Amritsar is holy pilgrimage not only for sikh religion people but all religion people around the world. Sri Harmandir Sahib or Golden Temple name due to its golden coating on Temple architecture was designed by Guru Arjan Sahib.It was executed by Guru Ramdas Sahib under the supervision of Baba Budha ji.

The beautiful architecture  is situated at the centre of  large water. Amritsar can be reached by train, road or by flight. Temple is open for 24 hrs and is worth visiting its two times, in morning and one at night when the lights are lit up. It is just an amazing view to be watched especially during Diwali.


During the period of Maharaja Ranjit Singh golden coating was done on the temple.

Temple has door on each sides of North, South, East and West. Ghanta Ghar is the main entrance where you wash your feet. Amrit sarovar, on one side of pool, it has facilities for male and on other side has facilities for female to take bath, Harmandir Sahib, which is the main Temple itself, Akal Takht, where Guru Granth Sahib is kept at night, Central Sikh Museum which includes large gallery of paintings is at second floor. 

Inside scene from Harmandir Sahib is telecast for people to watch. Holy Book is sung by the Sikh people and a whisk is continually waved above the book where the people took blessing from God.



 Another major complex of Golden Temple is  Guru-ka-Langar, somewhat called dinning hall where free food is serve to all visitors irrespective of their caste, and  religion.

It was just an amzing trip to Amritsar next planning was to visit Jallianwala Bagh and Govindgarh Fort. We packed our luggage after eating Guru Langar and on next day took flight back to Delhi.
