Reasons to Book Cheap Amritsar Flights
Amritsar (or ‘a holy pool of elixir’) is a historic city in the Indian state of Punjab. Founded in 16th century by the fourth Sikh Guru Ram Das, this city offers a bittersweet experience that first relates to a humbling experience at the Golden Temple (which is the religious epicenter of Sikhism and attracts millions of visitors every year) and is then brutally contrasted by the haunting memory of a cold-blooded public massacre that happened a hundred years ago.Shri Harmindir Sahib or the Golden Temple
The Golden Temple is the holiest Gurdwara of Sikhism and is home to the Akal Takht (the throne of the timeless one or the God) and the Adi Granth (the holy scripture of Sikhism). Its four entrances symbolize the non-sectarian universality of the religion. Over 100,000 people visit the holy shrine daily for worship and to render free community services, especially for the meal (Langar). This humanitarian service is regardless of any social, religious, or economic distinctions.Mata Temple or Sheesh Mahal or Lal Devi
Mata Temple is a Hindu cave temple devoted to the female saint Lal Devi and is regarded as a holy place where women expecting or desiring progeny come to seek divine blessings. The circular path to the main temple has a number of tunnels and caves with ankle-deep water.Jallianwala Bagh
Jallianwala Bagh is where the horrific Amritsar massacre took place on a Baisakhi morning in 1919. The British General Dyer had ordered indiscriminate firing at an unarmed and unassuming crowd, thereby killing 1579 people in ten minutes. Those bullet holes are still visible on the walls here.
