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.
Kick off your visit on the 9th (Fri): take in the spiritual surroundings of Harmandir Sahib.

Plan my Amritsar trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Bengaluru to Amritsar is an approximately 5.5-hour flight. You can also drive; or take a bus. Plan for a bit warmer temperatures traveling from Bengaluru in August, with highs in Amritsar at 39°C and lows at 29°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 10th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel to Katra.
