Amritsar

Home Icon 4 day Amritsar holiday extension from only £495pp

Located in the northern Indian state of Punjab, Amritsar was established in 1577 by the fourth Sikh guru, Ram Das. Home to the magnificent Golden Temple, Sikhism’s holiest shrine and a worthy rival to the Taj Mahal as India’s most spectacular monument, Amritsar offers a beautiful blend of culture, history and tradition.

This holiday extension is available to add to the end of our Golden Triangle & Ranthambore tour.

Amritsar itinerary

The fascinating city of Amritsar offers many highlights, including the Guard Retreat ceremony at the Wagah border and the spectacular Golden Temple. The 4-day holiday extension to Amritsar is the perfect finale to your Golden Triangle & Ranthambore tour.

4-day Amritsar holiday extension, from only £495pp

  • Day 1 Amritsar, 2 nights
  • Day 2 Amritsar
  • Day 3 Delhi, Overnight

Day 1: Amritsar, 2 nights

We bid farewell to our fellow travelling companions on Day 10 of The Golden Triangle & Ranthambore tour, departing Jaipur in the early evening on our flight to Amritsar. Upon arrival, we transfer to our hotel, the impressive Radisson Blu Amritsar, which will be our home for the next two nights.

 

Included meals: Breakfast and dinner

 

Day 2: Amritsar

After breakfast, we begin our sightseeing tour with a visit to the striking Golden Temple in Jallianwala Bagh. We continue to the Partition Museum, a world first ‘people’ museum that tells the stories of millions of people affected during the partition of 1947. The afternoon is reserved for a very special journey to Wagah border, to witness the inimitable Guard Retreat ceremony. This daily ‘beating retreat’ ceremony attracts crowds from both the sides of the India-Pakistan border, and is characterised by elaborate and rapid dance-like manoeuvres.

Later this evening we’ll see the breath-taking Golden Temple at night, when numerous lights illuminate its beauty, and witness the sacred and much revered Palki Sahib ceremony.

This morning we say goodbye to the delights of India and transfer to Delhi Airport, boarding our Etihad Airways flight back to the UK via Abu Dhabi.
