A Week-end in Amritsar
The beautiful Golden Temple of Amritsar.
I had always wanted to visit the beautiful Golden Temple of Amritsar! So when I planned my trip to New Delhi, I decided I wanted to visit Amritsar. I chose a great photo of the temple on google and set it as my Desktop wall paper. For the next 7 weeks or so, I could already picture myself there!
After a 6-hours train journey from Delhi, we reached Amritsar by night. A car picked us up and we dropped our tired and sweaty bodies in a comfortable bed at the Best Western Merrion (the best you could find in Amritsar).
If you are visiting the Golden Temple, you will have to wake up early! Thousands and thousands of visitors go there every day! Also, it is worth mentioning, if you are a woman, don't forget to bring a scarf to cover your head while in the temple.
And while you are in Amritsar, hire a driver and go to Wagah Border, the India/Pakistan border. It is a show you must not miss! Everyday they open the border for just a few minutes and do a "parade fight"! The crowd goes crazy, the music is way too loud, but the whole vibe is hysterical!
So here are some shots! Enjoy!
