Punjab Holiday Packages

Because of its proximity to the Pakistani border (Lahore is only 40 mi away), Amritsar has not seen the development, and attendant sprawl, that other North Indian towns have endured. The city is an important commercial hub and is an integral part of India tourist itinerary: much of the aromatic Basmati rice that's now an international staple is exported by Amritsar dealers, and dried fruits and woolens from hill regions as far away as Afghanistan are handled by wholesalers here. The robust rural culture of Punjab's farmlands permeates Amritsar, with tractors plying the city roads and peasants making their way through the market centers as well as the famous Sikh temple. Traffic and tumult are muted, so you can get around easily by cycle- or auto-rickshaw.

Tourism in Punjab

For Tourists ,The Golden Temple of the Sikhs is reason enough to come to Amritsar, and even if you think you've had enough of India's overwhelming religious pageantry you should not miss it. It resembles more a Mogul palace than a typical Indian temple, and its layout and ambience are a living lesson in the teachings of the Sikh religion, a syncretic movement combining Hinduism's bhakti (devotion to a personalized god) with Islam's monotheism and egalitarianism. Sikhism was founded by Guru Nanak around the turn of the 16th century, and developed under the gurus who succeeded him into a distinct new religion. Amritsar ( "Pool of Nectar" in Punjabi and Sanskrit) takes its name from an ancient sacred pool that Nanak is said to have preferred for his meditation and teaching.

 History of Punjab

The site was granted to the fourth guru, Ramdas, in 1577 by the great Mogul emperor Akbar, and gradually developed as a pilgrimage center. As the 1500s came to a close, songs by the Sikh gurus and selections from Hindu and Muslim poet-saints were canonized as the Adi Granth ("First Book") by the fifth guru, Arjan, at the same time as the great gurdwara (temple; "door to the guru") was being constructed here. In succeeding years, the temple and the sacred book together gained increasing importance in the Sikh faith. In 1699 the 10th guru, Gobind Singh, further consolidated the faith, establishing a distinctive physical appearance for his followers—most notably long hair kept in a turban for men, and braids for women. Singh marked this turning point by leading his followers to Amritsar from the Sikh gurdwara at Anandpur Sahib in the Punjab Hills. Upon his death in 1708, Singh's closest disciples announced his instruction that leadership of the Sikhs would henceforth be centered on the teachings of the sacred book (now called the Guru Granth Sahib) rather than a human guru. To this day, the life of the Golden Temple, as in all gurdwaras, revolves around the Guru Granth Sahib, beginning before dawn, when the book is taken out of a building called the Akal Takht and carried pro-, cession ally across the huge, white marble compound—across a cause-way on a square artificial pond—to Harmandir Sahib, the central temple whose gilded copper plating gives the complex its most commonly recognized name. The temple's day ends late in the evening, when the book is brought back to its resting place.

During the time of the gurus, the Sikhs' development as a separate community often brought them into conflict with other forces in Mogul India. In 1761, as the Mogul empire declined, the temple was sacked by the Afghan raider Ahmad Shah Durrani. (It was rebuilt three years later.) In 1802 the temple was covered in gilt copper by Maharaja Ran-jit Singh (1780-1839), whose rule extended as far as Kabul and Kashmir and marked the height of Sikh power. In 1984, the Indian Army's "Operation Bluestar" brought tanks into the complex in a disastrous four-day firefight with heavily armed Sikh separatists who had virtually taken over the complex. India's Prime Minister Indira Gandhi was assassinated about five months later by two of her Sikh bodyguards, in what was widely believed to be retribution for the Army attack on the temple. Amazingly, the temple now shows few signs of this tragic event, or of the decade of separatist violence and state repression that plagued Punjab afterwards. The grievances of the Sikh community have perhaps not all been resolved, but the horrible tenor of the dispute is a thing of the past, and Amritsar and Punjab are generally safe places to travel. Harmandir Sahib was not badly damaged in 1984, and the outlying buildings that were harmed have been restored. All day long, while a select group of singers, or ragis, broadcast hymns from the Guru Granth Sahib throughout the complex, pilgrims from rustic Punjabi towns and villages—India's hugely productive breadbasket—make their way around it, some performing seva (voluntary service) by cleaning the marble or completing other tasks. These worshipers are very welcoming to strangers, proud to show off the most sacred place in the Sikh religion. The dignity that pilgrims invest in the site, and the grandeur of its design, transcend the turmoil of its past.

Where to Stay in Punjab

Most hotels and the train station are near the British-era cantonment, and the Golden Temple is about a 15-minute ride away. You approach the temple through the Hall Bazaar, which leads to the clock tower gate. To symbolize the religion's egalitarian welcome to all castes, all Sikh gurdwaras have four entrances, but this is the main one. To the left of the stairway leading into the complex is a counter where visitors leave their shoes (many of the attendants here are volunteers, and their handling of others' shoes is another illustration of the Sikh doctrine of caste equality.) If you smoke, leave all tobacco products behind, as they're forbidden here. Pilgrims wash their feet at a spigot by the gate before entering the temple complex. Sikhs will already have their heads covered, with turbans for males and the chunni scarves worn by women; if you haven't brought a head covering; make use of the bin of colorful scarves by the stairs.
