You will feel blessed to visit this place within golden temple premises. The Akal Takht was built by Guru Hargobind as a place of justice and consideration of temporal issues; the highest seat of earthly authority of the Khalsa (the collective body of the Sikhs) and the place of the jathedar, the highest spokesman of the Sikhs.

This is the icing on the cake during the trip to Harmandir Sahib. It is something that gives you the experience of peace and tranquility irrespective of the time of day or the season of visit. You are comfortable even if it is a blazing hot summer day, muggy and humid monsoon afternoon or a winter night!

Ambiance of the place is simply amazing. One feels the presence of God, once he enters the premises. The Prashad is so delicious that one will remember it for a life time.

The Akal Takht was built on a site where there existed only a high mound of earth across a wide open space. It was a place where Hargobind played as a child. The original takht was a simple platform on which Hargobind would sit in court to receive petitions and administer justice. He was surrounded by insignia of royalty such... More
