This is one of the 10 places in India that you have to visit. Golden Temple is not only holy place of Sikh community but it's pride of every Indian. You can do "Seva" (help) in Lunger for cocking lunger food. Lunger food is amazing.

Akal means Kal (time) can not have effect on it. That is soul which is imperishable. Beauty of the whole complex is doubled after evening.with light decoration of temple.

You will observe the ultimate peace here. There is a power which surrounds you. When ever you go there spare enough time to sit down and listen to gurbani it will shoo away all your tension.
