Day 2

Amritsar is one of Punjab’s principal cities and is renowned for it’s world famous Golden Temple, the seat of Sikh religion built by Maharaja Ranjit Singh in 1803. The religion’s adherents don’t cut their hair. The men are easily identified by their turbans, beards and silver bracelets; the women by their salwaar kameez, a dress-and pants combination that has become popular through India.

This morning enjoy a sightseeing tour of the historic Amritsar, including the Golden Temple and Jallianwala Bagh. Amritsar’s main attraction - the beautiful Golden Temple, is made of white marble, bronze and gold leaf. To enter the temple, you must don a traditional headscarf, wade through a shallow pool (a purification ritual) and merge with the mass of bodies that circle the embankment around the holy structure.

The lower half of the Golden Temple is covered with marble and the upper with copper, overlaid with pure gold leaf, thus the name “The Golden Temple”. The Golden Temple has four entrances and the walls are inlaid with semi-precious stones in floral patterns, frescoes and glasswork.

Situated on the northwestern border of India, the city is also gateway for the travellers on the overland route through Pakistan. The Jallianwala Bagh is a particularly sacred place for all Indians today, as it is associated with a poignant episode in India’s freedom struggle. Besides a thriving industry, Punjab is also known for handicrafts and handlooms. Rest of the day is at leisure.

Wagah Border - pomp & performance

Enjoy a free morning to relax or explore Amritsar independently. This afternoon travel approximately 28km to Wagah, which is the only border crossing between India and Pakistan.

The changing of the guards and the ceremonial lowering of the flags ceremony is carried out with great pomp.
