At Asia Senses Travel we’re adventurers at heart. Our journeys are all about discovering new places and cultures while creating unforgettable memories through physical activity and breathtaking scenery.
Founded in 1577 by the fourth Sikh guru, Guru Ram Das, Amritsar is home to the spectacular Golden Temple, Sikhism's holiest shrine and one of India’s most serene and humbling sights. The same cannot be said for the hyperactive streets surrounding the temple, but they're a delight to walk through for a sensory overload of sights, sounds and smells. Since chosen as the location of a holy shrine, Amritsar has bloomed into one of the Punjab’s largest cities. Set between the summer capital of the British Raj, Shimla, and the Pakistani city of Lahore, Amritsar has stood fast through colonial occupation, religious dissent and the partition of India and Pakistan.

The best time to visit Amritsar is from October to March, when the weather stays relatively warm, although temperatures can dip from mid-December to January. From April onward, temperatures begin to rise and can hit 40 C (104 F), and the monsoon rains tend to arrive around July. If you’re happy with a little humidity, the temperatures have begun to cool by September at a time that represents good value for travel to Amritsar.
