Train from Bombay

by BootyUK

Hi,

I am taking the Golden Temple Express from Mumbai Central to Jalandhar City in mid-August....I've tried looking on Indian Railways website for an idea of what the air-con carriages are like (do they exsist??) Just wondered how unbareable the journey will be in the heat, or would it be a pleasant way to travel up??

Thanks,

CB - UK

The trains are the best way to get around India if you got a long journey to do.

Air-con Carriages are ok much cleaner than the 2nd class sleeper but the same layout. If you going overnight take a blanket with you it might get cold with the air-con on all night And take plenty of food & drink with you. The food on the train is not good.

Good journey.

Hi!
You may log on to : www.irctc.co.in : the Indian Railways site, for your in-line bookings & all kind of enquiries.
Bombay (now known as MUMBAI) to JALLANDHAR (in Punjab) journey is almost 24hrs. long and it's the peak of summer til next 2 months, temp. souring to 42*C or even more during day time.
Air-Conditioned compartments are of 3 type : AC-1st class; AC-2nd Class & AC-3 Tier. AC-2nd class would be alright for you, and fair should be in the range of Indian Rs.2500/- or so per person between the 2 desinations.
Happy Travelling.
Take Care, bye

You can book yourself in 3-Tier AC (which at IRCTC website is classified as Third AC). The ticket will be affordable (compared to 2-Tier) and the journey comfortable. You'll have a good experience travelling for 2 nights and a day. You can even try Paschim Express that gives you 2 days and 1 night - so if you feel like sleeping for 2 nights in the train, go with Golden Temple Express. If you prefer to sit for 2 days (and see more out of your window), book yourself in Paschim Express.

Travel Tips for Amritsar

Temperature in June

by l_joo

41 is average for June. Too hot to me, eventough I came from tropical country, still felt uncomfortable, dry especially. Picture is our bus overnight from New Delhi where my partner Andy complaint for no air-con. It was cheated by the travel agent in New Delhi that they told us better to take fan bus, and we believed their story. Anyway, a good experience to sweat all night long.

Collecting money

by l_joo

The very last scene of this series of custom tips is this scene where I saw two Sikhs so busy to collect all those money donated by all the devotees. Two of them collecting the money while another person spraying some kind of aromatic liquid onto those money. I appologize for my ignorance about the Sikh custom, this is just my one time experience of Amritsar. I hope you understand.

Golden Temple - A Little History

by SmileyLeSa

The best time to visit the Golden Temple is early in the morning on a weekday. Sundays and weekends in general are very crowded.

The Golden Temple has seen religious-political turmoil. The worst in 1984 when the Government set-up a military operation and attacked the temple due to conflict between the Akali Leadership (a movement for Gurdwara reform). This lead to the tragic event of Indira Gandhi being assassinated by her Sikh bodyguard.

Jallianwallah History

by mariocibelli

PART ONE:

"Politically, as well as economically, the postwar years proved depressing to India's high expectations. After the was British officials, who in the first flush of patriotism had abandoned their ICS posts to rush to the front, returned to oust the Indian subordinates acting in their stead and carried on their prewar jobs as though nothing had changed in British India. Indian soldiers also returned from battlefronts to find that back at home they were no longer treated as invaluable allies but reverted immediately to the status of "natives." Most of the soldiers recruited during the war had come from Punjab, which, with only 7 percent of India's population, had supplied over 50 percent of the combatant troops shipped abroad.

It is thus hardly surprising that the flash-point of postwar violence that shook India in the spring of 1919 was Punjab province. The actual issue that served to rally millions of Indians, arousing them to a new level of disaffection from British rule, was the government of India's hasty passage of the Rowlatt Acts early in 1919. These "black acts," as they came to be called, were peacetime extensions of the wartime emergency measures passed in 1915 and had been rammed through the Supreme Legislative Council over the unanimous opposition of its Indian members.

Indian leaders viewed the autocratic enactment of such legislation, following the victorious conclusion of a war in which India had so loyally supported Britain, as a confession of British treachery and duplicity and the abandonment of the promised policy of reform in favour of a new wave of repression. .

Golden Temple - Ber Baba Budha Sahib (tree shrine)

by Willettsworld

As you walk through the main entrance and into the complex, there is this tree shrine to the right beside the pool. Baba Budha Ji camped beneath the tree to perform the service of digging the holy tank and construction work of the Golden Temple.
