  • Good museum with an outstanding panorama of Maharaja Ranjit Singh life. Could be better maintained however. Worth and must visit.
  • Amazing history behind a great ruler! The maintenance is shoddy though!
  • When hiring auto Rickshaw to this place specifically mention them that it's near 'company bagh'. Our auto driver took us to Ranjith Singh fort. Then charged extra ₹100 to take us to the museum
  • nothing exciting. needs more effort to make this place memorable
  • Very poorly maintained. Totally in shambles...

Where to stay in Amritsar

The area of Amritsar that surrounds the Golden Temple can be an entertaining, enriching, and chaotic place to stay. A number of budget and mid-range hotels and hostels sit on the narrow streets here, providing decent rooms and some shared lodgings for pilgrims and tourists alike. The more upmarket and spacious options largely lie to the north. Hall Road offers plenty of hotels and hostels, while the most luxurious options sit to the north of the train station, primarily along Queens Road.
