A holy city, Amritsar stands as the spiritual and cultural capital of Sikhism, and the location of the religion's most revered and holiest shrine. Founded by the fourth Sikh guru, Ram Das, the city has grown up around its main temple, with a knotted, crowded set of narrow streets surrounding the golden building in the old part of town. The scene of one of the worst massacres of the colonial era, several plots in the old part of town mark the killing of hundreds, perhaps thousands of Sikhs by the British in 1919, with memorials, relics, and monuments. The newer portion of the city lacks the historical atmosphere, but gets just as crowded, with a high density of malls and hotels to meet the needs of the thousands of tourists and pilgrims arriving each day. Amritsar is in Amritsar District. Plan the details of your Amritsar holiday and any onward adventuring with our easy-to-use India trip itinerary site .
