So many reviews had been written. This is the place to know our rich culture and religion. Many thanks to the people of Punjab, you will never feel cheated in this historic monument. (I have some bitter experience in some temples). Complete peace of mind.

Definitely a must-do pilgrimage in Amritsar. We are not Sikh, but we were most welcomed in this temple. Ladies and men must wear head coverings as respect ... men can take from the "used" covering pile or purchase for a very small amount outside of the temple. Take your time to enjoy the tranquility of this site. If you can,... More

This was our first visit to the awesome temple and we wish to visit it soon again. The place feels like heaven on earth with so many devotees round and about. The darbar was so full of blessings and positivity that even if one has to wait in the long queue and then enter its worth every bit of patience.... More
