Trip To Golden Temple

Amritsar is the cultural and spiritual centre of the Sikh Religion, since it is inextricably allied with the history of Sikhism. In spite of seeing the worst of situations, Amritsar yet arose like a phoenix through testing times.

Amritsar today is a flourishing city with active trade, tourism and commerce. One of the most agriculturally prolific cities in India, it is well connected via rail, road and airways with all major cities in the country.

Amritsar has all the makings of a versatile tourist destination. Its ancient legends, historical monuments, old bazaars, places of worship, colourful festivals and theatre traditions all serve as a window in to its robust past. It is home to the fabulous Golden Temple. This destination is also popular for the Jallianwala Bagh massacre and its proximity to Wagah Border.

With WaytoIndia’s Golden Temple trip, you get a chance to explore all these historic locations and much more. We can also customize your trip to Golden Temple from Delhi if required. View our comprehensive itinerary to know more.

Itinerary Details

Day by Day itineraryDay 1: Delhi - Amritsar

On Arrival at Amritsar airport or railway station, transfers to the hotel.

On reaching the hotel, check in and savour some delicious Punjabi cuisine. Take rest in the afternoon and in the evening, head out and take a trip to Golden Temple (open 03 a.m. – 10 p.m.).

Known to Sikhs as Harmandir Sahib (the Temple of God), the legendary Golden Temple is considered to be the holiest Gurdwara for Sikhs all over the world. It is also a symbol of human equality and brotherhood. The water tank reveredly called as Amrit Sarovar which is all around the main Gurudwara was excavated by the fourth Sikh guru, Ram Das, in the year 1577.

Anybody, irrespective of their cast, race or creed can seek religious fulfilment and spiritual solace without any hindrance.

It also represents the distinct identity, heritage and glory of the Sikhs. To pen-down the ideology, philosophy, the outer and inner beauty, as well as the historical legacy of Sri Harmandir Sahib is a portentous task. Just be certain to wash your hands and feet before entering the holy complex. Covering the head for both males and females is mandatory.

The Golden Temple is set amidst a pool of holy water. The focus of attention is the tank – the Amrit Sarovar that surrounds the gleaming central shrine. This is where Amritsar gets its name as well. Ringed by a marble walkway, the tank is said to have curative powers, and pilgrims come from across the world to bathe in its hallowed waters.If you wish, you can take a dip in the holy water but swimming or use of soaps and shampoos is strictly prohibited.

On this trip to Golden Temple, you can get breath-taking snapshots of the sunrise and sunset. Just remember that photography is allowed only in the outer premises and not inside the Gurdwara.

You will also get a glimpse of the Sikh temple tradition of offering daily Guru-Ka-Langar. It is a free, community meal, a concept that was coined in the 16th century. You will be thrilled to watch the community kitchen feed up to 10,000 people daily. Grab a meal here and learn about this Sikh code of equality and the practice of eating together.

Return to the hotel for dinner and spend the night at the hotel in Amritsar grabbing some good night’s sleep.

Day 2: Amritsar

Start the second day of your customized package of Golden Temple trip with Amristar sightseeing early with a healthy breakfast.

Then, set out to visit the Wagha Border. It is the border line running along the Grand Trunk Road between Amritsar in India’s Punjab and Punjab in Lahore, Pakistan.

Witness the Beating Retreat ceremony held by the Indian BSF and the Pakistani Rangers.The ceremony commences at 4:15 p.m. in winter and 5:15 p.m. in summer. It lasts for about 45 minutes. You need to arrive at least an hour prior to the beginning of the ceremony as not everyone can get in. No tickets are needed for the event.

This ceremony comprises of the closing of the international gates between both countries and lowering the flags. Every evening, just before the sunset there is a thirty minute display of military showmanship. The ceremony is utterly gripping, one which leaves you full of patriotism and pride.

While returning, drive up to the Shera Wali Gate and then take a rickshaw ride upto the Jallianwala Bagh (open 06.30 a.m. – 07.30 p.m.). It is a public garden which is also home to a memorial that commemorates the massacre of peaceful celebrators by the British armies on 13th April, 1961. Today, the place has been converted into a beautiful park and is superintended by the Jallianwala Bagh National memorial trust.

Next, visit the Hall Bazaar. It easily qualifies for being one of the busiest markets in the city of Amritsar. You can purchase electronic items, best quality books, ornaments, handicrafts and ready-made garments. Do not miss the view of its gigantic Mughal style gate studded with a giant clock with the caption "Amritsar - Sifti Da Ghar".

Spend the overnight at the hotel in Amritsar after a delicious meal.

Day 3: Amritsar - Delhi

Have a lip smacking breakfast on your last day of this trip to Golden Temple.

Check out from the hotel and meet our tour representative. Transfer to the airport or any other drop point will be arranged from where you begin the journey back to home. Your Golden Temple trip ends here.

  We both were a bit nervous at the thought of dealing with India direct but all was very well planned, Mohit saw us through the hole tour and it was faultless, the palaces were fantastic colonial throw backs in time, we had a fantastic time, thanks to our guide who never left us in any position that we felt uncomfortable.an unforgeable time was had by both of us, thank you.   Graham Leslie
  I planned a South India tour from Chennai to Kochi. I asked from many different travel companies but I got the best and cheapest offer by 'Way to India'. That was two weeks travel plan. We visited so many wonderful places and we got enough time for some individual program too. In the first week we visited the historical places like temples, museums and some beaches. In the second week we visited amazing natural attraction. All happened at exactly fixed itinerary. We traveled with a comfortable panoramic mini bus and the bus driver (Mr. Ram) was very kind and talented who could manage a good restaurant for dinner and lunch every day. The recommended hotels were correct and better than the chosen category. The connecting with 'Way to India' was a great experience for us and Mr Mohit was very pleasant and flexible for our request. All in all believe that this was the best choice for traveling. I'm sure we'll go back in India again because we found many kind friends at there and we would like to organize travel again by 'way to India'. thanks for all you have done for us thank you so much

  I am so delighted and grateful that I found Way to India. I was nervous about doing a trip by myself, as a young woman, in the Himalayas and it was important for me to find a trusted company to arrange my trip. I searched long and hard but once I spoke with Mohit at Way to India, I knew I found the perfect company. Every question I had or issue I needed help with was handled immediately, proficiently, with excellent service that really went above and beyond. All of the people connected with the company that I met or spoke with are extremely helpful, friendly and an absolute pleasure to deal with. The itinerary created was just perfectly tailored for what I wanted and was done with a lot of thought and care. They stayed connected with me through the entire trip to make sure everything was going well. Really, I did not have to worry or think about anything. I will use them every time I come back to India! I highly recommend to all my friends and family and to anyone who wants a memorable visit to India.   Aditi Banerjee
  Thanks to Waytoindia for 10 day in Rajasthan- Jaipur, Jodhpur, Jaisalmer, Udaipur, Mount Abu and Ahmedabad. Everything from pickup from Jaipur airport to drop at Ahmedabad airport was very smooth. The hotels booked in Jaipur and Udaipur were amazing. In Jaisalmer the camel ride and Jeep safari though a bit expensive was a good experience. The car and the driver for the entire 10 days was very good. Thanks to the driver Mahesh, who drove the 2 ladies for the entire 10 days safely and dropped us in time for the return flight to Bangalore.

Overall it was a memorable trip customized by Way2india for us. Thanks to Ankit.
