Before we share you 2 days journey of Kashmir, now we are going after them. Sorry guys we are late update but now we are here. So we are starting now:
On the next morning, we reached Amritsar station, around 7 or 7.30 a.m. This station is mix up with vintage and modern style both. On that time people were starting their daily routine, running for work. So we came out of the station, took a car and move to our hotel which we booked from the beginning.
After we settle down our luggage in our hotel room then we were going to the dining place for breakfast. Then we took some time to rest. We decided to visit some places in the evening time. After our lunch, we were ready to explore Punjab. At first, we reached at Jallianwala Bagh around 3 p.m. We entered that place, it was a historical place. In our Kashmir journey, we are covering Panjab also.
The Jallianwala Bagh massacre, also known as the Amritsar massacre, took place on 13 April 1919 when troops of the British Indian Army under the command of Acting Brigadier-General Reginald Dyer fired rifles into a crowd of unarmed Punjabi civilians who had gathered in Jallianwala Bagh, Amritsar, Punjab.

We saw the mark of bullets, a memorial pillar in remembrance of the martyrs. We saw there a pillar of flame which never ceases. That place now becomes a beautiful garden, people visit there, remember them. There was a little museum to describe the incident of how it happened. On that place when you will try to imagine the crime you will understand how horrible it was. You guys try to visit that place.
At Wagah Border
Then we were going to the Wagah Border. This border is one of the paths which can connect India to Pakistan. There are two transport terminal ways, one of them by road and second is by train. So many people commute in these ways. Wagah is a small village of Wahga Zone of Lahore, Punjab, Pakistan. That places famous for a ceremony. Best time to go at 4 p.m. because the ceremony starts at 4.15 p.m. (in winter, in summer at 5.15 p.m.). Their ceremony lasts for 45 min. So try to reach or else you cannot see cause too much crowd of people and do not carry any kind of ladies handbag, purse, food and all; this is strict rules for safety.
We reached there at 4.30 p.m., so we missed the good place to stand and had trouble a little bit. But it was a very good ceremony, people enjoyed a lot, they were clapping, cheering. Very much enjoying moment it was. Then we saw the border from a distance. We saw the cavalry army there. Then time to go most visited place of Amritsar.
After that, we moved on to the Golden Temple. It was at 7 p.m. We reached there. We walked forward to the temple. At first, all of us know that it is a holy place and we should not wear shoes. So there was a very big counter to collect your shoes. We saw people were collecting our shoes by hand, take them on the shoe rack and we were very surprised.
The Harmandar Sahib also known as Darbar Sahib is a Gurdwara located in the city of Amritsar, Punjab, India. It is the preeminent pilgrimage site of Sikhism. It is usually called the Golden Temple in English because it is plated with gold. Wikipedia
The temple is surrounded by a beautiful lake and the temple is fully made of pure gold. It is a very quiet place. You can spend hours there. Sikh people are very humble and kind. Before entering the temple you have to cover your head by cloth, it’s the rituals of them. And any kind of camera is not allowed in the temple, not for Indians, for foreigner also. After all, it’s about safety. They serve food
daily poor people at the price of just 15 rupees and pure vegetable, ghee. This is amazing to see. If you ever visited Punjab but not visited Golden Temple, so nothing to say. This temple is a very clean and very good system for people who visited here every day. It was an amazing day. Whose end is good, all of which are good, it’s true.
