    What to Expect
    Start your tour with a hotel pickup and travel in tuk tuk to reach the starting point by 9am. Walk on the historic and spiritual streets of Amritsar with your local guide. Visit the Saragarhi Memorial Gurudwara, Learn about the Battle of Saragarhi that was fought between the British Indian Army and Afghan Orakzai tribesmen. Let your guide explain about the Battle of Saragarhi that has last gone down in history as one of the most fierce last-stands executed in battle. Stay here for around 40 minutes, including free time.

    Next walk the streets of Amritsar while your guide briefs you about the local culture of Amritsar. Enjoy the local street snacks like Jalebi’s, Amritsari Kulcha and lassi. Next visit the Jallianwala Bagh to witness the massacre created by General Dyer. Your stay at Jallianwala Bagh would be around 20 minutes. A free time of 10 minutes is given to explore the area.

    Now walk to your final destination, The Golden Temple. It is the holiest Gurudwara of Sikhism, located in the city of Amritsar. Amritsar (literally, the tank of nectar of immortality) was founded in 1577 by the fourth Sikh guru, Guru Ram Das. The present-day Gurudwara was rebuilt in 1764 by Jassa Singh Ahluwalia with the help of other Sikh Misls. In the early nineteenth century, Maharaja Ranjit Singh secured the Punjab region from outside attack and covered the upper floors of the Gurudwara with gold, which gives it its distinctive appearance and its English name. Your guide will give you more knowledge about Sikh religion, its history and people. Your stay at The Golden Temple is approximately 1 hour including free time.

    The tour ends at The Golden Temple around 12pm, after which you are free to explore the city on your own.
