Well there are lots of places to visit, for Golden Temple i will share it in detail, here telling breif points only
.
1. #Golden_Temple:- The most famous place in Amritsar I guess for tourist, although its a holy temple and a important place for Sikh-Punjabi Community. Peaceful place with lovely environment. World class infrastructure for basic facilities. Detail tip to be posted along with pics soon.
2.
...
more...
#Jaliwalabagh Museum/Place: It is nearby Golden Temple and at a walking distance from Golden Temple, in front of town hall streets. It is related to history of India and its Partition Time.. bullet marks at walls were still present, a well also in where people jump into it to save their life. Also a small museum telling the truth via dox for the place and story of Udham Singh.
It is well known as "Jaliawala Bagh Massacre"
Pics attached.. for more info may ask in comment
3. #PartitionMuseum:- in my whole trip to Amritsar this place really affect me to change my many opinions, thinking, truth against many people from our history to whom these one sided and paid Historians claimed as GREATEST
If you love history, politics (not Indian Mentality wali) but as subject and trend observer, u must visit this place and spend 4-5 hours here, it is also nearby both above places and situated in Town Hall streets at a walking distance of 500m i guess, there is entry ticket of Rs 20 per head and it is fully Air Condition.. and very large in terms of area too, we manage to spend 2 hours here and i came back here next day too.. few documents of 47 and statements made by the people who lost their close ones in this ridiculous partition made by few mind sick politicians of that time who called themselves freedom fighter. Never see the pain and losses of life which divides the peaceful living people on both side, the data is almost vanished for lose of life in partition but some says 10Lac and some says 15lacs , whatever the data is but its really not a good decision in my opinion. You must visit this place as it tells you about real Hindustan of 1947 (before & after both). Not tells you about India or Pakistan.
4. #DurgianaTemple : It is an important temple in Amritsar and looks similar to Golden Temple, you may say its mini Golden Temple with same structure, entrance, and surrounded by Pool side area. It is 1-2 km far away from Golden Temple i guess
5. #MataLalDevi Temple : Visit this temple for if you wish to visit all Hindu Famous Temple, because this temple has built all famous temple from south to north and east to west.. all Jyotirlings, shakti peeths, char dham, chota char dham, vaishno devi, etc etc all the temples replica not even temple the copy of ardh kuwari cave is also there where you have to pass from a cave.. you will need 30-40 min atleast to visit all the temples as it was in a single lane follow by same path..
It is 4-5Km from Golden Temple i guess
6. #ShriRam_Tirth Temple: It is the birthplace of Luva - Kusha, twins of Rama and Sita in the Ashram of Saint Balmiki. Built in yellow stone the temple dates back to the Ramayana as Sita was given shelter here after being abandoned by Rama. The battle of the Ram’s force and Luv-Kush. It is very big temple and having very big infrastructure development along with precious things in the making..
Balmiki Kutiya is still present and also shows the birth place of LuvKush.. Ramayana Time Temple is situated in front if it..
7. #GovindgarhFort : It is very costly for you if you are thinking to spend 1-2 hours, you need atleast full day or half a day to visit it completely. There are several museum inside it present, several 7D shows, other entertainment things... However its not very big in terms of area if i compare it to many forts of India, and i guess Govt just improve this by adding private ooerators to save this fort and make this fort as tourist attraction.. however in our visit less than 100 people were there as many are unaware of it when they come to amritsar, so needs to be advertise.. there are 2 packages in which different different things available, in the bigger package you will have Lunch as well and laser show in night too..
7D movies and also if you are lucky they will show you complimentary movie too
- Maharaja Ranjit Singh Story is common in all as the fort is somewhat related to him and mahraja ranjit singh is very famous, influence ruler in punjab in his era.. 7D movie was fab, the raining, horse riding 😁 really an awesome feeling.. then complimentary show was also good.
-Wax Museum for different different purposes, some are Pagdi Museum. It was my 2nd visit for any Wax museum after Delhi's Tussaud's in CP..
-Dance show in every hour by various punjabi dance groups, different different punjabi dance steps
-Souvenir Shop as well
-TopKhana now develop as museum where precious things were kept to show us such as coins, also replica of Kohinoor diamond..
Etc
8. #AtariBorder : 1st of all its not wagah Border, its Atari Border and also JCP Atari. Wagah is in Pakistan side, and there is railway station on that name too..
For Attari border you need to take a pvt cab (best), also state buses, auto also ply..
Leave around 3 pm as it take 40-45 min for cabs to reach there from Amritsar to Atari.. just 30 min show but need atleast 4-5 hours
Early arrival means nearby seat to road to see the activities.. i forgot many things from here and many important points .. well just try to not to taky any baggage, buy flags from road side specially at Toll Tax it will be cheaper for you as compared to shop near Atari Border. There is stirct rules to be followed, if you are any kind of VIP you have to follow BSF instructions, if you want seat near to Border side better register by any defence personal from Amritsar, they will give you some pass (dont know the whole procedure), really a nice place to be active patriotic, these few Anti Nationalist must visit these places 😂, but i have more interest in pakistan side as there is very less rush, only Pakistani but in India side there were huge huge numbers of Foreigners around 100+, many of them dancing on Indian Songs, 1 foreigner crosses the border too just before the ceremony starts.. i was literally thinking if Tourist Visa is available for Pakistan, i will surely visit there too... Just to eat some lovely afghani chicken, kashmir, pak girls, mohenjo daro, karachi, one of famous hindu temple there too..
Well these are the places where i visited and important one is listed above.. many places you may self find that after discussing it with locals if you have enough time..
Amritsar trip is hardly 2-3 days trip, full 3 days not half..
Pics to be attached soon for every places describe above..
For any info just comment
Thanks

