amritsar City Details

Home to the sacred Golden Temple Amritsar, literally meaning "holy pool of nectar" is the holy and edifying centre of the Sikh Religion. Founded in the year 1577 by the fourth Sikh Guru, Ram Das Ji, Amritsar beautifully encompasses the holiest shrine of Sikhism, the spectacular Golden Temple. It is also renowned as one of the country’s most serene and awe-inspiring sights. The city of Amritsar is divided in two parts through a strange interweave of railway lines: • The Old City • The New (Modern) City The old city houses the Golden Temple and other major historic sites. It is bordered by 12 medieval gates and makes for the southeast part of the railway lines. This is definitely an enthralling area of the city to explore. Tourists can enjoy striding their way to a capillary arrangement of narrow bazaars. These seem to be in existence for many centuries. The new of modern Amritsar lies conveniently towards the northern side of railway lines. It has been developed in jumbled fashion just about a dispersal of boulevards from the colonial era. Here, you can see the luminous malls and high-class hotels standing tall as a testament to the opulence of the city. The only problem one may face here is the hectic traffic. It is advisable to shuffle between the two cities on a rickshaw or an auto-rickshaw....
