After taking a dip in the holy waters of the sarovar, you would feel all clean and pious. The aura of the Golden Temple is such that no one goes away empty-handed. It is believed that taking a bow in front of the Guru Granth Sahib at the premises of the gurudwara is a cherishable experience. In order to maintain the sanctity of the sacred place of worship for the Sikhs, at least till 1 km, non-vegetarian food and alcohol is not available. Every year, thousands of devotees throng the city of Amritsar, offering prayers and taking back some hope. 

There’s another amazing thing about Amritsar that you cannot miss out, the food. Punjabis are big at heart for sure, but their love for food is even bigger. Thick, creamy lassis are churned right from early morning while the kulchas and parathas are tossed on tawas to be served for breakfast. You have bread pakoras, kachoris, samosas and a plethora of options during breakfast time. The ghee-loaded nashta is enjoyed by the locals and tourists alike.
