Amritsar - The Cradle Of The Golden Temple One of the largest cities in the state of Punjab in northwest India, Amritsar is the spiritual and cultural centre of the Sikh community. Named after the holy tank of Amrit Sarovar, the city of Amritsar was founded in the 16th century by the 4th Sikh Guru, Guru Ram Das Ji. His successor Guru Arjan Dev Ji developed the city into a sprawling town and in 1601, completed the construction of the magnificent temple that was initiated by Guru Ram Das Ji. Before the Partition of India in 1947, Amritsar was of paramount importance in the business and commercial front of undivided Punjab. However, the partition left Amritsar as a border town lining India’s western border with Pakistan. The trade activities of the town are now limited to carpets and fabrics, handicrafts, farm produce, service trades and light engineering. Amritsar tourism is another major commercial activity of the region. Dalhousie Dalhousie is the cultural and scenic heartbeat of Chamba district in Himachal Pradesh.
