    Golden Temple

    The most sacred of Sikh shrines, the Golden Temple, is a major pilgrimage destination for devotees from around the world, as well as, an ever increasing popular tourist attraction. Construction of the Amrit Sarovar (pool of nectar) was initiated by Guru Amar Das, the third Guru, in 1570 and was completed by Guru Ram Das, the fourth Guru.

    The most sacred of Sikh shrines, the Golden Temple, is a major pilgrimage destination for devotees from around the world, as well as, an ever increasing popular tourist attraction. Construction of the Amrit Sarovar (pool of nectar) was initiated by Guru Amar Das, the third Guru, in 1570 and was completed by Guru Ram Das, the fourth Guru. His successor, Guru Arjan Dev began work on the building after inviting Mian Mir, the Sufi saint, to lay its foundation stone in 1588. Completed three years later, the Harimandar Sahib, or Darbar Sahib, as it is also known, required substantial restoration following its sacking by the 18th century Afghan invader, Ahmad Shah Abdali. It was Maharaja Ranjit Singh who oversaw the gilding of the shrine in the early 19th century, earning it its English moniker.In step with Sikhism's basic tenet of universal brotherhood and all-inclusive ethos, the Golden Temple is accessed from all directions. The main entrance is through an imposing clock tower, which also houses the Central Sikh Museum, and provides a stunning view of the shrine and its reflection in the Amrit Sarovar. Another entry is through the magnificent silver doors of the beautifully embellished Darshani Deori. It leads onto the causeway that connects the sanctum sanctorum with the Parikrama, the marbled surface surrounding the Sarovar.

    The lower facade of the Golden Temple is clad in marble, inlaid with precious and semi-precious coloured stones, using the pietra dura technique to create motifs. Within, the Guru Granth Sahib is enshrined on the ground floor, in a room embellished with splendid frescoes.

    The Parikrama is marked by a number of shrines and memorials of spiritual and historical importance. These include the Dukh Bhanjani Beri, the gilded chhatri of Ath-sath Tirath, a memorial to Baba Deep Singh and Gurdwara Lachi Ber. Close to the Darshani Deori lies the Beri Baba Buddha, another revered site. Baba Buddha lived for a 120 years and had the opportunity to serve five Gurus during his lifetime. He oversaw the construction work at the Amrit Sarovar, and this ancient beri (Zizyphus tree) marks the spot where Baba Buddha sat with his tools.

    Also part of the complex is the seat of the Sikh temporal authority, the Akal Takhat, the foundation of which was laid in 1606 by Guru Hargobind, who felt that the Sikh faith required a martial tenor. The ground floor of the Akal Takhat was ready by 1774 while the rest of the five-storied edifice was completed during the reign of Maharaja Ranjit Singh. The present building of the Takhat is of a more recent vintage as it was rebuilt following its destruction in 1983 during Operation Blue Star.

  • Attari Border

    Attari Border

    The border with Pakistan lies roughly 30kms from Amritsar at Attari on the Grand Trunk Road to Lahore and is one of the main access points overland to the neighbouring nation.

    The border with Pakistan lies roughly 30kms from Amritsar at Attari on the Grand Trunk Road to Lahore and is one of the main access points overland to the neighbouring nation. A flag-lowering ceremony is held here daily at sunset by both sides. And along with the interactive patriotic fiesta that precedes it, the ceremony is a huge attraction for visitors. Another attraction in close proximity is the complex housing the samadh of Sham Singh Attari. A celebrated General of the Sikh Empire, he fought valiantly and is known for his last stand at the Battle of Sabraon. The grounds include samadhs of his family members, a museum dedicated to the General and his descendants, and a water tank. A similar albeit larger tank can be seen a short distance away at Pul Kanjri. It makes for a good picnic spot a stone’s throw from the fenced border.

  • Gobindgarh Fort

    Gobindgarh Fort

    One of the most striking and historic edifices of Amritsar, it is the only surviving fort from the times of Maharaja Ranjit Singh. It has had a continuous historical narrative including events from the struggle for independence.

    One of the most striking and historic edifices of Amritsar, it is the only surviving fort from the times of Maharaja Ranjit Singh. It has had a continuous historical narrative including events from the struggle for independence. This historical layering is also visible in the fort''s distinct military architectural style and layout. It comprises of two concentric layers of fortified walls with bastions and is entered through two successive gateways. The inner enclosure comprises numerous buildings which have an obvious colonial look and feel about them.

