Amritsar, Golden Temple and Gobindgarh Fort Tour Overview
Welcome to Amritsar!
The largest city in Punjab is undeniably famous for two things – The holiest shrine of Sikhism- the spectacular Golden Temple; and the only road-border crossing between India and Pakistan- The Wagah Border. It’s well worth spending some time exploring the sprawling temple and the intriguing ceremonies, but you don’t have to stop there, because this holy city is also a must-do street-food destination, has tons of history and has many bustling markets and culture! All in all, it is the quintessential PUNJAB!
