about amritsar

Amritsar is the nucleus of the Sikh religion and the lavish and legendary Golden Temple is Amritsar's main claim to fame. This dazzling Gurudwara sits in the midst of the holy Harmandir Sahib pool and Amritsar is named after this pool. The number of devotees of different faiths visiting this place is said to outnumber the number of people visiting Taj Mahal. Besides the Golden Temple, visitors also flock to the infamous Jallianwala Bagh, which represents one of the blackest episodes of British colonial rule.

Amritsar has been a popular bollywood destination for the setting of a cultural background of Punjab. Yash Chopra’s epic love story ‘Veer-Zara’ was shot at Wagah border and Khalsa college of Amritsar. The other two romances that were shot here were ‘Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi’ and ‘Gadar’. ‘Rang De Basanti’, a soul inspiring movie starring Aamir Khan also had few scenes shot at the Golden Temple, Jallianwalah Bagh, and Khalsa College of Amritsar.

The satiating food and generous dollops of legendary Punjabi hospitality further connive to cast a spell upon the visitor. Don’t forget to treat your taste buds to some of the world-famous dishes of Amritsar such as Amritsari Kulcha, Amritsari Fish, flavoured lassi, kulfi and last but not the least, Sarson ka saag and makki di roti. Also, dhabas are the USP of Amritsar and the city has a number of vegetarian and non-veg dishes, each serving delicious specialities. Some of the famous ones are Bhrawan da Dhaba, Kundan da Dhaba, Bubby Dhaba, Pal da Dhaba, Surjit da Dhaba and Kesar da Dhaba among others. Even though these dhabas may not score 100% when it comes to decor, ambiance, and service but you will simply love the food at these places.

The festive calendar of Amritsar remains packed with various celebrations throughout the year and it will be a good idea to visit the city during these festivities to enjoy the real flavour of Amritsar. Some prominent festivals of Amritsar are Basant Panchami, Ram Tirath Fair, Baisakhi and Lohri to name a few. All these festivals are celebrated with much pomp and grandeur and people from every nook and corner are part of these grand celebrations.
