The moment you enter the Temple Complex, wave of calmness surrounds you. Take a full round of the complex before entering the main Temple. Spend some time listening to Gurbani.

The Akal Takht is the temporal seat of the Sikh religion. It contrasts with the spiritual seat in the Golden Temple. It was rebuilt about 25 years ago. It has relics of the great Gurus.
