Travel Tips For Tourists In Amritsar

Men and Women need to keep their head covered when in the gurudwara. Head scarfs are generally available free of cost for devotees at the gurudwara entrance itself or else these can be purchased.

The marble flooring at the Golden Temple gets quite hot during the day and it can be really cold during winters', so watch out and use the mats that have been laid out in the centre of the path leading to the gurudwara.

Be mindful that alcohol and smoking are a strict no not only within the sacred shrine but also anywhere in the vicinity.

When planning a train journey to Amritsar, it is advisable to book a to and fro journey, since the trains are often filled to capacity.

If you buy the kirpan and are a non-sikh then it would be a good idea to carry a receipt as a proof of purchase.

A great way to cherish the memories of your visit to the Wagah Border and the march-off ceremony is to buy a CD, which has the whole ceremony, recorded on it. These are available for Rs. 50.