    The foundation of the Gobindgarh Fort was laid in the mid 18th century by the leader of the Bhangi misl (clan). The imposing brick and lime structure, though locally known as the Bhangian Da Kila, derives its formal name from Guru Gobind Singh. Historically, possession of the fort was considered akin to possessing power over Punjab's religious and political centres. It fell into Maharaja Ranjit Singh's hands in the early 19th century during his expansionist missions. He further strengthened the walls of the fort and built a moat around it, adding several strong bastions to the structure. It is said to have housed the Maharaja's treasury, including the famed Kohinoor diamond within its walls.

    Legend has it that Ranjit Singh was coveting the legendary cannon Zamzama (which finds mention in Rudyard Kipling's Kim), reportedly fashioned for Ahmad Shah Abdali out of metal utensils looted from Lahore. It was appropriated by the Bhangis and housed within Gobindgarh fort. Following his annexation of Amritsar, the cannon were transported to Lahore by Maharaja Ranjit Singh for use in subsequent expeditions and today, it stands sentinel outside the Lahore Museum.

  • Rambagh Palace

    Rambagh Palace

    The Ram Bagh Palace is set amidst gardens modelled on the famed Shalimar Gardens of Lahore. Named in honour of Guru Ram Das, it boasts rare plants and trees, water channels, and a well-appointed statue of Maharaja Ranjit Singh seated on a horse.

    The Ram Bagh Palace is set amidst gardens modelled on the famed Shalimar Gardens of Lahore. Named in honour of Guru Ram Das, it boasts rare plants and trees, water channels, and a well-appointed statue of Maharaja Ranjit Singh seated on a horse. Amidst this peaceful verdure, Maharaja Ranjit Singh had himself built a double-storied luxurious summer palace, with remarkably cool underground apartments for use in hot heather, in the early Indo-Sarcanic style. A swimming pool for the ladies of the court was also constructed in close proximity to it. The palace grounds were accessed through four grand deoris (gateways) built in the Punjab architectural style marked by Rajasthani influences. Several rooms in the palace have decorative false ceilings made in the khatamband technique, a wood craft unique to Kashmir. The Palace is now the Maharaja Ranjit Singh Museum displaying a splendid exhibition from his life and expeditions, as well as, his personal sword, shield and replicas of a golden throne and the Kohinoor diamond. The museum is currently under restoration.

  • Sarai Amanat Khan

    Sarai Amanat Khan

    Sarai Amanat Khan was built by Persian calligrapher Amaanat Khan, who is also credited with inscribing verses from the Koran on the Taj Mahal. Two gateways, Lahori Darwaza and Dilli Darwaza, flank a large open courtyard that houses a mosque, a well and a makeshift stable. The most striking feature of this Mughal-era monument is the fantastic blue glazed tile-work that adorns its gates and mosque.

  • Maharajah Ranjit Singh Museum and Panorama

    Maharajah Ranjit Singh Museum and Panorama

    The Ram Bagh Palace was converted into a museum in 1977 and has an interesting collection of archival records from the court of Maharaja Ranjit Singh, including the attire worn by Sikh warriors, paintings, miniatures, coins, and weapons.

    The Ram Bagh Palace was converted into a museum in 1977 and has an interesting collection of archival records from the court of Maharaja Ranjit Singh, including the attire worn by Sikh warriors, paintings, miniatures, coins, and weapons. In close proximity of the museum lies the Maharaja Ranjit Singh Panorama, a permanent visual documentation of the Maharaja’s life. This remarkable feature is housed in a large two-storied circular building and features a magnificent painting depicting six of his major battles on the upper level. Fronted by three dimensional figures replicating the scenes, it is accompanied by a multimedia representation of the sights and sounds of war.

    Other attractions include life-size paintings, as well as dioramas (three-dimensional scenes) of the Maharaja’s early life and one particularly notable one of his court in Lahore. The latter is a likeness of a painting by the Astro-Hungarian artist, August Schoefft; also called ‘Court of Lahore’, it was completed it in 1852 and exhibited in Vienna for the first time in 1855.

    Timings: 10am-5pm (Tue-Fri), 10am-9pm (Sat-Sun) / Entry: Free / Closed: Monday & Public Holidays

  • Ram Tirath

    Ram Tirath

    Ram Tirath is believed to have been the ashram of Maharishi Valmiki, the composer of the epic Ramayana. Legend also has it that Lord Rama''s wife, Sita, gave birth to her twin sons, Luv and Kush, here. A hut that marks the site of their birth, and beautifully sculpted statues depicting scenes from the ancient Sanskrit epic are amongst the notable attractions. A four-day fair is held here every November.

