I visited here 3 time and every time it felt a new experience.. So much peace and relaxing Things to remember 1.must eat lunger(golden temple kitchen food) at least once ,it is too tasty. 2.u can easily find hotel nearby in 300-700 rs for non ac room, dont spent much 3.if u plan to go bagah border, dont give more then 150/person to agent
- 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 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 associated 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.
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 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.
I am at golden temple now and I would like to share my views . . .. try not to visit on Saturdays and Sundays ... today is Sunday and crowd is like . you have to wait for at least 2-4 hours to go inside the temple . .. outside is fine . . and one most important thing.... there is no proper line to visit inside.. .. everyone is pushing each other ... .. and in starting there is no different lines for women and men .... I came at 3 in the morning and still at 5.30 I am not able to visit the temple ... .. all persons are like jumping from one line to another.. .. and some sevadars are just so rude... .. my overall experience is not so good here .... this morning as still I am here .. hope for better things ahead .. no proper management for visiting inside the temple .. I may be wrong .. but I am sharing my experience . overall all things are good. I had langar yesterday night .. and it was awesome .. place is awesome . ... I sat outside .. yesterday and there is different kind of peace here .... hope it is beneficial for people who are thinking to visit golden temple
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). Cover your head with a scarf/handkerchief/turban before you enter temple premises.

How long will it take to reach Amritsar by car from Delhi ? And where can I find the best lassi in Amritsar ?
Amritsar to Delhi takes around 9 hours without halts. Expect a duration of 11-12 hours by road. Kesar da Dhaba and Bhrawaan da Dhaba have amazing lassi.
