The place is now a visual and aesthetic delight. With the first phase of the beautification project having been completed at a cost of Rs 160 crore in October this year, the second phase would involve giving a facelift to all streets leading to Darbar Sahib which would get a heritage look. In the next five years, the whole city will sport a heritage look.advertisementDuring his interaction with the media in Amritsar in October, Punjab’s Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Badal showed the galleries in the Golden Temple complex that would acquaint visitors with the history and essence of Sikhism, besides live streaming of rituals from inside the temple. “People from across the world visit Amritsar. It had always on my mind to give this city such a makeover that it would stand out in terms of heritage and preservation. Look at the way heritage is preserved abroad. There is no political agenda to undertake this exercise. In fact, several leaders from different opposition parties have congratulated me on this,” he says.3) Wedding Wise: DecemberWant a fairytale wedding, but don’t know how to turn it into reality?
