Amritsar lies in the heart of Punjab and is home to the iconic Golden Temple. It beckons travelers from all over the world in search of healing and happiness at Darbar sahib.
As we only have two days – we booked for an early morning cab for Amritsar. Started 3:00am. Stopped at one of the Dhaba’s to have some tea and snacks.
We headed towards Harmandir Sahib directly as it was already 9:00am it took us 2 hours as there was a long queue due to weekend but the wait was worth , The moment we entered I could feel the inner peace, I sat on the ground and listened to Gurbani for half an hour . Take kadaya prasad from outside from the left side of the temple sit aside to the sarovar and watch the fishes which are there from years. If you are carrying clothes to change do not hesitate – Soke yourself in the holy water.
After spending quality time at Harmandir Sahib we started for the Most famous Patriotic place Baga border which is around 25km from Amritsar on the way we took a quick look at Jallianwala Bagh , Kapda Market , Got lunch packed from Paratha Wali Gali & there we are at Baga Border .
Indian Soldiers were on their toes for security check before the programs, after clearing the security check rushed towards the stairs, luckily we got the first lane.
On the other side of the gate you can hear some slogans for Pakistan the same way for India at our side.
The loud songs on India will give you goose bumps and you will automatically start with all the Indian Slogans.
If you are lucky you might get chance to hold The National Flag and run, do not miss to dance on the Indian songs, we were so excited that I could stop myself and went in the crowd for my contribution.
From Amritsar we headed towards Chandigarh met some old friends and back to Delhi ….
