The Great Attraction of VSKP is INS KURSURA(S20). If INS Vikrant (Old Air craft Carrier now retired and braking down) was sent to VSKP that can also will be a big Hit and generate Revenue how this Sub is generating to Navy for her own maintenance. But un fortunately Mumbai not have that kind of interest on VIKRANT as AP have interest in KURSURA..........In September 2007, Vice Admiral Carol M. Pottenger of the United States Navy visited the submarine when she wrote in the guestbook "What a fantastic experience. The Indian Navy should be very proud of this awesome display". She said that the submarine was very well preserved and they did not have anything similar to it in the United States.

Must visit and feel the Submarine.

Food Tips in "Ambarsari Tadka'.
1. Never Ever Forget to enjoy the God's own grace Food in Langar provided in The Darbaar sahib (Golden Temple) premises.
2. Brothers Dhabba or Bhrawan Dhabba, are two nearly identical restaurants right next to each other near Town Hall. Both highly rated. Brothers' "Amritsari Kulcha" is to literally die for.
3. Kesar da Dhaba. Located near the Golden
Temple, it offers good Punjabi food made in pure ghee. Daal Makhni is worth trying. Don't forget to try a glass of Lassi after a meal.
4. Bubby Dhaba, opposite Golden Temple (Just opposite the main entrance of Golden Temple). serves authentic Punjabi food at a very reasonable cost and ideally located, just few metres from the main entrance of the Holy Golden Temple.
5. Moolchand Fish Shop, Its Off the GT Road near Tourist Guesthouse. Find the Christchurch Cathedral (large red-and-green church, pretty conspicuous!) and keep walking, away from GT road. In about 2 minutes, you'll see a little shop selling fish. Open 08:00-23:00. This tiny place is the definition of hole-in-the wall. If it looks like it has been there for 50 years, it's because it has! They'll weigh out your fish based on how much you want to pay, fry it, put some delicious spices on it, and serve it with spicy green chutney and raw onions. A little hard to find, but worth it. About 50 rupees for a good-sized piece of fish, 70 rupees for a serving of chicken.
6. Gurdass Ram Jalebi wale (Pure vegetarian), Ahluwali Katra (very close to the main gate of Golden Temple). Eat Jalebis.... Only a indie sweet shop.
7. Kulcha Chole Dhaba (Pure vegetarian), Located at No. 1, Maqbool Road. Best Kulchas ever. Only a tandoori kulcha joint. No non veg at all.
PS: A end tip , Just don't Forget to enjoy the hot and tasty Amritsari Kulche Chholle. They are world famous. Doesn't matters from where you eat (obviously don't eat from Thela or footpath) , the taste will be somehow same and once for a lifetime.

Amritsar is most popular as the home to the most famous Sikh shrine, the Golden Temple (In Local Language Its Darbaar Sahib). The holy city also houses other important religious sites like Akal Takht, Ram Tirth are a few one must visit.
Places of historical importance too can be found in Amritsar. Jallianwala Bagh, Central Sikh Museum and Wagah Border are some places one must not miss in Amritsar.
Now Individual people can have there own itinerary, but i would still provide the best one to cover all these places in Just 1
singe day.
Arrive Amritsar by the nightfall and prebook a Retiring Room online. Fresh up yourself and go for walk to Hall bazaar (Ghanta ghar) for a evening shopping and Masti. Its just on the Opposite side (i.e its towards the Pf 5 direction). Come outside on Pf 1 side (Its GT Road) and move towards the Road overbridge to cross the station and as you come down you will reach Ghant Ghar gate and Hall gate.
Next morning at about 8 am , check out from Retiring room and deposit your luggage in cloak room. Take a auto from GT road (Many shared auto also present) and go to Jaliianwala bagh. Feel the Pains and struggle that our forefathers suffered by Britishers. After that at about 10 am come outside , eat something (seriously do eat or else you will suffer after sometime). Then start walking towards Darbaar sahib. If in doubt ask anyone, they will guide you the correct road. Its hardly 300 m straight road away from Jallianwala bagh. Now deposit your shoes and go inside. The main golden temple is in centre of a sacred saravor/lake. There is always queue here , so atleast you have to spend 20-30 minutes standing , walking before entering into Darbaar sahib. Once you are inside , then you can sit , pray ,meditate or just feel the atmosphere for ANY amount of time. Nobody will ask you to empty the space. Unless you are not blocking other people walking space.
After praying , reach to LANGAR. Enjoy the simple and authentic , but Tasty langar (Lunch with Roti , Daal , Kheer). Eat as much as you want. Nobody will ask you to stop eating. ;)
After fillng up your tummy , then take a walk into Central Sikh Museum and enjoy all the rare "Ancient things" related to Sikhism.
At about 2 pm , bid farewell to Darbaar sahib and come outside. Book a cab/Vehicle/Full Tempo if you in family or else take a share tempo from outside for going to Wagah Border.
Wagah Border is nearly 25 km away from Amritsar. Here daily at 5 m , a Beating retreat ceremony happens and both BSF and Pakistan Rangers showcase their "Chivalrous attitude" and "Bold Aggressive but 'Animated' patriotism". Its a treat for all the visitors. You will seriously get the true feeling of being INDIAN. After Beating retreat, come back to Amritsar.
By 8 pm, you will be again at Amritsar Station (Unless you don't waste more time anywhere else).
But there are many other places to visit in Amritsar , But seriously saying , The Government doesn't take that much care of these other places like Ram Tirath (Place where Goddess Sita lived with her twin sons Luv and Kush when Lord Rama abandoned her), Maharaja Ranjit Singh Summer palace Museum (Contains all the things of Great ruler Maharaja Ranjit singhji life).

Small size is ok.
But if its medium or large size, then a big no considering the huge crowd.
