Restaurant
“Because it is located near to Golden Temple, this place is always crowded and you might have to wait for a couple of minutes for your turn. The question is, is it worth waiting? My answer is Hell YEAH! One of the iconic and probably the oldest restaurants, it is located in the heart of Amritsar. Things must Try - Lachedaar Parantha and maa ki daal (famous)”
