The place is amazing and I am so glad we put it with the madness that surrounds it. I can't imagine there is a quiet time to visit, but it's certainly not around 9pm as the entire area was just insanely busy. At night, the lighting on the temple make it look very pretty.

Golden temple is the biggest & Chief Gurudwara in India. Lustre of Gold can be seen from miles. This is really worth seeing in all ways.

Being a localite, have visited this place many times during varied seasons. Now when I have moved out of city, this is one place that I am bound to visit during every visit to Amritsar. Very well managed. It's good at any time of the day but if you have time, visit during night hours between 9-10. little less crowded... More

A trip to Amritsar is incomplete if you do not visit this beauty!! Carrying a legacy from 1500 CE, this place is mostly called as Harmandir Sahib, which literally means 'Temple of Gods". Best time to visit is during evenings, as you can get some splendid views. Also the rush is quite less during this time. As time was our... More

I really didn't know what to expect as I had ever visited a Sihk temple before. Plenty of Buddhist temples, but not a sihk temple. I was impressed with this temple's beauty, a little surprised that they made us take our shoes off and put on protective coverings over our feet before entering the temple, but enjoyed the experience.

Impeccably maintained & well organised inspite of huge crowds.. Absolutely tranquil & calm inside. No pushing & jostling & getting thrown out as in some other religious places.. But be prepared to wait in an organised queue for pretty long..
