Useful information about the flight from Sharjah to Amritsar

A spectacular, spiritual city

Amritsar is best known as the setting for one of India's most extraordinary sights: the breathtaking Golden Temple. The city is welcoming to tourists and there are a wide variety of other attractions.

Best Amritsar weather and festivals

Amritsar's winters are mild, and these months - from October to March - are the best time to visit the city. Summers can be very hot, with temperatures of up to 42°C. The city is a spiritual one, and all major Hindu and Sikh festivals are celebrated. In April, the Festival of Vaiskhi marks the Punjabi harvest and New Year. In November, Guru Nanak Gurpurab celebrates the birth of the first Sikh guru, while Deepavali in late October or early November is the most important Hindu festival. Holi is a spectacular festival of colour and love marking the spring full moon. 

What you need to know before you travel

You will need a visa to travel to India, available from the Indian High Commission. Your passport must be valid for at least 180 days and have at least two blank pages. Your vaccinations and boosters should be up to date, with hepatitis A, tetanus and typhoid vaccinations all recommended. If you're travelling elsewhere in India you may want to consider vaccinations against cholera, hepatitis B, Japanese encephalitis and rabies. Malaria is present in some parts of India. Do note when visiting the Golden Temple complex, that both men and women should cover their head to respect the Sikh religion. Photographs, smoking and drinking alcohol aren't permitted there. Visitors will find that, in general, costs are far lower than in the UK, with 200 rupees easily paying for basic meals.

Local tips: arrival, transport and accommodation

The city's Sri Guru Ram Das Jee International Airport is located about 11 km from the centre of Amritsar. Buses run regularly from the airport and the journey to the central bus station takes less than 25 minutes. Taxis from the airport are plentiful and hard bargaining with their drivers is both advised and expected, with 300 rupees considered a reasonable price. Budget accommodation will cost you about 200 rupees for a shared room, while luxury hotels cost ten times that. Throughout the city, cycle rickshaws, auto rickshaws and conventional taxis are both plentiful and cheap. It's important to remember that no motorised vehicles are allowed in the area around the Golden Temple.
