Meanwhile, the north side of town is far more modern, full of spectacular towers, upmarket restaurants and a wide range of events and activities. Head to Hall Bazaar for one-stop shopping, exquisite textiles, or why not try a food tour?
The people of Amritsar are well known for their warmth to visitors, and a visit here is likely to be your first of many. Give it a try, and we promise this unknown gem of a city will become your new favourite.
