Mumbai, 30 March, 2017: Taj Hotels Palaces Resorts Safaris today announced the opening of Taj Swarna, Amritsar, the group’s first hotel in the city, strategically located approximately 30 minutes from both the international airport and the sacred Sikh shrine of Shri Harmandir Sahib. A thriving city with the golden grandeur of its renewed infrastructure, Taj Swarna, Amritsar offers contemporary luxury that reflects Amritsar’s rich heritage as well as its bright future.
“Punjab has immense tourism and business potential and we are excited to further extend the signature Taj hospitality with our first hotel in the vibrant city of Amritsar – Taj Swarna, Amritsar.” added Rohit Khosla, Senior Vice President — Operations(North).
