Day 02 : Amritsar Full Day City Tour

Today you will visit the Harmandir Sahib, famously known as the Golden Temple, the most sacred place for Sikhs in the world. The Gurudwara, or Gateway to the Guru, sits in a sacred pool of water, which is believed to wash away pain and grant health and happiness forever. Next, you will go to the historic Jallianwala Bagh. It is the site of a 1919 British massacre of local citizens. The gardens are verdant, well-manicured and blooming with color. Joggers and walkers mingle with the visitors. It’s hard to imagine that this beautiful place once was the scene of such a tragedy. Later, you will enjoy time in the old city bazaar. You will proceed to Qila Ahluwalia and Jalebiwala Chowk - home to some of the most famed jalebi (sweets) shops and other eateries in Amritsar. Admire the food presentations and local delicacies in this part of town. Following, we’ll wander through busy bazaars selling a mix of Fulkari textiles, colorful turbans, hair accessories, antiques, and more. Strolling through, we’ll soon reach the chitta akharas, 250-year-old hostels for spiritual seekers and saints.
