What to expect

Amritsar is deemed as the holy city of the Sikhs and home to their most sacred shrine, the Darbar Sahib or Golden Temple. The city poses as a significant regional market centre for agricultural goods and is characterized by some of the most religious, historical as well as contemporary sites of importance.

Food is widely regarded as a great way of understanding a culture. And what's better than learning how to cook it with a local family in their kitchen! Visit a local family to understand the Punjabi way of cooking. Get to know how they expertly use spices (not just the hot spicy ones!), make yummy curries, and bake the perfect chapati. And at the end, relish it with the family over some hearty conversations. Also included with the meal is a chai or herbal tea, a dessert, and bucket-full of Indian hospitality.
