Living in Amritsar


The busy Amritsar city is the epicenter of Sikh religion and culture. The city of the Golden Temple also records a long suffering saga of tragedy brought forth by the carnage of the Jallianwala Bagh Massacre.
Currently, however the city is moving towards rapid industrialization and living in Amritsar is just like living in any other big, metropolitan city.

The traces of Sikh culture are very much prominent in Amritsar. Although the citizens have adopted a modern lifestyle, they are a deeply religious set of people. Their core activities are centered mainly around the gurdwara. Apart from the routine activities and offering prayers, the devotees are also involved in doing 'seva'.

The populace of Amritsar are an industrious lot. Occupationally,they are mostly businessmen while some of them are big industrialists and head the boards of well known companies. These rich and hardworking people also love to enjoy life. They live life to the fullest and love to eat, drink and make merry. In fact, socializing and entertainment in Punjab are centered primarily around food and drink. The traditional Punjabi cuisine is the mouthwatering tandoori fare which although has high fat content is truly irresistible and delectable. The Punjabi men are very jovial and love to wash their throats with some liquor that keeps them in soaring spirits.

The Punjabis also love hearty and boisterous song and dance affairs. The quintessential Bhangra music and the Gidda dance personify the lively culture of the city. The city also has a busy nightlife where instead of hitting the nightclubs, the people throng the various late night food stalls that dish out scrumptious delights.

Thus living in Amritsar is by no means a mundane affair with its bag full of cultural delights.
