I expect to visit Amritsar again in 2018 - for three nights, 7th, 8th & 9th April. This visit I would really like to stay at one of the Niwas in the Golden Temple Complex.

Have looked at booking online at This will not work. This site restricts booking to a max 2 nights (I am 3) and does not support single occupancy of rooms (I am traveling alone).

So...I am just thinking of turning up and going to the booking desk as a Foreign (UK) Tourist and seeing if I can get something on arrival. I don't care about having A/C. Fan would be good. En-suite is not essential, however a private room is preferred.

Question is: Am I likely to get something with this plan or is there a reasonable chance that they will be completely full or have Dormitory only?

Thanks in advance for any advice

I visited the Golden Temple again last week, and was struck by the sheer number of visitors, always a long queue of 1,000 plus to visit the inner sanctum of the Temple, early morning to late night. As most were Sikhs, I imagine that the accomodation at the Temple for religious visits as opposed to tourist purposes must be in high demand at all times...

Just my impression, I cannot say for sure. I stayed at the Grand Hotel, opposite the train station, but can't recommend it!

New Akal House has around 5 rooms specifically for Foreign tourists. I am not sure if they are private rooms or on a sharing basis.

If they do not allow a tourist to book for more than 2 nights then you can book the 3rd night else where.
