 Day 2 : Amritsar
After breakfast move for sightseeing covering

Golden Temple- Golden Temple or Darbar Sahib is the most sacred temple for Sikhs - one which every Sikh longs to make a pilgrimage to, and thousands visit daily. Guru Ram Das, the fourth Guru of the Sikhs, who came to live near this peaceful place, started building the pilgrimage centre around the small pool, (later to become the Sarowar).

The Harmandir Sahib, as the main temple is known, was envisioned by Guru Arjan Dev. It was conceived by him to reflect the resoluteness, clarity and simplicity of the Sikh religion. The four doors, one on each side of the Temple, are symbolically open to all four castes - Brahmins, Kshatriyas, Vaishyas and Shudras.

The beautiful gilding, artistic marble inlays and the elaborate mirror-work on the Harmandir Sahib came much later. It was only in the nineteenth century during the reign of Maharaja Ranjit Singh, that the people of Punjab lavished their wealth on their revered shrine. The Granth Sahib, the holy book of the Sikhs, was installed in the Harmandir Sahib in 1604, three years after its completion.

The fact that the foundation stone of the Golden temple was formally laid by the Muslim mystic, Mir Mohammed Muayyinul Islam, popularly known as Mian Mir, in 1589 on the request of Guru Arjun Dev, sends out a strong message of communal amity. The Guru-ka-Langar or the common canteen, provides free food to all visitors, regardless of colour, creed, caste or gender. The holy scripture is brought in a vivid procession from the Akal Takhat (the highest temporal seat of the Sikhs) in the morning to the temple to be returned at night. Singing is central to Sikh worship & is a feast to the souls when hymns from the holy scripture are recited Kirtan and the waves of the classical ragas, a sublim blend of voice & music.

Jallianwala Bagh- The historic site where hundreds of innocent Indian men, women an children were massacred by British General Michael Dyer on April 13, 1919. A memoral and Garden have been created here as a national monument.

Afternoon visit Indo-Pak Border to watch retreat ceremony-35 KM on the road to Lahore is India-Pakistan Border. A visit to the border is an interesting experience especially at Sunset, when the retreat ceremony takes place with the Border Security Force on the Indian Side and the Sutlej Rangers on the Pakistan side putting up a well coordinated and spectacular display. The sound from the Bugles blown together from both sides paints past on the canvas when India and Pakistan were one, simultaneously Flags of the two nations are ceremoniously retrieved and lights are switched on marking the end of the day. Amidst thunderous applause today this point is the only land route open to approach Pakistan and central Asia.
