly weather would help you in enjoying the food and roaming around more.

The Jallianwala Bagh is a testament to the sacrifice of our Indian fore-generations. I have visited this place twice, and have left both times feeling deeply emotional and thankful. Every inch of the (Read More) garden is a reminder of the massacre of innocent lives. I remember the bullet holes in the brick walls and the Martyrs' Well having a deep impact on me, so much so that they are etched clearly in my brain even now. The property is well-maintained. Memorials and information boards are informative about the history of the place. Tour guides are also available.

I have visited the Golden Temple several times now, and each visit is as refreshing as the last. It is at a walking distance from the Jallianwala Bagh, so both places can be covered together. The mos (Read More)t important thing to keep in mind is that everybody is expected to keep their heads covered (with handkerchiefs or dupattas) at all times inside the premises of the gurudwara. The most cherished virtue in the gurudwara is the quality of "seva", which ranges from volunteering in the kitchen, washing utensils to sweeping. I have never partaken in this activity, but would someday like to do so. Visitors can eat the food served during "langar", which is free of charge. I once visited the Temple at 3 a.m. for the "prakash" ritual, when the Guru Granth Sahib is brought out in a decorated carriage to the sanctum. It was a rejuvenating experience.

One of the most beautiful attractions in the world, Harmandir Sahib Gurudwara or The Golden Temple is amazing both to watch and experience. Do eat and contribute with efforts at the Langar (meal room (Read More)). Cover your head with a scarf/handkerchief/turban before you enter temple premises.

Home to the Golden Temple, which is considered to be the holiest Sikh shrine, the city has a lot to offer to all kinds of visitors. Jallianwala Bagh would give you goosebumps as it would narrate the (Read More)story of the infamous Jallianwala Bagh massacre of 1919. Its proximity to Wagha border means that you would be able to nurture the nationalist in you. Apart from its historical value, Amritsar is the cultural and spiritual hub for not just Sikhs but all kinds of people. Amritsar is known for the shopping opportunities it offers- endless markets, beaming with energy and life, offering you all-things-Punjabi like juttis, phulkari dupattas, etc. The music, with dhol and nagadas, will not allow your feet to rest. If you?re a foodie, Amritsar definitely is the place for you as it is the land where Butter Chicken, Sarson ka saag and makai ki roti, tandoori roti, butter naan and more, originated. Anybody even slightly acquainted with Indian food knows how we love our extreme flavours and you can experience that on the streets of Amritsar that offer you endless chaats and other savouries.
