Must not miss

There are two times not to be missed: 4am and 8pm when the sacred book is taken out and later out away. Act and dress respectfully, this is a sacred place to be enjoyed by all.

Often overlooked as the Golden Temple catches the eye, but the Akal Takht within the grounds of the Golden Temple is a beautiful place of peace and tranquility. Now restored after the Indian Army stormed the temple in 1984 and riddled the place with bullets.

located at the golden temples complex this is the place to take the holy bath and a dip in the tank. The steps are quite slippery but they have installed metal chains to help keep your balance.

Always a great experience. The serenity of the place is palpable. People visit in hordes for a multitude of reasons but this is perhaps the only place I have been in where no one does anything out of turn, no one demands and yet everyone finds comfort and solace of some nature.

Inside the Golden Temple complex, this is one of the 5 takhts of Sikh religion. Situated opposite to the gate of the main temple, this gurudwara marks the symbol of justice. Essentially it is a seat of the kings. The highest council of the Sikh faith sits here. The Adi Granth moves from the Hanrmandir Sahib every night to the... More
