Useful information about the flight from London to Amritsar

Amritsar, travel for the spirit

Enjoy the wonderful atmosphere of Amritsar, temples, and historical and cultural attractions.

Best time for an Amritsar trip  

Amritsar is a unique and welcoming destination, and the spiritual hub of the Sikh religion. The Golden Temple complex is the main attraction surrounded by the Amrit Sarovar, a huge, serene pool of water. The name 'Amritsar' translates as 'holy pool of nectar.' 

Amritsar is comfortable  for travel especially in the winter months, October to March. Summer temperatures rise to 42 while the winter climate is much milder. 

For local colour and celebrations you could consider the major Sikh or Hindu festivals all honoured in Amritsar. The Festival of Vaisakhi in April, a harvest and equinoctial celebration, is accompanied by traditional music and processions. A most sacred festival is Guru Nanak Gurpurab in November. Accompanied by hymns, bands and displays of weaponry, the procession is exciting and impressive. Deepavali/Diwali, the Festival of Lights where darkness is symbolically overcome is in late October or early November as a rule. The wonderful spring festival of Holi, the Festival of colours is usually in February or March.
