Full description
Enjoy 2 days in the magnificent city of Amritsar, where you will visit its famous Golden Temple. Head out to the Wagah border to view the unique Beating Retreat Ceremony. Learn from your local guides about the historical and cultural importance of the sites you visit throughout your tour.  Day 1: Delhi – Amritsar Get picked up in New Delhi, early in the morning, and leave for Amritsar either via train or air, depending on the option you have chosen. Upon arrival at Amritsar, your driver will take you to hotel, where you will have the opportunity to freshen up before your professional guide arrives to take you to the Wagah border. Wagah is where India and Pakistan were divided in 1947, and today you will witness a patriotic and theatrical flagging ceremony performed by both Indian and Pakistani border guards as the border formally closes for the day.  Day 2: Amritsar – Delhi After breakfast at the hotel get ready to visit the Golden Temple with your guide. On your way, pass by a market, where you can admire traditional Sikh arts and crafts. Marvel at the beautiful architecture of the 16th century Golden Temple complex, also known as Harmandir Sahib, which is the Sikhs' most important pilgrimage site. Observe the daily ritual of preparing and distributing food to 1000 visitors regardless of faith and background.  Then, go with your guide to Jallianwala Bagh, a historic garden, but more known as the site of a horrific massacre in 1919. Learn from your guide what lead to this tragic event taking place and its context in the time of British rule in India. After, your guide will take you to the train station or airport for departure back to Delhi. Upon arrival in Delhi, you will be met by a driver, who will drop you at your hotel or any desired location in Delhi.
