Top Tourist Spots

The Golden Temple: The Golden Temple, a two-story edifice plated in actual gold and encircled by a 5.1-meter-deep manmade lake, is Amritsar’s undisputed top attraction. This renowned holy shrine is one of the most sacred places in the world for Sikhs, with many of them making pilgrimages to the temple at least once in their lives.

You must cover your hair, remove your shoes, and step through a tiny stream of running water to cleanse your feet before entering the Gurdwara complex, which houses the Golden Temple. Then, as devotees sing and soak in the water, you’ll go clockwise around the pool’s inlaid marble path.

Wagah Border Ceremony: A 31-kilometer trip west of Amritsar’s city center will take you to the Pakistani border, where a strange border-closing ceremony takes place every afternoon at twilight. The Beating Retreat Ceremony, which is full of pomp and circumstance, features goose-stepping guards from the Indian Border Security Force and Pakistan Rangers saluting each other, lowering and folding their flags, and locking the border gates.

Partition Museum: 1947 was a watershed moment in Indian history. It was not only the year that India got independence from the United Kingdom, but it was also the year that it was partitioned into two separate countries, India and Pakistan.

Tourists visiting Amritsar can learn about this pivotal time in history at the Partition Museum, the world’s only institution dedicated solely to Partition. It includes a harrowing collection of newspaper clippings, antique photographs, and oral histories from those who witnessed the bloodshed leading up to the two countries’ split and the subsequent resettling of refugees. You will gain a better knowledge of the root of rivalry between India and Pakistan as a result of this encounter.

Mandir Mata Lal Devi: The Mata Lal Devi Mandir is as strange as the Golden Temple is beautiful. According to legend, women who visit this Hindu shrine devoted to the female saint Lal Devi might increase their fertility. The labyrinthine attraction, however, resembles a funhouse to non-devotees.

You’ll go through the gaping jaws of funhouse-style animal carvings, see enormous wooden cobras, and crawl through a wet cave to the shrine of Lal Devi after wandering through dark, narrow corridors that lead to colorful rooms covered in mirrored mosaics.

Jallianwala Bagh: Another famous location in Amritsar is Jallianwala Bagh, which is located behind the Golden Temple. The public garden honors the estimated 1,500 individuals killed or injured in 1919 when British soldiers were ordered to fire on peaceful protesters demanding the release of imprisoned Indian Independence Movement leaders. Hundreds of victims hid behind the walls to avoid the shooting, and bullet holes can still be seen in the walls.

The Martyrs’ Gallery at the memorial site features images of key figures in Indian independence. You can also see an eternal flame and see a moving presentation about the victims.
