Punjab is the most culturally rich region of India, where you can get to know and understand Sikhism better. The culture of Punjab is almost equivalent to Sikhism due to the predominant presence of Sikhs in the state. Not only this, the Sikh warrior group, Khalsa, was born here in Punjab.
The state of Punjab was established on 1 November 1966. Since then, Punjab has been known for its many characteristics. It has been seen that Punjab is the first choice for people to visit because the food, surroundings, natural places, etc. here reflect the beauty of the place.
Especially the liveliness and behavior of the people here attract everyone’s mind. So today we have brought you the famous tourist places in Punjab, which are considered as the first choice of people to visit.
The Vikhayat Golden Temple by the name of Harminder Sahib, known worldwide, is located in Amritsar. Amritsar is the most visited tourist destination in India. Every day thousands of tourists visit the Golden Temple to pay obeisance. It is the most revered pilgrimage place for Sikhs in the world.
Apart from the Golden Temple, tourists can also see Jallianwala Bagh, Maharaja Ranjit Singh Museum, Guru’s Palace, Wagah Border, etc. in Amritsar. And yes, do not forget to shop in Amritsar, traditional Punjabi clothes can be shopped in the Hall Bazaar here.
