Very spiritual place, take time here to absorb the atmosphere and take in not just the temple itself, but all the activities going on around the complex surrounding it - make sure to visit the kitchens. just take care in bare feet as the marble floors can be very slippery when wet - one of our group nearly slipped down...

Early morning or on a weekday the place exudes a peacefulness and good feeling that has to be experienced to be understood. Dont visit on weekends or holidays the crowds would put you off

Incredible place to find peace, silence and harmony. Within the chaos breathe is a country like India. Eating inside the temple also is an experience you should not miss. I lived in Amrtisar for 3 years and visit Harmandir sahib many times and this place is really awesome....

You can carry some water and shades, however there are people serving water and they have made arrangements for a shade over the long queues. As large volume of people visit the place therefore be prepared for some... More

This was my third visit to this sikh temple. So beautifully constructed. This place of faith is a must visit place. At the midnight there is ceremony is performed. If you are there at midnight you will have a wonderful view of the well lit temple.

Golden temple or Harmandir Sahib is the most important temple in SIkhism and open to all other sects. Do visit this place on priority when in Amritsar. Gold plated temple in the middle of the waterbody, kept clean with the help of volunteers day and night. Try and visit at night, when the crowds are less and the entire complex... More

Plan to stay a while and experience the surreal feeling of being in India and visiting such a religious location. must experience the golden building in the strong sunlight, the trees and visitors after dark. Must see the... More
