“India - Golden Temple - Must visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Golden Temple - Hari Mandir - Gurudwara is simply amazing. The atmosphere around is calm, peaceful and positive. Despite the number of people, there was no pushing or pulling as we have experienced in number of famous and popular mandirs.
The place has tranquilizing experience. The place is so divine one gets inner satisfaction.
Unfortunately, we did not have tour guide to get information about the temple. We will definitely visiting it once again. If you are in India and around Delhi, you got to visit the Golden Temple.

“A place of solace”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

This place doesn't require any introduction or recommendation! It is what it is... Gurudwara is peaceful and positive. I visited it on a Saturday mid morning, 11ish and had to queue up for almost 2 hours to visit it. I was later told by locals that the better time to visit is around 8pm. As I had read that the gurudwara gets lit up at nights, I visited to find ongoing cleaning sans any lighting. Never mind that!The marble gets hot during the day and queue gets longer, so I shall recommend you to eat something before visiting (to avoid fainting) and do carry a bottle of water. Visitors with crying infants and dizzy visitors are allowed to cut the queue. And yeah, as always, the atta halwa as prashad was just divine! :)

“Sunrise can be the busiest time...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

We went twice, once at sunrise which was beautiful but incredibly busy, and the other at midday which was hot and still busy but not as much.
Despite the number of people it is tranquil and relaxing, very beautiful all around and a must see when in Amritsar. You can but a head covering for 10 rupees from people on the way in.
