Please advice itinerary for spending 3 days in amritsar. 15,16 and 17 nov(guru purab)
What all places can be visited and what should be the order?

Please let me timings for jallianwala bagh, mata temple, durgaina temple, mata temple and ram tirth. How far are these places from golden temple?

Will I get on the spot accommodation at golden temple? Or can we book it in advance? If not please suggest some budget hotel near golden temple.

Best place to have food.

Durgaina temple is about 1 km from the Darbar Sahib (Golden Temple).
Jallianwala bagh is very close to the Golden Temple (5 min. walk) and is open from 07:00 AM - 06:00 PM.

Contact the SGPC Sarai booking office for accomodation:

For food in Amritsar I liked the "Bharawan da dabba" near the Golden Temple and here are some more:

Good luck with your visit to Amritsar - a very special and historic city of Punjab.

if you are a hindu, you might be interested in visiting ram thirth. According to the wikitravel page

Quote:
Ram Tirth is a short distance of 11 kms outside the city. Consecrated by the appearance of Devi Sita, Ram Tirth had been a witness to the birth of the sons of King Rama. Making a special place in the holy scripts of ancient religions, the place was once the ashrama of saint Balmiki. The saint is believed to have scripted many of his sacred manuscripts at this place. A hut of Rishi Balmiki is still found at Ram Tirth where he once lived. After giving birth to Luv and Kush, Devi Sita used to stay at this place for a considerable period of time. The evidence of her stay still exists in the form a well which, it is believed, was dug by Hanuman. Devotees of King Rama and Devi Sita flock to this place every year to offer their prayers to the respected deities. As the locational position of the Ram Tirth is facilitated by easy accessibility, hence, the visitors conveniently reach this place of worship without any extra hassles.
