To worship inside is a unique opportunity, very pious place. The Granth Sahib path was heart touching.

It is the place where the holy book and weapons of Gurus are kept...it is in the same complex as the Golden Temple. Due to the heavy rush and line to enter the temple we decided to offer our obeisance at the akhal takht only. Vice nice and peaceful.

The Akal takht is part of the Golden Temple complex and is exactly opposite to the Harmandir Sahib. It keeps the Guru Granth Sahib ( holy text of Sikhs ) and has some historical/religious artifacts to view. If you are visiting Golden Temple, it makes sense to visit it.

The Gurudwara is just magnificent. The sanctity of the place will never make you forget it. The 'Langar' food is tasty and there is a lot to check-out in the market in the Gurudwara compound.

Spell bound by the place.Remembered the supreme sacrifice by the sikh people . The importance of this place is its purity. Mesmerised by its magical beauty and the inner strength we get when we are there.
