Discover Amritsar

Founded in 1577 by the fourth Sikh guru, Ram Das, Amritsar is home to Sikhism’s holiest shrine, the spectacular Golden Temple, one of India’s most serene and humbling sights. The same cannot be said for the hyperactive streets surrounding the temple.Amritsar is divided in two by a tangle of railway lines. The old city, containing the Golden Temple and other historic sights and bound by 12 medieval gates, is southeast of the railway lines. This is a fascinating area to explore, with a capillary network of narrow bazaars that seems to float between the centuries.

Golden Temple

The Harmandir Sahib, famous in the world as the Golden Temple, is Sikhism’s holiest shrine, visited by millions of pilgrims and tourists from all over the world. The temple's architecture is beautiful beyond imagination and the serenesarovar that surrounds the temple, the holy lake that is believed to consist of Amrit or holy water, adds to the glory of the temple complex. Harmandir Sahib also houses the Guru Granth Sahib, the holy text of Sikhism. Remember that while inside the temple, it is mandatory to cover your head at all times.

Dukh Bhanjani Ber Tree

Holding a spiritual importance in the lives of the devotees, the Dukh Bhanjani Ber Tree (a jujube tree) is one of the most visited and talked about scared places in Amritsar. Located in the Golden Temple Complex, the Dukh Bhanjani Ber Tree stands on the eastern side of the Amrit sarovar. Legend has it that Bibi Rajani’s husband was cured of leprosy by taking a dip in the pond near the tree. The tree was renamed as Dukh Bhanjini which literally translates to ‘eradicator of suffering’.

Tarn Taran Sahib

One of the most sacred places for the Sikh community, Tarn Taran Sahib is a city founded by the fifth Sikh guru, Shri Guru Arjan Dev. Historically and religiously important gurudwaras like Darbar Sahib Sri Guru Arjan Dev Ji and Gurudwara Guru Ka Khuh are located in Tarn Taran. Sri Darbar Sahib Tarn Taran has the largest holy water tank in the world.