  • Panj Sarovar Walk

    Panj Sarovar Walk

    Sikhism places equal emphasis on the importance of reading scriptures on your own, as it does on visiting a gurudwara. A majority of gurudwaras enclose sarovars or sacred pools where devotees are expected to bathe as a cleansing ritual.

    Sikhism places equal emphasis on the importance of reading scriptures on your own, as it does on visiting a gurudwara. A majority of gurudwaras enclose sarovars or sacred pools where devotees are expected to bathe as a cleansing ritual. Amritsar is home to over a dozen gurudwaras; of which, particular importance is attached to five sarovars located within the walled city. The Panj Sarovar Walk introduces the story of these five sarovars to visitors, and also provides insight into the evolution of Sikhism.

    Santokhsar Sarovar

    This is the first sarovar in the history of Sikhism. Situated near the Hall Gate of the walled city and approximately 700 metres from Sri Harmandir Sahib, the spot marks the place which the fourth Guru, Ram Das, identified for excavation. Legend has it that during the excavation, a yogi (saint) called Santokha was found meditating at the spot by the Guru. He is said to have died soon after telling Guru Ram Das that he had been meditating for a long time, awaiting salvation. The tank takes its name from him and was completed in 1643 by the fifth Guru, Arjan Dev.

    Bibeksar Sarovar

    Bibeksar SarovarThis sarovar is associated with the sixth Guru, Sri Hargobind, who had it dug and built under his direction. He used this spot to organize his followers along military lines following skirmishes with the Mughals, and also to provide them religious and spiritual guidance. As the Guru used his wisdom (bibek) to answer the questions of his followers, the sarovar came to be known as Bibeksar. The gurdwara we see here today was built by Maharaja Ranjit Singh in 1628. It is believed that anyone who bathed in the pool would receive the benefits of rational thinking (Bibek).

    Ramsar Sarovar

    Ramsar SarovarThough it is the smallest of the five sarovars, this site marks the exact location of the formal beginning of the Sikh scriptures, making it especially significant for Sikhs. Guru Arjun Dev, who was looking for a quiet spot away from the growing city of Amritsar, chose this site to give form to the Guru Granth Sahib. In 1602 to make the surroundings more agreeable, he had a small tank dug up and named it Ramsar after his father Guru Ram Das. Located near the Chhatwind Gate on the south western side of the walled city of Amritsar, it is believed that the Sukhmani Sahib (the "Psalm of Peace") was composed here by Guru Arjan Dev. Once he finished the compilation of the holy book in 1604, he is said to have carried it on his head to Sri Harmandir Sahib for the installation. This path was named Guru Granth Sahib Marg to mark the 400th anniversary of the installation of the Granth Sahib at the Golden Temple. Pilgrims often walk barefoot from Ramsar Sarovar to Amrit Sarovar to honour Guru Arjan Dev’s walk many centuries ago.

    Kaulsar Sarovar

    Kaulsar SarovarThis is the sarovar next to Gurdwara Mata Kaulan near the main Darbar Sahib at Harmandir Sahib. It is named after a Muslim lady, Bibi Kaulan, who was raised as the adopted daughter of the Qazi of Lahore. A highly spiritual woman, she was above religious divides and took refuge with the sixth Guru, Sri Hargobind, at Amritsar. Her samadh lies at the western end of the Kaulsar Sarovar. The significance of Gurdwara Mata Kaulan and Kaulsar sarovar can be judged from the fact that Guru Hargobind directed devotees to take a dip in Kaulsar before the Amrit sarovar at Harmandir Sahib.

    Amrit Sarovar

    Amrit SarovarThe foundation of Amrit sarovar was laid by Guru Ram Das on land purchased during the time of the third Guru, Amar Das. Its construction began on 6th November 1573 and was completed in 1577; followed by the original pond being reinforced by masonry in 1584. Initially it was built to hold rainwater, but it would dry up when rainfall was inadequate. It wasn’t till 1866, that the hansali was connected with the upper Bari Doab canal to ensure uninterrupted water supply. Other than regular draining and cleaning through kar sewa, sophisticated filtration systems, and a variety of fish species that consume algae, keep the water clean.

  • Heritage Walk

    Heritage Walk

    This two-hour guided tour conducted twice-daily showcases some of the richest architectural and traditional heritage from Amritsar’s layered past. It includes the numerous katras, akharas, bungas, havelis & hattis, expressions, all, of traditional town planning.

    This two-hour guided tour conducted twice-daily showcases some of the richest architectural and traditional heritage from Amritsar’s layered past. It includes the numerous katras, akharas, bungas, havelis & hattis, expressions, all, of traditional town planning. The walk promises to take you back in time as you witness traditional trades and crafts being practisedin the same place and in the same manner, as have been done for centuries. To participate, simply reach the take-off point at pre-designated times and purchase your ticket from the licensed guide on the spot.

