Full description
You will start the day with a visit to Harmandir Sahib, informally known as the Golden Temple, with an English speaking tour guide.  The Golden Temple is the holiest Sikh Gurdwara (temple) and was built in the 16th Century by the fifth Sikh guru, Guru Arjan.  Its outstanding size and beauty make it a must-see during your time in India.   After the Golden Temple you will visit Jallianwala Bagh, a public garden which houses a memorial of national importance, established in 1951 to commemorate the massacre by British occupying forces. Next, you will explore the famous Hall Bazaar.  Here you can find local handicrafts, clothes, shoes and more.  It's the perfect place to pick up some souvenirs from your trip.  After the bazaar, you will stop for lunch at a local restaurant or hotel and spend some time relaxing in the hotel afterwards. After this you will drive to Wagah border for the evening Indo – Pak parade ceremony.  Wagah border post, about 29 kilometers from Amritsar on the Grand Trunk, has become famous for the ceremonial closing of gates and lowering of flags of India and Pakistan. Border Security Force and Pakistani Rangers march towards the gates from their respective sides. After the gate is thrown open, the soldiers salute each other and start lowering the flags. The flags are carefully folded and carried back. The ceremony reaches a crescendo with the soldiers return to the border line for the final handshake. Once done, no glance is exchanged and the gates are slammed close. The blowing of the bugle marks the end of the ceremony. As the ceremony climbs to its apogee, cries of Jai Hind and Pakistan Zindabad render in the air. You will watch ceremony from the VIP gallery and you will be dropped of at your hotel after the ceremony.
