What to See
It is surprisingly odd that people know more about the ‘Golden Temple’ than the city itself. However, besides the Golden Temple, the city also has other historical sites like the JalianwalaBagh. Unlike other famous historic places in India, this site does not portray any pleasant facts but is known for the most brutal death of thousands of Indians that occurred here during the time of India’s struggle for freedom against the British. The city is also known for the Wagah Border which is the sole open border crossing of India and Pakistan. The city also houses a number of Hindu temples, state museum and a fort.
Best Time to visit
The best time to visit Amritsar is indeed during the winter period of October to March. One can also travel during monsoon months when rains are receding during mid September. The summer temperatures touch upto 48 degree Celsius whereas winters are pleasant from late November upto late February.
