1 Rock Garden, Chandigarh
This bizarre and seemingly haphazard sculpture garden, assembled from rubbish by a local eccentric, and saved from demolition by public support, offers a curious contrast to the ordered city that surrounds it.
2 The Golden Temple, Amritsar
One of the great sights – and sounds – of India; kirtan (devotional songs) are performed throughout the day and into the night from the breathtaking golden Harmandir, which seems to float like a beautiful gilded boat upon the sacred pool surrounding it.
3 Jallianwalla Bagh, Amritsar
Site of the infamous Amritsar massacre, in which British troops gunned down unarmed demonstrators, as retold in a dramatic sound-and-light show.
4 Border ceremony, Wagha
Shorter and more colourful than a cricket match, the border ceremony is a highly charged event, especially on Sundays, when hundreds of people gather to swap honks, chants and cheers from the Indian and Pakistani sides.
