Punjab Travel Guide

Edit This The best resource for sights, hotels, restaurants, bars, what to do and see



Punjab is the state of the Sikhs. In the streets, you will see many turbands and bearded men in traditional dress. The capital of both Punjab and Haryana is Chandigarh. Chandigarh is actually not part of either but a union territory. For Sikhs, Amritsar, almost on the border with Pakistan, is of greater importance because it is the city where the Golden Temple is located. Although Amritsar is quite a busy and congested town, the tranquil atmosphere of the Golden Temple and its surroundings will make a lasting impression.

Punjab, and Amritsar in special, has the only open border crossing between India and Pakistan (Lahore). Lahore used to be the capital of Punjab until it was allocated to Pakistan. For many travellers, Punjab and Haryana are the states through which to pass when they're leaving Delhi behind and continuing their way to the Himalayan states.
