We arrived at the temple complex and did the usual shoes off and the guide took them to the shoe storage area, then we walked through the cleansing water and continued through the arch, and there it was the temple in all its glory. The Sikh religion welcomes all to visit and understand their way of life even to visit... More

If you have ever wished to be close to God then this is the place. Pilgrims flock in there tens of thousands every day. True to this, was the same on our visit. As you walk up the stairs and see infront the Gurdwara Sahib Ji your heart is filled with warmth and humbleness. Never have I felt such feelings.... More

Divine, beautiful and serene trip as always. You would get your peace of mind here ...Go just sit there for couple of hours and look around...Everyone you would see would be fighting their own battles....But all battles come to conclusion at this place.

a real 'wonder of the world' site. Leave your shoes in the kiosk just outside. Don a head covering provided at the entrance. Paddle through the 'foot wash' . Then enjoy this truly spectacular site. It's a good idea to come mid evening to get inside the temple (the queues are less than during the day) and to catch the... More

This was one of the most wonderful experiences that we had during our travels in Northern India. The architecture is spectacular, and it all feels very spiritual. We were made very welcome and it felt special to be able to take part in the ceremony.

We waited on line to go inside and then up. After we came out it was morning already and the lights were off, the... More
