Living in Amritsar

Amritsar's beautiful name is befitting of a city that gleams with some of the most breathtaking architecture ever built. It is with good reason that people often call it the Golden City. Living in Amritsar, you will be a resident of the spiritual home of the Sikh religion and one of the administrative centers of the Indian Punjab. The city of one million sprawls out from the famous Golden Temple, a key Sikh place of worship and one of the great temples of the world. Expats living in Amritsar will also be immediately directed to the serene Jallianwala Bagh Public Garden, which has a sad but important place in India's history. Life in Amritsar has all the intensity synonymous with India โ€“ average summer temperatures are in the mid-thirties, the food culture is rich and increasingly internationalized and the pace of development is fast. This is a city for those with truly global minds.

Moving to Amritsar

Unless you are familiar with India, moving to Amritsar is an intense and stimulating experience. The intensity of colors, sounds, smells and heat form a heady cocktail โ€“ arriving in the city is an incredible experience. The Indian tourism department's catchphrase is in fact 'Incredible India' and one immediately realizes why. The city has the potential to overwhelm. InterNations forums have plenty of advice and accounts from other expatriates to help you make a smooth transition, and the Expat Magazine is also a useful point of reference, providing articles on everything from expat insurance to cross-cultural communication. You may also find on arrival that the discussion groups and forums on the InterNations website are a helpful source of both tips and of the experiences of other expatriates who have relocated to the Golden City.

The Challenge of Working in Amritsar

Working in Amritsar is full of challenges and joys, in roughly equal measure. It often takes expatriates a little while to settle into the vibrant culture, as there is a lot to take in at once. InterNations is there to help you to avoid cultural shock and you'll find accounts of other expats settling into new cultures make your transition smooth and enjoyable. Getting to grips with the city is a wonderful experience โ€“ you won't quickly forget your first taste of Indian spiced tea or the sight of the Golden Temple reflected in the water at night. Amidst the intensity of life and work in Amritsar, though, many expats welcome the chance to get in touch with the city's international community. InterNations makes this easier through discussion groups and forums. In fact, many users find private correspondence through the InterNations online community leads to chances to meet up and socialize with other expatriates in the city. In such an overwhelming environment as Amritsar, that is a chance you might well find yourself savoring from time to time.
