Hey All,

I am planning to do Lahore - Amritsar - Lahore as a weekend trip, so things to ponder are,

Visa Issues for Pakistani nationals
Accomodation Options
To-Do list in Amritsar

Anyone..... ???

its not too convenient for pakistani's to get a visa for India (and vice versa I assume). it takes quite a few weeks i have heard. you can best ask the Indian embassy in islamabad. Obviously the golden temple is the highlight of Amritsar. You will find accomodation around the temple. I dont know what your budget. Travellers on travellerpoint mostly look for the cheaper places so i would recommend MK sood guesthouse (+91-0183-5093376). Its about 600 IND rupees for a double. There are even cheaper options. You can for example also stay in the Golden temple since it has accomodation blocks for pelgrims and visitors (could be a nice experience i think). The dorm is for free, rooms start from 50 rupees. Goodluck.

Now-a-days getting visa is not at all a problem. And mostly it takes 7-10 days for the visa application to gets processed.

There is sooo much to see in and around Amritsar apart from Golden Temple. You can see Wagah Border, there are historical places of relegious importance, then there is awesome Punjabi food, that you might get alot at home as well. If you are low on budget.... u might look for free accomodation within temple complex or else there are many cheap but good hotels around the temple complex. Then mingle with the crowd in Amritsar, that shuld not be problem 4 u as u urself are a punjabi and ask them wat other place to see
