Amritsar to Amanat Khan Serai



A trip from Amritsar to Amanat Khan Serai would take one to one of the only four remaining serais of Punjab dating back to the Mughal period. Serais, as the name implicates refer to an inn.

The Amanat Khan Serai is situated amidst all its nostalgia at a distance of 38 km from the city of Amritsar. Time has ravaged much of its beauty and glory but what has remained can surely give an idea of the impressive arrangement that once existed in this serai.

Serai Amanat Khan is all the more special with its arched get ways that have been exquisitely sculpted out reflecting the Mughal style of architecture. The ruins of the glazed tile decor invokes nostalgia of a bygone era.

The beauty of Amanat Khan Serai is also largely due to the 'Bouli' that is attached to the ruined well of the serai. Lying almost unnoticed, this richness from the Mughal period is situated in a small village to the south west of the main city of Amritsar.

The beautiful Serai Amanat Khan houses the tomb of Amanat Khan, majestically guarded by the minarets on the four sides of the tomb.

The mosque in the vicinity is adorned with beautiful verses in Persian. The serai had an arrangement of hundreds of rooms and is almost 100 yards both in length and breadth. This serai like the others served for the accommodation to the people passing the royal road from Atari to Govindwal.

All of them, including the Amanat Khan Serai, has water tanks to serve the inmates staying in the serais. The place is historically rich and it is also easily accessible from Amritsar to Amanat Khan Serai.
