The tour to Amritsar is incomplete without the visit to Golden Temple. Tips: Visit the place in the morning/day & again view it in the night, you get to see two different picturesque views of the same place.

A huge open space in the entrance of golden temple. Surrounded with many shops where one can buy souvenir and special things of Amritsar. Also need to park your shoe there. Very neat and clean place.
