Pretty close to the Golden Temple, the Durgiana temple is built like a smaller version of the former. Significantly less crowded that the Golden Temple, the Durgiana Temple is also easier to get to as it is barely a kilometer away from the Golden Temple. The temple closes in the afternoon around 12 and opens at about 3pm again so... More

Visit to get blessing but don't expect much. When I visited their was lot of construction activity going on. The only difference are the beautiful sculptures in the pond surrounding the temple.

Durgiana Temple was one thing on our cards, ever since we planned a trip to Amritsar. The first impression of this place is that it is a smaller replica of the Golden Temple, but very different from inside. There are numerous other temples in the premises as well. The overall experience was very enriching and soothing, giving peace of mind.

This was totally unexpected stop from our Wagah border trip. The temple is actually very nice to see and there is another one very near (?). So we saw the evening chanting. Not so crowded as in the Golden one.

I was looking forward to visit this temple for its rich heritage. Temple is located very close to the Hall Gate, which is one of the entry point to the walled old city. There is a small parking facility so its very convenient. A short walk of 100 meters from the road takes you to the entrance of the temple.... More

A Copy of Golden Temple (Too be honest not sure which one is a copy?). Same Golden Temple but Hindu Idols inside. There is a Sarovar similar to Golden Temple. The place also houses an 800 Years only Sheetla Devi temple..

This was a very rushed visit.... very beautiful temple.....we did a parikrama around the sarovar.... Try to avoid feeding the fish - it is punishable by a visit to the local police station ( saw a board mentioning this).... Hope to visit here at a more leisurely pace next time......

This would be an exceptional site if the Golden Temple wasn't in Amritsar. Even with the Golden Temple a ten minute tuk tuk ride away it is worth spending 45 minutes or so walking around. Go from 7:30-9:30 AM when they have the devotional chanting. There are lots of little Hindu temples attached to this Temple. Photogenic but could be... More
