Visit to a wrestling ‘Akhara’
Amritsar has a long tradition of Indian wrestling, also called Pehlwani. This visit allows you to explore a local Akhara, where the wrestlers train.
Both Amritsar and the state of Punjab have a long history of Pehlwani, or Indian wrestling and it is an incredibly popular sport in the area. By visiting an Akhara during your time in Amritsar you can enjoy watching the wrestlers, who are traditionally called Pahalwans, train and practice particular skills and moves. These training grounds are commonly named after their founders and act as a school for the wrestlers. This is a truly local experience as it is a sport that belongs specifically to the area.
