Model Answer:

Introduction: and Name of the city?
Well, I am travel bug who loves traveling different places and I have visited numerous places but the city that I visited and I loved the most and I would love to visit again is definitely Amritsar.

Where is it located?
It is in my own state and hardly 100 kilometres away from where I live. Actually, Golden Temple is the most historical and sacred place of sikhs religion and it is situated in Amritsar.

For that reason, this city is of great significance to sikhs and recently I visited this place with my family. We were there to pay the obeisance and it took us around 2-3 hours as it was extremely crowded at this place but i enjoyed the views of this golden temple and we also enjoyed listening to the religious music.

After visiting Golden Temple, we decided to visit the nearby place which is Jalian wala bagh.

What did you do there?
Jalian wala bhag is a very important place to visit in Amritsar because it has great historical significance. Thousands of innocent people died here when General Dyer opened fire and people visit here to pay tribute and remember all those who died unduly. After visiting this place in the evening, we visited the Attari border.

It is actually a frontier of India and Pakistan and the retreat ceremony is extremely popular. Whosoever visit Amritsar, definitely pay visit here and enjoy this special ceremony of the army men in the evening.

It was an amazing display of power of the soldiers and I loved it. The best thing about Amritsar is that there are many things for entertainment as well. In fact, Amritsar city is famous for its popular foods as well but because we were on a short trip of one day only.

Would you like to visit it again?
For that reason, we couldn’t enjoy many things and that’s the reason why I am planning to visit this city again with my family or friends and this time I will definitely enjoy the famous food of Amritsar as well as buy few things because it I extremely popular for its punjabi suit, shoes and many other items that are manufactured in Amritsar.

Overall, it was a fantastic tour of this city and without any doubt, I would love to visit this place again.
