Since the inception of Amritsar in the 16th century with the Golden Temple at its heart, the city has been through some massive transformations with each one leaving its mark on the city. With this slow-paced walking tour, allow us to walk you through the historical turn of events, the lives and times of the generations of locals dwelling around the most important monument of the Sikh religion as we pass through the narrow streets and bylanes.

Learn in detail about one of the most exuberant cities in Indian history with our curated heritage walk of Amritsar that goes through the first government office of the British at the Town Hall and the Saragarhi Gurdwara, into an ancient fortress turned one of the very important trade centers of the city, across the most popular shopping streets for wedding bangles and household utensils. Visit some of the very old but forgotten temples and meditation centers whose inside premises never got to see any natural light.

Our expert guides will share their research and knowledge about the history of the Sikh religion and some of the ancient battles fought by the rulers, the onset of the British Rule and its impact while we get a sneak peek into the lives of the locals. We will also get to taste some of the most popular street food of Amritsar like puri chhole, karah, lassi, and mouthwatering local sweets.

This curated heritage walk of Amritsar has been extremely popular amongst solo-travelers, couples, and families who are looking for in-depth local and off-the-beaten experiences. Many of the most beautiful, picture-perfect places of the old Amritsar and its locals are covered in this guided tour for some amazing photography. Also regarded as a mini food tour of Amritsar, our heritage walk is a teaser of the secret culinary activities of the locals.
