The city of Amritsar has a very rich heritage. The Golden Temple is the cradle of Amritsar with the city growing around it nurtured by its divine sanctity. It is one of the most sacred religious sites in India not only for Sikhs but also people from all religious backgrounds.
Amritsar, literally a Pool of Nectar, derives its name from Amrit Sarovar, the holy tank that surrounds the fabulous Golden Temple. It is now the Gateway to Punjab and North India. Amritsar partially shares the northwest borderlands between India and Pakistan at Wagah. The Amritsar that greets visitors today is a bustling, busy city with a distinct ‘frontier’ atmosphere, nestling as it does within breathing distance of the Indo-Pakistan border.
