Amritsar – Always Once More

Amritsar a city known for its history and geography. Yes, the Jallianwala massacre by the British Govt took place here. This is a border town and shares its border with Pakistan – the famous Wagha Border.

The pious Golden Temple is the crown of the city which is also famous for its large markets and of-course mouth watering Punjabi food.

This was our 4th visit to the city.

We were pleasantly surprised to see the development around the  Golden Temple.   It ’s new, broad roads, well illuminated, townhall type area to roam around.

We also saw the new Partition Museum started in 2017 and Golden Temple museum inside the campus of Golden Temple.

Here is a pictorial glimpse.

This time we missed Wagha Border, but a visit to Amritsar cannot be complete without the visit to the electrifying Wagha Border. These pics from our previous visit in 2010.
