Location : Hotel Ritz Plaza came into existence in 1963 and is spread over the aristocratic on Mall Road, Amritsar's very elite locale. It is within easy access of the railway station and the international airport.

A few miles from India's Northwestern border is the holy city of Amritsar, known for the Golden Temple, the most sacred Gurudwara-shrine of the Sikhs and the tank called "the pool of immortality". Guru Shri Ram Das the fourth Sikh Guru, founded the city while excavating the holy tank. Guru Arjan Dev built the Temple and Maharaja Ranjit Singh, the Sikh ruler enriched the shrine and covered its dome with copper, and overlaid it with golden foil. The interior of the Temple contains fine filigree and gold-inlay work. The exterior walls are inlaid with precious stones.

According to traditional history, the Muslim saint Pir Mian Mir of Lahore, at the request of the fifth Sikh Guru Arjan Dev, laid the temple's foundation stone. However, there is no record supporting this, not even in the biographies of Pir. The recorded account says that Guru Arjun Dev laid the foundation in 1588. The Guru's followers settled down in the neighborhood and a small town called Ramdaspur quickly came up, deriving its later name, Amritsar, from the holy tank that encircles the Hari Mandir, or the Darbar Sahib, now known as the Golden Temple.
