Jaadooghar Amritsar is probably the most authentic rural village experience that you will get anywhere in India. Despite its rural exteriors, the property is equipped with all modern amenities to ensure a comfortable stay. It is a beautiful farmstay located about 90 minutes from Amritsar towards Pathankot, on the way to the hills of Jammu Kashmir, surrounded by scenic countryside, farms, villages and small canals.
Jaadooghar Amritsar aims to make the farm life of Punjab accessible to discerning travelers by offering an authentic rural experience. It aims to showcase the local life of the farming community and help conserve its heritage, culture, architecture, and cuisine.
The property consists of four independent cottages built in a traditional mud house style with well-furnished interiors. Its architecture takes inspiration from the traditional techniques of the land that dates back to the Harappan Civilization (3000 BC), characterized by the extensive use of mud and fire-baked bricks. The cottages are built in traditional village-style houses using fire-baked bricks, mud mortar, and plastered with a customized mud-straw mix. The architecture blends perfectly with the rural landscape of Punjab.
Only four cottages on the property ensure that your stay at Jaadooghar Amritsar is a very exclusive, tranquil, and relaxing experience, secluded from crowded touristy locations nearby. Spend your time here walking, cycling, taking a tractor ride or bullock cart ride, turban tying, kite flying, visiting the village Gurudwara and partaking in farming. A small canal, about 400 fully grown trees & ample birdlife at the farm make it a nature lover’s paradise. Fitness enthusiasts can choose from the various serene settings for practicing yoga and other activities.

Jaadooghar Recommends: Every Sunday special prayers and village fair is organized in the Gurudwara which is very interesting to observe.
Tractor and Bullock Cart Rides
Bullock carts are an increasingly rare sight these days. Enjoy a special ride through the farm lands, village streets and observe rural life in slow motion. If you are lucky, the driver of the bullock cart may even invite you to his house for a cup of fresh milk! 😉
Tractors played a major role in the success of the Green Revolution in Punjab and became an inseparable part of the life of Punjabi farmers.
