One Day Amritsar Local Sightseeing Trip by Car Header

The city of the majestic Golden Temple, Amritsar attracts thousands of pilgrims, tourists and foodies every year.

The most recommended way to experience the spiritual and cultural centre of the Sikh religion is with our one day Amritsar local sightseeing tour by private car.

Amritsar is also known for the Jallianwala Bagh massacre that took place here and its proximity to Wagah Border. Despite seeing some of the worst tragedies in the recent decades, Amritsar today triumphs as a thriving city with commerce and tourism centres.

The region also lies in one of the most agriculturally productive belts of India. It is easily accessible for everyone since it is well connected to the most important cities in India.

Visiting this city during the festival of Baisakhi is a must because at this time, Amritsar showcases its finest food, clothes and traditions, making it ideal for a one day sightseeing tour.

The Golden Temple is actually just a small section of the massive complex of Harmandir Sahib. Amrit Sarovar is a revered tank located in the complex and its water is believed to have healing powers.

Then there is the Harmandir that leads to the Guru’s Bridge. This path symbolises the journey of the soul after death. The golden edifice is truly a sight of beauty and awe, and an embodiment of calmness and spirituality.

You must also visit the Sikh Museum which is located inside the main entrance of the clock tower. This museum displays the atrocities endured by the Sikhs at the hands of the Mughals, the British and the Indian Government of 1984.
