Amritsar and Golden Temple Travel Guide Tips

The Golden Temple is one of the most revered religious sites in the country. Traditionally known as the Harmandir Sahib or the temple of Hari, the Supreme God, the temple gets its name from its gold plated structure. Most people take up Amritsar Tours just to visit this holy place.

The shrine is magnificent and exudes an air of spirituality. The holy Guru Granth Sahib is housed here. The pond inside the temple complex is also sacred. A dip in the pond is necessary before entering the temple. Golden Temple Tour is a must in a lifetime for everyone. Amritsar tours take you around other famous places in Amritsar too. Visit the historical Jallianwala Bagh and the beautiful Durgiana Temple in Amritsar too.


When to Visit Amritsar:
Amritsar has quite an extreme climate, with very hot summers and very cold winters. The best months to visit are Septmber October and November, and February and March. If you don't mind feeling a little chilly, December and January are also good times to visit. The temperature starts climbing from April, and the monsoon rains arrive in July.


Amritsar Festivals:
Most of the festivals that take place in Amritsar are religious in nature. Diwali, Holi, Lohri (bonfire harvest festival), and Vaisakhi (Punjab new year in April) are all celebrated there on a grand scale. Vaisakhi is particularly boisterous, with lots of bhangra dancing, folk music, and fairs. Major celebrations are organized at the Golden Temple on this occasion, and it becomes carnival like outside. There's also a street procession. Other festivals in Amritsar include Guru Nanak Jayanti in November, and the Ram Tirath Fair, also in November a fortnight after Diwali.


Around the Golden Temple:
  • The Akal Takht
  • Har Ki Pauri
  • Dukh Bhanjani Ber (Jujube Tree)
  • Thara Sahib
  • Ber Baba Budha Ji
  • Gurudwara Ilachi Ber

Amritsar is divided into old and new parts of the city. The Golden Temple is located in the old part, which is full of bazaars, only 15 minutes from the railway station. A free bus runs regularly (every 45 minutes) from the station to the Golden Temple. When you visit the Golden Temple, you can join the pilgrims for a free feed of common food from the kitchen, called "Guru Ka Langar".
