Hi guys, I hope you’ll have been enjoying my recent posts and continue to do so, because I have a lot that I want to share with you all.
Today, I will be writing about my travel experience in the city of – Amritsar.
As you all must already be knowing, Amritsar is a small little city in the Punjab state of India. The city is very well known for two of its famous sitings – The Golden Temple and the Wagah-Attari Border.
My visit to Amritsar was an extremely short and brief visit of just 1 night and 2 days.
I put myself up in a tiny 3-star hotel that was at a minimal distance of only 300 metres away from the Golden Temple.
The Hotel Regal was a hotel I chose due to its close proximity to the Temple . Also because the rooms were extremely cosy, neat and tidy.
I had an extremely pleasant stay, and I didn’t have any complaints, except for the hotel lying deep inside a narrow lane which made it a little tasking for cabs and cars to penetrate that region.
The Golden Temple Fun Fact: The Golden Temple is a structure that is made of Pure Gold !
So, I entered the Golden Temple, at around 4pm in the afternoon and ended up staying there till 9pm in the evening. From the moment I stepped inside the temple, I was taken forth by positive energies and felt much at ease.
I also was lucky enough to witness the temple, during all 3 light settings. What I must say is that it looked gorgeous and radiated aura at all times of the day.
After looking around the structure, I finally mustered up the courage to wait in the long tedious line, to actually enter the prestigious temple.
PRO TIP: I would suggest hydrating yourself and loading up on some food before standing in this line. It can take upto 2 hours to actually be inside the Golden Temple. (but the wait is absolutely worth it)
So, I did end up waiting in the crowded line for 2 hours, but to see The Golden Temple from the inside was a heart warming experience. The architecture, serenity, positivity was something that I brought back with me, in my treasure chest to Mumbai.
Important TIP: It is very important to remember, to cover your head with a dupatta/scarf at all times for religious reasons.
I really enjoyed my trip to The Golden Temple, Amritsar. If you stay in India, then one Indian wonder you must visit is this one !
