Immerse yourself in centuries of history at Amritsar. Home to the beautiful Golden Temple and the Jallianwalla Bagh monument, Amritsar is recognised as the spiritual centre of the Sikh community. This beautiful city was also an important hub of the freedom movement in India.
Sri Guru Ram Dass Jee Airport is located about 11 kilometres outside the city centre. The airport services regular direct flights to Indian cities like New Delhi, Mumbai and Chandigarh, as well as connections to international hubs including Birmingham, Dubai and Kuala Lumpur.
The centrally-located Amritsar Junction Railway Station has regular operations from north and central Indian cities, including multiple express services to New Delhi and Chandigarh. There are also a few express services to Mumbai. The station has a tourist information centre.
The Amritsar Bus Stand is on the Grand Trunk Road, known as India’s first highway. You will find both government-run and privately-owned services that connect Amritsar to other cities in north, central and west India.
Amritsar is well-linked to the Indian metros by a network of National Highways. National Highway 44, which goes all the way to Kanyakumari, is easily accessed from Amritsar, while NH 19 runs to Kolkata, and NH 48 to Mumbai.
