Amritsar is a treasure trove of spiritual and architectural beauty. It is home to the holiest shrine of the Sikhs, the Golden Temple or Sri Harmandir Sahib as it is popularly known. With bullet marks still visible on the walls of the Jallianwala Bagh, the city is a poignant reminder of India’s freedom struggle. The Change of Guard ceremony performed every evening at the Wagah-Attari border by soldiers of the Indian and Pakistani army is another reason Amritsar is worth visiting.
