A must visit place in Amritsar. A well maintained fort of Maharaja Ranjit Singh. The 7D show on the life of Maharaja Ranjit Singh's life is must watch.

Lazer show is a must
Feb 2021 • Solo
You would need a good 1 hour or so to cover the entire fort.

Charges for an all inclusive attraction is 400/- per head (actually 380 something but I can't recollect the amount).

There are tickets for lower denomination as well. Starting from 198/-.

Well it's mostly commercialized and sadly museum serves very little purpose.

What covers up is the 7D show and then laser show.

7D show starts only once they have 20-25 available audience for the show. It has no specific timing. I had to wait for just 5 min. Which is fairly decent wait time.

For laser show there are seats arranged and you can occupy them. But I took the marbel benches behind. Had no neighbours and could enjoy the show in comfort.

Here's my personal suggestion. If you do not know anything about Golden Temple, first visit the Gobindgarh fort and watch the 7D movie followed by the lazer show. Then come visit the Harmandir Sahib Gurudwara. It would make a lot of sense.

Btw, fort looks amazing in evening. And lazer show is on only post sunset, obviously!

I'm giving 2 star less as it's not disabled friendly. Certain sections had steps.

A good experience and insight into Punjab's history, tradition & cuisine
Jan 2021 • Family
The fort is colloquially called "Qila Gobindgarh". The fort was earlier occupied by Indian Army till 2006 and after that it has been handed over to the Punjab Government. The fort has a decent parking properly manned. The fort looks elegant by day and night. The basic entry ticket is Rs.40. Four type of paid activities are offered here Laser Show, 7-D Show ( Whispering Walls), Turban Museum & Fort Visit. The 7-D show & laser show is worth the bucks. Punjabi food is also available here at nominal rates. Horse & Camel ride is also offered. A must visit for people visiting Amritsar & especially first time visitors to Punjab

"A Must visit place - Do not miss the light and sound show"
Jan 2021
Great place to visit. Has many interesting activities amongst their famous 3D laser show on history of Punjab and that of Maharaja Ranjit Singh. There are 3 different museums inside the fort, a kid's 3D show and some food stalls outside which has OK food. Overall a must visit place to go in Amritsar.
