AMRITSAR

Amritsar is located in the northwest part of India in the State of Punjab, 32 miles (51 km) east of Lahore, Pakistan. Some have taken the name Amritsar to derive Amŗit-sarovar meaning "The PoolGolden Temple Amritsar, Amritsar Sightseeing Tour of the Nectar of Immortality" though -sar, "Natural pool" does not derive from sarovar, "Artificial tank or body of water". It is home to the Harimandir Sahib, also known as the Golden Temple, and is the spiritual and cultural centre of the Sikh religion. This important sikh shrine attracts more visitors than the Taj Mahal in Agra and is the number one destination for non-resident Indians (NRI) in the whole of India. It is also known for the unfortunate incidents of Jallianwala Bagh Massacre under the British Rule (1919) and the Operation Bluestar in (1984) under the Late Prime Minsiter Indira Gandhi.
