The Golden Temple Amritsar India (Sri Harmandir Sahib Amritsar) has a unique Sikh architecture. Built at a level lower than the surrounding land level, The Gurudwara teaches the lesson of equalitarianism and humility. The four entrances of this holy shrine from all four directions, signify that people belonging to every walk of life are equally welcome.
Day 1: Arrival in Amritsar
Upon your arrival in Amritsar, you will meet our representative/driver at the airport who will take you to your pre booked hotel. Evening, enjoy full day excursion to the Wagah …the international border of India and Pakistan. Located at a distance of just 28 km from the main city of Amritsar, it is easily accessible by good motorable roads. Often called the “Berlin wall of Asia”, Wagah is a ceremonial border where each evening there is a retreat ceremony called ‘lowering of the flags’, which has been held since 1959. Hundreds of tourists flock to see this majestic changing of guards, accompanied by the hoisting and retreat of the respective national flags. At this time, there is an energetic parade by the Border Security Force (B.S.F) of India and the Pakistan Rangers soldiers. Troops of each country, in their colorful turbans, march amidst the rising nationalistic feeling in the ‘Beating the Retreat’ ceremony. Border officials from the two countries sometimes walk over to the offices on the other side for day-to-day affairs. The happenings at this border post have been a barometer of the India-Pakistan relations over the years. Return to hotel for overnight stay.
