Unless you are heading up to or coming down from Kashmir, or planning to cross the border into Pakistan (a big no, no at the moment), Amritsar doesn’t really sit naturally on a journey through northern India. Make the effort to get there, however, and you will be rewarded with one of the most sublime temples in all India, the Golden Temple. This magnificent place of worship is Sikhism’s holiest place of veneration and a marvel to behold. Sikhs are known for their warm hospitality and if you sit awhile within the temple complex, it won’t be long before you are engaged in friendly conversation and taken into the fold like a long lost relative.
