Amritsar has as much political history as Delhi, the nation’s capital. It dates back in 1577, when the fourth Guru of the Sikh order, Guru Ram Das, founded the beautiful city. The fact that it has a history of Jallianwala Bagh massacre and has a very close proximity with the Wagah Border, justifies its place on our list. Tourists from around the world choose Amritsar (or literally meaning, the holy pool of nectar) to witness the the spiritual and cultural side of the Sikh religion.
