We forget everything outside once you enter in the golden temple campus. We are in a new world with the culture of Tibet. Temple complex is a wonderful world. Beautiful photo shots only everywhere. You can take photos with students. Really wonderful.

Popularly known as the golden temple (as referred by the locals), this sets the stage for learning about the Buddhist monks. The huge statues are breathtaking for first time visitors. It is prayer time between 1-2pm and visitors are not allowed inside. But it is another opportunity to see the monks thronging the temple in huge numbers and seated row... More

Inside the monastery there is a Golden temple and it has a life size Buddha, the place is very calm and quite, maximum time to visit the whole place is half an hour. As you can see this is not an attraction or picnic spot so we need to respect the temple and the people over there without disturbing them.... More

Every bit of this place has something to say. The more time one spends here, peaceful it becomes within the self. If you have an interest in photography than sky is the limit. Of course once should be careful not to disrupt or disturb the prayer or meditation of the monks. The large prayer hall with a prayer or session... More

A very clean place but where ever there is interaction with the locals there is filth and unhygienic conditions - especially the Indian run hotels - the Tibetans have kept the place as clean as they would keep their country and as a replica of their lifestyles if they were in Tibet. A photographers delight

Post visits to so many Monasteries in India, this one really impresses. The magnitude of the halls is excellent. Takes your breath away. Golden Monastery as many say, its certainly the most impressive points to visit in this region. It has an attached University also.
