Amritsar India

Amritsar is a city in the northwestern Indian state of Punjab, known for its rich cultural and religious history. One of the main attractions of the city is the Golden Temple, also known as Sri Harmandir Sahib. It is considered the holiest Sikh gurdwara, or place of worship, and attracts millions of visitors each year. Visitors can take a dip in the temple's sacred pool, known as the Amrit Sarovar, and take part in the daily prayer rituals. Another important attraction is the Jallianwala Bagh, the site of a 1919 massacre where British troops killed hundreds of unarmed Indian demonstrators. The garden now serves as a memorial to those who died. Wagah Border is also a popular place to visit. It is the only road border crossing between India and Pakistan, and the flag lowering ceremony that takes place there every evening is a must-see event. Additionally, the city is also famous for its delicious Punjabi cuisine and many street food vendors can be found around the city.
