Diwali in Amritsar

Written by Poorna & Brinda
We are still in the middle of Diwali celebrations.
I am writing this post as crackers burst and rockets zoom to sky. The sky looks beautiful with spectacular lights and the street is lit by flowerpots. It is a day of rejoicing and praying. Day when sweets are distributed and gifts are exchanged.
One of spectacular Diwali to witness is in Amritsar. Diwali is holy for Sikhs and Amritsar is the place to be when the Golden temple and surroundings are dazzling. Fireworks add to the grand finale of the festivities in this holy place.
Here are few pictures which should allure you to plan your next trip to Amritsar during Diwali.

We travel together. We caught the travel bug 20 years back. On our honey moon, we traveled over the sea, in the train, by bus and in an aircraft! Our adventures probably started in that year. It continues, ever since.
