Amritsar photos and video

[AFG_gallery id=’1′]

Amritsar’s Golden Temple is the holiest shrine for Sikhs everywhere. Plated in real gold, the Golden Temple shines brilliantly from sunrise to sunset and all through the night. It’s a calm and peaceful place in the middle of one of the most chaotic cities on earth. Everyone gets to stay and eat for free, and foreigner backpackers have their own dorm. No tripods allowed, so it’s a bit challenging to take photos at night.

The daily border show between India and Pakistan takes place at dusk. It’s a raucous affair with crowds on both sides cheering on massively over-dressed guards who march back and forth, while kicking their legs as high as possible. It is a surprisingly comedic and light-hearted display for one of the world’s most tense international borders.
