NH20 leads me to Pathankot from where I can get NH44(Srinagar-Kanyakumari) to go Amritsar. From Pathankot to Amritsar is a well-maintained part of NH44. It took just 1 and a half hour to reach Golden temple. Most of the routes inside Amritsar city are built such a way that it leads toward Golden temple. I took hotel over there as temple management won't allocate a room for a single person.
Inside area of the temple is clean and well maintained but the surrounding is not that nice and feels congested walking around. Area of the temple is big enough that it will take 3-4 hrs to walk in and roam. It has one of the biggest kitchens in India which serves more than 100,000 people every day.
Attari Wagah border is around 30Km from Amritsar, and It is always a proud feeling for every Indian to visit this place. The environment at Wagah is like the same we feel on Independence Day or Republic day. Songs dedicated to the nation are playing on speakers. People gathered for ' beating retreat ' are yelling 'Bharat Mata Ki Jai' 'Vande Mataram'. Indian national anthem is playing in the background. The crowd full of energy making noise and motivating soldiers to make this ceremony like never before. Similar kind of environment is across the border, they also yelling for their country and motivating to their army. At the border, we can feel the respect in the air for our nation. People trust them, support them, motivate them, make them feel like they are the nation in which we are living.