1. Auto: Autos available from both side entrance/exit, it is better to exit from other side (pf8) rather than pf1 side if u are going to Golden Temple, as from pf1 side they will charge more and will go via Over bridge then in front of other side entry/exit road... So better to exit from other side (Pf8) and book your auto at 10-15Rs per head
2. Taxis: as usual its big city hence Ola, Uber available easily, and also many other pvt taxis
3. Bus: here i am talking about bus
...
more...
service provided by Golden Temple Trust/Board etc. If you exit from Pf1 side you will see many yellow color buses available and depart in every 30 min after filling for Golden Temple, nearby it..
.
So you may choose any of the option above, if less luggage then go for Bus, if more luggage prefer Autos and for comfort prefer Taxis
Thanks

Google enabled station, WiFi available.
Sightseeing can be covered in a single day or two if time is managed properly.
1. Golden Temple, near about 3km from rly stn, can be accessed by auto, e-rickshaws. Very beautiful temple surrounded by Amrit Sarovar(hence the city name is Amritsar). Evening time is more crowded, better plan early morning visit. Langar service is 24 hours.
2.
...
more...
Durgiana Temple, a temple similar to Golden Temple as it is surrounded by water. Subsidised soft drinks are available near the temple.
3. Wagah border-- A powerpacked, adrenaline raiser programme which will shell out the patriot in you.Highly recommended show which takes place every evening around 6 pm. But you need to be there atleast an hour before to get a comfortable seat. The retreat show arranged by BSF and Pak Rangers is a true delight to watch.
Wagah border can be reached by booked auto or taxi. If going by shared auto, make sure to return early, as shared auto are far less after the show.
4. This tip is for foodies--- Do NOT forget to taste the langar food, it is simply delicious. If possible you can help by providing services like cutting vegetables and serving food to other pilgrims.
Kesar-da-dhaba and Brothers Dhaba, authentic Ambarsari Kucha and various paranthas. Kucha point is another delight for ambarsariya kulcha. Lubhaya Ram for Aam papad, very tasty. Makhan restaurant for fish lovers.

Retiring rooms are there, but it was not showing on IRCTC.
However, you can find hotels and Dharmshalas at reasonable price, nearby Golden Temple.
