Bustling lanes outside Harmandir Sahib ( aka Golden Temple), aroma of butter on Chole Kulche, tranquility on entering Jallainwala Bagh and gushing patriotism on watching Wagah border more or less sums up Amritsar.
Our trip to Amritsar had a bad start (thanks to K.S. Travels) with bus arriving late, with congested sleeper coach and with foul smell. We checked into a hotel close to Golden Temple which was booked earlier.
What’s Amritsar without food? One of my friends who come from Amritsar has said before this trip, “Golden Temple, Jallianwala Bagh, Wagah Border waise bhi dekhne jaoge, food in Amritsar is equally important and it’s a foodie’s heaven.” And I must say he is right in every sense. Having Amritsari Chole Kulche in Kulwant da Dahba, Lassi near Golden Temple and dinner at Bharwan da Dhaba is not to be missed. Especially, for Amritsari Chole Kulche, you see butter melting on the Kulcha, you feel Kulcha melting in your mouth and you experience mind melting into Nirvana.
