Historic fort and it’s the biggest one in Amritsar. Walking distance from middle of town and in the top 3 interesting sites to see after Golden Temple.

This 19th century fort, which is built on forty-three acres of land, has recently been developed as an entertainment and educational venue showcasing Punjabi culture and history. Although more of a commercial enterprise than most of India's forts, it's a fun place for both children and adults. As well as a variety of museums and craft shops, there are folk dance performances and in the evenings a sound and light show takes place.

Gobindgarh fort is a fort deeply attached with the history of India and Amritsar. The fort has been restored to show visitors its former glory and power from the time of Maharaja Ranjit Singh. I expected the typical experience of any fort in India. However, this was nothing like the others. Gobindgarh is equipped with a brilliant 3D light and sound projection show, where the walls of one part of the fort appear as of they are speaking to you. This show narrates the history of the fort and makes it fun to understand. Another great attraction is the exceptional 7D show, Sher-e-Punjab, that tells is the story of Maharaja Ranjeet Singh. Other than this, the food stalls are excellent.

We visited Gobindgarh fort just for casual look. But found amazing and extended our visit for another couple of hours. 7D show was beyond our expectation. Laser show is a must watch. I recommend one shud see the ceiling of Toshkhana. Restoration work is done with utmost care. food is very reasonably priced

Gobindgarh Fort is an excellent place to visit in Amritsar. We visited this place in the month of February 2017 and we enjoyed the 7D and the whispering walls show there. there is much more for kids also. Food is pretty good. Recommend going at the time of sunset.
