But even if you park here you would still need to hire a rick or something, or do you plan to walk?
In Sep 2011, we parked our erstwhile Linea and hired a cycle rickshaw to visit the Golden Temple. Last year, we parked Linea at the hotel, which was a stone's throw from the Golden Temple and walked around. But, during our ensuing visit in this Sep., I don't want to drive on those congested roads to reach the hotel. Hence, I wish to park at MLCP and walk the distance.

The condition of the parking lot didnt look too appealing either from outside
In Sep 2011, I parked Linea there for whole day for just ₹ 40. It was very spacious and centrally located. If it is functional and open for public, I wish to park my XUV 500 there. :)

I will update soon. I too don't wish to wrestle with all the commotion on the streets, will park at MLCP and then take one of those battery operated ricks to the temple.

I think you guys need this. I am attaching image. The way is from main GT road that goes straight into the parking lot. Parking lot is fully functional and best place to park car.

The moment you take left from GT Road (NH1) you will find flyover that will go straight inside parking lot.

No, once you take flyover that will lead you to parking lot only, i don't think there is any other leaf, that goes to town hall.

We had tasted Amritsari Kulcha at Brothers Dhaba [the left (new) one] in Sep 2011. This time, I will try the other [right - old]. :)

Just returned from Amritsar.

Had great darshan at the temple, Due to the delay in traffic after visiting Wagha, we reached pretty late. Around 10.15pm or so. Watched the procession (palki), and carrying of the Guru Granth Sahib away from the main temple in this palki. Hardly took about 30 mins. Though initially I hadn't planned this or was aware of it, a very kind Sikh gentleman insisted we stay and witness it. So we did. Later, that same gentleman greeted us when we were collecting our shoes and confirmed that we had seen it and taken some pics. Thanked him again for his gesture.

Jaliawallah bagh, some renovation work is ongoing and they have now closed the historic pathway that was the earlier entrance. Now you make your way in through a gallery of sorts that has various pictures, newspaper cuttings, poems etc. related to the incident. Photography is not allowed in here.

At Wagah, I had seriously underestimated the crowd! My brother-in-law insisted that we take a pass, while I was planning to go the general route. He made some calls to his contacts in Amritsar and arranged for the passes. In hindsight, it was a good decision. But the pass we got didn't mention our vehicle info. So had to park it in the general parking and then wrestle with the rest of the crowd. Once inside, there is a separate entry for pass holder.

In all there are 6 seating sections,
1. vip (adjacent to the border gates on either side of the road) - chair seating
2. foreign nationals (adjacent to vip section, on left of the gate) - step seating
3. pass holder (adjacent to the above, only on left)
4. general - for women (next to 3, only on left)
5. general - for men (next to 4, on left)
6. general - for men (opposite 5, on right)

In case you are planning to get a pass, please make sure you get it for the vehicle as well. That way, you can bypass the huge crowd and park very near to the venue.

Like Simar had uploaded the map (Thanks for that Simar!), the entry to the MLCP flyover is just after a left turn from NH15(NH2). There is another smaller turn that takes you to the city instead. The left for MLCP is well marked, so don't turn unless you see the green overhead board mentioning the way to MLCP.

Sir, that is the only flyover in and out of the MLCP. Also, I did enjoy the kulcha at Brother's. It was good but the service was very slow. Maybe it was the rains. :)
