Amritsar Dalhousie Dharamshala 

A sojourn that epitomizes and showcases the spiritual side of three distinguished cultures and religions, this journey takes you through the holy city of Amritsar, the headquarters of Tibetans in Dharamshala, and the beautiful landscapes of the Kangra district of Himachal Pradesh.



The golden temple which is also known as Harmandir Sahib located in Amritsar, Punjab, is considered the holiest shrine in the Sikh religion. Sikhs from all over the world visit the golden temple. Golden temple construction began in the year 1574 on land donated by the Mughal emperor Akbar. 


The temple is surrounded by a lake called Sarovar that is assumed to have water (holy water) inside it to take away the sins of people. Sikhism is a monotheistic religion founded in the fifteenth century in Punjab on the teachings of Guru Nanak Dev Ji and ten successive Sikh Gurus. It is one of the fastest-growing religions in the world. 


The principal beliefs of Sikhism are faith and justice, in “Waheguru”, the almighty.  Sikhism advocates the pursuit of salvation through disciplined, personal meditation on the name and message of God. Adherents of Sikhism are known as Sikhs and number over 26 million across the world.
