This festival is also known as the start of the spring harvest season. In such an auspicious time, it makes sense to plan a trip to India and experience the celebrations in person.
The ideal places to come and feel the warmth of this festival is in the Punjab region. This region is full of rich history, famous religious places and picturesque landscapes. Once here, you can experience the dancing, singing, wearing of colorful traditional outfits and enjoy the numerous parades that take place during the occasion of Baisakhi.
The best place to feel Baisakhi is in the city of Amritsar, the spiritual capital of Sikhism. The city was founded by Guru Ram Das, the fourth Sikh guru, in 1577. This place is famous for many historical and religious places, the most revered amongst them being the Golden Temple.
Apart from this, tourists flock to this city to view the flag lowering ceremony at the Wagah border. This event takes place after sunset between India and Pakistan and lasts for 45 minutes, where all visitors are kept enthralled with the goings on of the soldiers from the two sides.
Another tourist attraction of this city is the Jallianwala Bagh. Turned into a public garden, the place houses a memorial built to commemorate the massacre at the hands of the British forces in 1919. The British soldiers had opened fire and killed hundreds of men, women and children gathered in this garden to celebrate the Punjabi New Year.
Other must visit places, once in Punjab, are the royal city of Patiala and Anandpur Sahib, an important pilgrimage destination for the Sikhs.
