Akal Takht is situated in the golden temple complex. it is a beautiful building very peaceful inside. Every night the guru granth is taken in a procession from the golden temple to the Akal Takht.

There nothing to dislike about this place.. The view of Golden Temple from the windows is worth capturing in the memories..

“worth the wait”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2014

The golden temple is amazingly beautiful and getting in queue to visit the Akal Takht is worth the wait.
What we did not like was being followed all over by the caretakers of the temple, who would not let you sit in peace for 5 minutes and enjoy the view. They kept coming over to us and asking us to sit differently or to move on! The reason for this is a mystery to me and it definitely takes away from the visitors pleasure
