      Hello !

      I'll be landing in Amritsar mid-September before heading north to Dharamkot. What is your view on a woman spending the night there to visit around? Do you think it would be better to just stay a couple of hours and then just hopping on the bus?
      I am blonde with blue eyes - do I need to cover my head?

      If you think I can spend the night - can you recommend a cute hotel/b&b?

      Feel free to give me any piece of info you think may help me have an idea of what to expect :)

      This place used to get some very good reviews but nothing that I can see that is recent. Is it still in operation and does anybody have any feedback on what it's like now. First entry I found was in an old Lonely Planet guide. Any feedback gratefully recieved. Excluding this I'm tempted to join the pilgrims at the golden temple itself. What is the position regarding leaving and returning to the dorms as I would probably want to wander off into the city for an evening meal. I'm assuming that there is a seperat enterance for the dorms as opposed to the temple?
