Whilst Ranjit's Svaasa is not a luxury property, it is one of the few hotels in Amritsar that offers both quality accommodation and bags of character so it often our first choice. The hotel does not have credit card facilities so local currency is required for any extras.

Amritsar is rich in cultural heritage and there is plenty to see and do. You can take a private horse cart (tanga) to visit the evening procession of the Holy Book at the Golden Temple which is one of the most beautiful buildings in India. Floodlit by night, it is a sight not to be missed!
