Culture of amritsar

Amritsar has contributed immensely to Punjabi literature, spirituality and folk culture. It has been aptly named as ‘the home of all virtues’. The dance form of Bhangra, which is now popular all over the country and the world, is an integral part of Amritsar. Giddha is also a popular dance form among the women here. Gatka is another dance form, generally performed on religious festivals.\n\nYou can find a glimpse of the city’s culture in its various bazaars, where you can find an array of products that represent the artistic talent of the people. Amritsar is also well-known for its spicy and succulent array of dishes that include channa bhatura, multi-layered parathas, mutton tikka, barbecued chicken, seekh kabab and fried fish. It's cuisine also includes lip-smacking sweets like gur ka halwa, pinnis, and balushahis.
