Amritsar – Sikhs saint city
Amritsar – the holy city for the followers of Sikhism – a place very different from all that we have visited in India so far. Sikhs are people pious, kind and helpful. The main principle of the religion adopted by them, is a service of the common good, in Amritsar the tradition of creating a community, a place for all people is being continued. The central point of the city is the Golden Temple, rising on a nectar lake (amrit sar). Life goes on here 24 hours a day: people pray, talk, eat, sit, lie – or just be – all the time. Undeniably it is well worth visiting Amritsar just to experience the atmosphere of that place, but there is much more to see in the city!
