The entire Golden Temple complex is an amazing experience in itself. Very Well maintained. Very helpful are the people involved in managing this place. Take some time out to sit in here and be at peace.

Visit to the Golden temple is a pilgrimage . We visited during the evening so the marble floor was cool on the feet. The langar is a must . Soaked in the divine atmosphere. The reflection of the temple lights on the temple pond is a beautiful sight.
