History of Amritsar


Amritsar is one of the biggest cities of the Punjab state in India. The city was founded by the fourth Sikh Guru Ram Das in 1574 on land bought by him for 700 rupees from the proprietors of the township of Tung. Previously Guru Ram Das had started building Santokhsar Sarovar, close to the rural community of Sultanwind in 1564. It could not be finished before 1588. In 1574, Guru Ram Das constructed his home and shifted to this place. On that occasion, it was recognized as Guru DA Chakk. Amritsar conquered by the Hindus and Sikhs from time to time and most of their blessed memorials exist in and around the town. Amritsar's inner walled town has tapered roads most urbanized in the 17th and 18th century.


The blessed city of Amritsar has come to presume a particular implication in Hindu cosmology because of assorted fabulous and past relations. The town is a strange instance of a careful planning with exceptional regional segmentations called Katras. Amritsar is mainly near and dear to Hindus, as it’s supposed that the twin kids of emperor Rama, along with their mother Mata Sita spent their premature infancy in the ashram of Bhagwan Maharishi Balmiki ji in the land of Amritsar, now recognized as Ram Tirath.
