Amritsar

Historically known as Ramdaspur, Amritsar is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Punjab. It is every year visited by a large number of tourists from all around the world. Being home to the world-popular Golden temple or the Harmandir Sahib, it is one of the spiritual centres of the followers of the Sikh religion. This Sikh shrine attracts more visitors than UNESCO World Heritage Site-the Taj Mahal with more than 100,000 visitors during weekdays alone (Source: Wikipedia). This vivacious and bustling city is also known for historical importance. This multi-cultural city is a must-visit during weekends, if you stay in Delhi. Amritsar is quite popular for its food such as Amritsart Kulche and chole, Kulfi and lassi and colourful markets selling some amazing stuff including traditional Juttis, parandis, phulkari dupattas and more. Visiting Amritsar and its nearby villages is a real cultural delight.
