Location info

Amritsar (Punjabi: ਅੰਮ੍ਰਿਤਸਰ) historically also known as Rāmdāspur and colloquially as Ambarsar, since 1574. It is the largest and most important city of the Punjab state in India. It lies about 15 miles (25 km) east of the border with Pakistan.

Amritsar is the spiritual centre for the Sikh religion and the site of the Sikhs’ principal place of worship—the Harimandir, or Golden Temple. This important Sikh shrine attracts more visitors than the Taj Mahal with more than 100,000 visitors on week days alone. The 2011 Indian census reported the population of the city to be 1,132,761. 

Amritsar has a semiarid climate, typical of Northwestern India and experiences four seasons primarily: winter season (November to March) with temperature ranges from 4 °C (39 °F) to about 19 °C (66 °F), summer season (April to June) where temperatures can reach 45 °C (113 °F), monsoon season (July to September) and post-monsoon season (September to November).
