Book flights from Boston to Amritsar with Qatar Airways
Arriving in Amritsar
A spiritual and cultural centre, Amritsar is a beautiful mix of glittering temples, languid lagoons and a rich, vibrant city full of bustling markets and a thriving commercial centre. Fly to Amritsar with Qatar Airways and you’ll discover a destination that’s well worth a visit. The best time of the year to visit is during the months of October and March, when the climate is particularly pleasant.
The people of Amritsar are incredibly friendly, and you’ll receive a warm welcome wherever you go. However, it is important to remember that Amritsar is an important pilgrimage destination for millions of Sikhs, so when you visit the Golden Temple you will need to show the appropriate respect with regards to dress and behaviour.
The Golden Temple is without doubt the very heart of the city, and its gleaming walls and ornate architecture are truly breathtaking in the sunlight. What is also noticeable is that pilgrims are genuinely excited to be here, and are happy to tell interested visitors all about the temple and its history.
A five-minute walk from the throngs at the Golden Temple will bring you to the serene tranquility of the Jallianwala Bagh garden. In the Ram Bagh Park you’ll find the Summer Palace of Maharaja Ranjit Singh, a stunning complex that now houses a museum charting the history and culture of the region.
The Mata Temple is a labyrinthine cave temple that is unique for its combination of natural underground wonders coupled with extraordinary paintings, sculptures and murals.
If you want to get a taste of traditional village life in the Punjab then village tours are available for visitors. Food tours that take you on a culinary tour of the city are also a great way to experience the real personality of this remarkable destination.
