Foreign tourists start visiting Amritsar again

 Tuesday, August 2, 2022 


More than two years since the beginning of Covid-19 pandemic, Punjab’s most sought-after tourist destination Amritsar is once again seeing foreign tourist influx, with visitors having fun on the streets of the heritage city, and this is giving rise to hopes of huge visitor arrival in the coming months along with tourism recovery.

Many flights are now operational to and from Sri Guru Ram Das Jee International Airport in Amritsar. Foreign tourists are arriving in the city to witness the famous Sikh temple Sri Harmandar Sahib, also known as the ‘Golden Temple’, Heritage Street, India-Pakistan Partition Museum and Jallianwala Bagh among other attractions.

At Jallianwala Bagh, domestic tourists can be seen taking selfies with the foreign tourists.

Prior to the pandemic, foreign tourists typically visited Amritsar during winters. This time, they are visiting the city during summer, although in lesser numbers.

Mandeep Kaur, a tourist officer in Amritsar said that considering the onset of tourists arriving in the city, they are expecting bigger tourist numbers during the peak season, which goes on from mid-September till February.

Kultar Singh, the manager of Sri Guru Ram Das Niwas (sarai) said that foreign tourists started coming from the end of June. On an average, four-five tourists come to stay at the sarai regularly. Separate ward for the foreign tourists in the sarai remained vacant for two and half years.
