A holy city, Amritsar stands as the spiritual and cultural capital of Sikhism, and the location of the religion's most revered and holiest shrine.
The Partition Museum and Virasat-e-Khlasa will appeal to museum buffs. Durgiana Temple and Central Sikh Museum are good opportunities to explore the local culture. There's still lots to do: relax and rejuvenate at some of the best spas, indulge in some culinary diversions at a local gastronomic tour, learn about all things military at Punjab State War Heroes Memorial & Museum, and admire the natural beauty at Jallianwala Bagh.
