The largest city in India’s Punjab region, the holy city of Amritsar was founded in 1577 by Ram Das, the fourth Sikh Guru. Although a large, modern city at first glance, venture into the old town and you’ll feel like you’ve stepped back into a bygone age. At its heart is Sikhism holiest shrine, the Golden Temple, a place that offers a serene and peaceful respite from the city’s lively bustling streets. There are also historical gems and vibrant bazaars aplenty, making Amritsar’s narrow, old streets a delight to explore.
