Description

Amritsar is one of the largest cities of the Punjab state in India. The city source lies in the village of Tung, and was named after the lake founded by the fourth Sikh Guru Ram Das in 1574 on land bought by him for 700 rupees from the owners of the village of Tung. Earlier times, Guru Ram Das had begun building Santokhsar Sarovar, near the village of Sultanwind in 1564 (according to one source in 1570). It could not be accomplished before 1588. In 1574, Guru Ram Das built his residence and settled to this place. At that time, it was known as Guru Da Chakk.

Amritsar's central walled city has narrow streets mostly developed in the 17th and 18th century. The city is a perfect example of an introverted planning system with unique areas called Katras. The Katras are self-styled residential units that provided unique security system during attacks on the city.

The Golden temple is situated in the holy city of the Sikhs, Amritsar. The Golden temple is known for its full golden dome, it is one of the most sacred pilgrim spots for Sikhs. The Mandir is built on a 67-ft square of marble and is a two floored structure. Maharaja Ranjit Singh had the upper half of the building built with about 400 kg of gold leaf. The Golden Temple is surrounded by  number of other famous temples like the Durgiana Temple. The fourth Guru of Sikhs, Guru Ram Das, who had initially constructed a pool here, founded Amritsar, which houses the Golden Temple or Harmandir Sahib.
