India - Haryana & Punjab (Chapter)
This is the Haryana & Punjab chapter from Lonely Planet’s India guidebook.
Studded with gleaming gurdwaras (Sikh temples) – including the unmissable Golden Temple in Amritsar – Punjab has become a popular stop on the traveller circuit. Haryana is more of a touristic mystery, best known for its modernist capital, Chandigarh.
- feel the energy of absolute belief at Amritsar’s spectacular Golden Temple, Sikhism’s holiest site
- get off the beaten track by diving into the old town of Patiala before sizing up its impossibly charming 18th-century fort
- watch the theatrical battle for supremacy between Indian and Pakistani border guards at Wagah’s border-closing ceremony
- restaurants & accommodation
Coverage includes: Chandigarh & around, Yadavindra Gardens, Morni Hills, Haryana, Kurukshetra (Thanesar), Punjab, Anandpur Sahib, Patiala, Bathinda, Faridkot, Amritsar, and Pathankot.
