“Divine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

This is a must visit place when in Amritsar. Truly Divine. As soon a you enter there is this beautiful temple. It looks more beautiful during the night. The place is well maintained and everything systematic. Though it was bit cold that day but still it was a satisfying experience.

“A must visit for anyone.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

From the moment you step onto the temple grounds, you will be taken aback by the beauty of the Golden Temple. Walking barefoot when it is freezing cold, and lining up and pushing through the extremely long lines are definitely worth it. There is something absolutely magical about this place!

“So Divine....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

My first visit to Golden Temple. As soon as you enter the premises, there is a divine feel to it. With Gurbani playing in the background, the place was so soothing and peaceful.

I will pay a visit every year.

“One of the most beautiful places I have ever seen”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

The Golden Temple sits in the middle of the "Amritsar," the "Pool of Nectar," in which devout Sikhs bathe to wash away their sins. Enclosed in the Temple--which is sheathed with solid gold--is the holy of holies of the Sikh Religion, a reverently preserved copy of the Sikh scriptures. Surrounding the temple are buildings housing Sikh religious institutions, including a large refectory in which all who wish it may be fed nutritious vegetarian meals 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. My wife and I both found our visit to this holy place one of the most moving and authentically spiritual experiences we had ever had.
