Amritsar :-

Guru Ram Das, the fourth Sikh guru is credited with founding the holy city of Amritsar in the Sikh tradition. Amritsar has been chosen as one of the heritage cities for HRIDAY - Heritage City Development and Augmentation Yojana scheme of Government of India. Amritsar is home to the Harmandir Sahib, popularly known as "the Golden Temple," one of Sikhism's most spiritually significant and most-visited gurudwaras. The city is also known for its wooden chessboards and chess pieces manufacturing industry.

Gurgaon to Amritsar : It Takes Approximately 8 - 10 hours . There are n number of buses and Trains on daily basis. And if you are taking flight it takes only 1 - 2 hours and you will at the home of Harmandir Shahib. I took Train with my family. And we reached there at mid of the night on 04 March. After that My father took us to Army Guest House . Ya correct , my father is in Army. So We live there only for 4 days. And From Next Day my journey of wandering Amritsar Started.

First We went to Wagah Border which is situated at Wahga i.e. is a village and union council (UC 181) located in the Wahga Zone of Lahore, Punjab, Pakistan. The town is famous for the Wagah border ceremony and also serves as a goods transit terminal and a railway station between Pakistan and India.

Wagah Border ( Here Indian People to INDIA - Tu Tiger Hai , Roar Kar )

It always be great feeling , when you are witnessing the strength of Our Army or Jawans . The lowering of the flags ceremony at the Attari-Wagah border is a daily military practice that the security forces of India and Pakistan have jointly followed since 1959. It takes approx 45 minutes to finish the ceremony. Whenever you stand for your country there is some another kind of energy and patriotism feeling around you. The people who came to witness the ceremony feel proud to their country.

There are two gates on each side of the border in India and Pakistan and BSF jawans perform the retreat parade.

The Harmandar Sahib also known as Darbar Sahib, is a Gurdwara located in the city of Amritsar, Punjab, India. It is the preeminent pilgrimage site of Sikhism. It is usually called the Golden Temple in English, because it is plated with gold.

When i reach there it feels so much peace in my soul, feel so pure. After taken the blessing went for SEVA. SEVA ( Self Service ) ,SEVA involves like free service in Gurdwaras washing dishes, cleaning the floors, serving food, etc. Its totally depends on you. there is no one there to interrupt or force you.Every one in the Gurudwara , cover there head . You can say as it is rituals of the Gurudwara.
