Tourist Places and Things to do in Amritsar

The first thing that comes to mind upon hearing of Amritsar is the magnificent Golden Temple. Other than this crown jewel, there are myriad other historical places such as Jallianwala Bagh and Durgiana Temple that can make a trip to Amritsar truly worthwhile. Attending the Beating Retreat and Change of Guard ceremony at Wagah Border is one of the top things to do in Amritsar. One can also explore the fine collection at Maharaja Ranjit Singh Museum, watch the 7D show at Gobindgarh Fort, indulge in some street shopping at Hall Bazaar, or take a heritage walk through the city’s old-world gems.

A trip to Amritsar will be incomplete without gorging on the food served at the gurudwara or having a hearty meal at the local restaurants and iconic eateries like Kesar Da Dhaba. The city’s nightlife has its own charm that can be best experienced at pubs like Underdoggs and Peddlers.

Even those looking to venture outside the city have no dearth of weekend getaways as there are lots of places to visit within a couple-of-hundred kilometres of the city. Nearby hill stations like Dalhousie and Dharamsala are a few of the popular tourist destinations for vacationing. Adventure seekers can visit Harike Wetlands for birdwatching or take a trekking trip to Kangra.
