The roads are much better, but on a hot day without an AC vehicle, it would be a difficult travel. The AC in our vehicle was not working, so had a very difficult time. It takes around 4-5 hours of travel, I suppose it depends on the traffic. I understand there are Govt Benz buses between these cities.

Time taken to reach Amritsar from Chandigarh was three and half hours. Bus was very clean and comfortable. Either you can take a short nap or watch a movie and by the time you feel fresh you are at Amritsar. The bus drops you at hall gate which is very near to Golden Temple.
