    Shopping and Dining in Amritsar
    Apart from a pilgrimage destination, Amritsar is a paradise for avid shoppers. It is home to both street markets that remind people of the olden days as well as humongous malls that make for a more contemporary experience. From colorful juttis and attire with intricate Phulkari work to jewelry and local snacks, the variety of goods available in the city is staggering. Guru Bazaar is renowned for its large number of shops dealing exclusively in locally made jewelry in gold and silver. Hall Bazaar is the place to shop for Phulkari fabrics, carpets and shawls with incredible embroidery, as well as lamps. Punjabi culture can be taken along by purchasing the famous Patiala salwar at Kapda Bazaar. Other popular places to shop in Amritsar are Old City Bazaar, Katra Jaimal Singh Market, Papad Warian Bazaar and Lawrence Road.

    Among the essential things to do in Amritsar is tasting the local dishes. Full of flavor and color, Punjabi cuisine is among the most popular in the country as well as overseas. Local meat preparations like tandoori chicken and butter chicken have already taken the global culinary scene by storm. Some of the most popular vegetarian dishes originating in Punjab are kadhai paneer, shahi paneer and dal makhani. However, a staple in the rural area around Amritsar is the humble, yet superb makke di roti and sarson da saag (maize flat bread with a preparation of mustard leaves). Another Punjabi essential is the lassi, which is an especially effective way to cool off during the summer season.

    Bharawan Da Dhaba (Town Hall), Pal Da Dhaba (Hathi Gate), Beera Chicken Corner (Sehaj Avenue), Ahuja Milk Bhandar (Dhab Khatikan), Kulcha Land (Ranjit Avenue) and Kesar Da Dhaba (Chowk Passion) are among the most popular places to eat in Amritsar.

    Upcoming Festivals and Events
    Everybody knows that Punjabis are the liveliest of people in the country, singing and dancing their heart out whenever they can. The first big opportunity for them to do so is Lohri, the harvest festival of the region, celebrated on January 13th. During the day, the city streets are at their most vibrant, with shops displaying their best collection of colorful ethnic attire. Popular Punjabi numbers and folk songs can be heard, and dances like Giddha and Bhangra seen in every nook and corner of Amritsar. After sunset, huge pyres are built on major road crossings, in colonies and in front of individual houses. Once they are lit, revelers sing and dance around the flame and throw several eatables in it as offering to the god. Special cultural shows are also organized at several spots to mark this event. People also fly kites, which is an important event during Lohri and Makar Sankranti (January 14th).

    How to Reach Amritsar
