This temple is a must Visit In Amritsar. Maintained spotlessly clean in spite of the number of people visiting. Long queues. The Temple is ethereally beautiful when lit up in the night. Do not miss

The history here is so fascinating, the Golden Temple is beautiful, the people are so friendly and inquisitive, and the music playing around you is hypnotic. I also found the best shopping in all of India in some of the little souvenir stores that surround it. The streets are classic crazy India... More

This place will take you to a different spiritual level. You will feel like wanting to come back. When you leave you will take a piece of place with you and most likely will keep coming back.

This place is a must visit in Amritsar. We visited the temple twice - afternoon and night. It looks much beautiful in the night. Plus it is cooler and more peaceful later. Keep in mind that the darshan might take time depending on the queue length. It took us almost 2 hours. We also had lunch from the langar. It... More
