Amritsar holidays

Amritsar, in northwest India, is a vibrant yet relaxed and friendly city, full of well-stocked bazaars, mosques, and temples of the Sikh and Hindu religions. It is most famous for the spectacular Golden Temple, the holiest shrine of the Sikh religion, whose golden exterior shimmers in a pool of sacred water. Sacked by the Afghans in 1761, the shrine was rebuilt by the Sikhs’ greatest secular leader, Maharajah Ranjit Singh, who donated the gold top for which the temple is now renowned.
