Situated in front of main entrance of Golden Temple,this white majestic towering structure is awesome.inside it's clean calm and houses The Guru Granth Sahib at night after Golden temple closes. In the backyard of it,there are many rooms where Granthis recites Granth Sahib continuously.

It is very spacious, very clean, very helpful karsevak or volunteers. No body searches to enter. A relaxing and prayer filled atmosphere. Open for very many hrs of day and night too...No jostling . Great to see devotees praying to religious books. Worth emulating by students.
