I have visited many temples all over India but this one truly stands out for more than one reason: its design & architectural beauty which are a visual treat especially during sunrise, sunset & against the moon; its pure spiritual essence which you can only feel/experience if you sit within the temple or by the water in silence listening to...

We recently had an opportunity to visit Golden Temple. We spent couple of hours there, and I must admit it is a treat to our eyes. Every aspect of this place motivates a revisit - whether vibrancy of the environment, Guru ka Langar, cleanliness etc. I am looking forward to visit again.

Amritsar is famous for many thing in the world. Golden temple is on the top. It is one of the takhats. Very nice and clean place. Every time available tasty food. Market near the temple is very nice and food is very tasty on the resturants. One must have Kulche (amritsari naan) and lassi.

The moment you wash your feet at the entrance, there is a feeling of great clam that falls on you. Although the entire temple complex is crowded through out the day, there seems a feeling of silence and peace within. Every person you meet is gracious, and kindness flows from the hearts of the devotees.

A great sight. Best viewed in the evening after sun down when it's cooler and the temple is busy and atmospheric.