    The tour commences from the historic Town Hall built by the British in 1866, and is today the centre of Amritsar’s local administration. During British rule, people gathered every evening to relax and enjoy the live band music played in its grounds. It goes past the Gurudwara Saragarhi, dedicated to the heroism of the twenty-one soldiers of the 36 Sikhs Battallion who lost their lives bravely defending their posts on September 12, 1897 in the North Western Frontier Provinces. The battle lasted over six hours and is considered by UNESCO as one of the eight most important demonstrations of collective bravery. Weaving its way through Qila Ahluwalia–a fort belonging to the Ahluwalia Misl replete with colonial-style architectural features–the walk brings you to the Jalebiwala Chowk. The chowk is home to a world famous jalebi shop that has been in operation since 1956 and is renowned for creating one of the best melt-in-your-mouth treats.

    It continues onwards through a warren of narrow, congested alleyways, home to the Sangalwala & Chitta Akharas, rest-a-whiles for sadhus and yogis to stay and practice religious ceremonies. Up ahead lies the Darshani Deori, marking the spot from where Guru Arjun Dev and Guru Hargobind would gaze out at an uninterrupted view of the Golden Temple. You will go past an ancient gnarled Banyan tree that has stood its ground, untouched, since the Gurus; revered by all as Baba Bohar, the surrounding buildings have come up around its many branches! Then comes the frescoed Thakurdwara Mandir, the Chowrasti Atari built by Guru Hargobind, and Amritsar’s first ever mint, the Taksal, showcasing some very fine albeit waning heritage. Finally, an ancient passage flanked by the Churi Bazaar leads you through an archway meant to connect mohallas and katras of yore before culminating at the Golden Temple gate.

  • Baba Bakala

    Baba Bakala

    Bakala is the town where Guru Tegh Bahadur grew up and spent over two decades meditating in its serene environs, until it was revealed that he was the ninth Guru, or the Baba (holy man) of Bakala. The gurdwara complex comprises an octagonal, eight-storied tower which marks the cell where Guru Tegh Bahadur used to meditate and the Darbar Sahib where he was anointed Guru.

  • Goindwal Sahib

    Goindwal Sahib

    Goindwal Sahib is considered the first Sikh pilgrimage site as it is here that Guru Amardas, the third Sikh Guru, lived and preached, and it is here that he introduced the idea of langar (community kitchen). He also built a baoli (step well) from which people of all castes were welcome to drink. It is believed that anyone who bathes here and recites the Japji on each of the step-well's 84 steps will attain deliverance from karmic life cycles. The gleaming white gurdwara stands adjacent to this well, and houses the room in which Guru Amardas once lived – and where, according to legend, he met Emperor Akbar after the ruler had partaken of langar.

  • Durgiana Temple

    Durgiana Temple

    The 16th century Durgiana Temple draws Hindu sages and scholars from all over the country as it is a well known repository of Hindu scriptures. Dedicated to goddess Durga, the temple is modelled on the Golden Temple with its main shrine rising.

    The 16th century Durgiana Temple draws Hindu sages and scholars from all over the country as it is a well known repository of Hindu scriptures. Dedicated to goddess Durga, the temple is modelled on the Golden Temple with its main shrine rising from the midst of a tank, its central dome covered with gold, and the rest of the structure clad in marble. Also known as the Lakshmi Narayan Temple, as a large section of it is dedicated to the Hindu deities Laxmi and Narayan, the intricate carvings of goddess Durga in her various incarnations, are particularly remarkable. The Durgiana temple was rebuilt in the 20th century, and its foundation stone was laid by the freedom fighter Pandit Madan Mohan Malviya, who was also an educationist and founded the Benaras Hindu University.

  • Jallianwala Bagh

    Jallianwala Bagh

    On 13 April 1919, a peaceful crowd of 2000 men, women and children had gathered in Jallianwala Bagh, a walled garden near the Golden Temple, to protest British rule.

    On 13 April 1919, a peaceful crowd of 2000 men, women and children had gathered in Jallianwala Bagh, a walled garden near the Golden Temple, to protest British rule. A group of British soldiers led by Brigadier-General Reginald Dyer opened unprovoked fire at the innocent crowd, relentlessly massacring the protestors even as the crowd dispersed in panic, many of them jumping into a well to escape the gunfire. Today, the furthest end of the Bagh is marked by a Martyrs’ Memorial built in the shape of an eternal flame. A section of the wall, pock-marked by bullets, as also the well, has been preserved as a reminder of the tragic event.
