During this combined excursion we visit the the Golden Temple and Jalianwala Bagh in the morning, and then in the evening witness the changing of the guard at the Pakistan-India Wagah border post.
The world famous complex of the Golden Temple of Amritsar is located in the center. The actual shrine of the Sikh temples, the Hari Mandir, is surrounded by a pond called Amrit Sarovar, roughly translated, a "pool of nectar ', which gave the city its name. The temple has a golden dome in the shape of an inverted lotus flower. You'll visit the walled garden Jalianwala Bagh, an important point in the history of Amritsar and the pursuit of Indian independence. In 1919 a massacre took place in the park, where the British Indian army opened fire on a group of unarmed men, women and children. You'll see there a monument to the victims.
The second part of the tour takes place in the evening, you visit the border post between India and Pakistan (28 km from Amritsar), where a lot of ceremonial display shows the changing of the guard and taking down of the flags. There is even a stand there to see it all from.
