I will be reaching amritsar at 10pm by train and visit golden temple. I have a 6am flight from amritsar airport.
Now confused about the plan. I dont want to take a hotel for just 3-4 hrs .
How can i reach airport other than taxis as those could be exhorbidently expensive during these odd hours.

You will have to depend on the taxis at that hour, it seems.

You will not have much options at Amritsar during night time. You may visit Golden Temple from Railway station. You may cover Durgiana Mandir on the way. One can spend around one hour at Durgiana Mandir.

After that you may visit Golden Temple. You may take your dinner on the way to Golden Temple. Or, if wished, you may join Langar.

You may spend rest of time at Golden Temple. It may take around 35 to 40 minutes to reach Airport. So, you may leave Temple complex at around 4 AM.

You have another option:

From railway station you may reach Golden Temple directly, request for a room till 3 AM, if got you may leave your luggage in the room, have darshan, have Langar or dinner as you wish and then proceed to airport at around 4 AM.

I want to walk from golden temple to airport.
I think it will take about 1 hr.
Would it be safe at night and are there proper signages for way to airport as there would not be people from whom i can ask for way.

If your going to walk you need to read the threads on the best hiking boots to get too. You might need some.

Take an earlier train. Or better still, come to Amritsar a day earlier.
And BTW where are you coming from to Amritsar and where are you flying to? Let's see if you can invent anything plausible.

Hey Golghar, you talk so learnedly, but when are you making a trip to Bombay next? Try to come while I am still ensconced in the city.

Check the daily routine of the Golden Temple http://www.goldentempleamritsar.org/...ndir-sahib.php. You could also consider staying at the accommodation in the temple complex. See http://www.goldentempleamritsar.org/...g-amritsar.php.
