Excursion organised for students


Amritsar: The Department of Hotel Management and Tourism of Guru Nanak Dev University organised an excursion to Gurudwara Kotha Sahib-Vallah, and Haveli, a cultural village located in Amritsar for the students of BTTM (Bachelor of Tourism and Travel Management). The visit was arranged to celebrate the holy annual fair-Jorr Mela, which is a unique example of ardent faith and devotion. The shrine relates itself to the life of the ninth guru, Guru Teg Bahadur, who stayed here for 17 days. The dwellers of the village welcomed him and organised a fair. Moreover, the hidden gem needs attention from the industry players and should be a part of the Amritsar Tourist Circuit. During this trip, students experienced the rides, lip-smacking street food and bought souvenirs for their near and dear ones. Thereafter, the students visited a village themed restaurant — Haveli, enjoying snippets of the cultural heritage of Punjab. The students learnt about true Amritsar representation of Punjab’s glorious past by looking into the finer details of everything from the exquisite decor to the delicious food. The initiative was taken under the guidance of Professor in-charge Mandeep Kaur.
