The Harmandir Sahib, famous in the world as the Golden Temple, is Sikhism’s holiest shrine, visited by millions of pilgrims and tourists from all over the world.

The temple's architecture is beautiful beyond imagination and the serene sarovar that surrounds the temple, the holy lake that is believed to consist of Amrit or holy water, adds to the glory of the temple complex. Harmandir Sahib also houses the Guru Granth Sahib, the holy text of Sikhism.

Remember that while inside the temple, it is mandatory to cover your head at all times. Also, eating food at the langar, a common kitchen where food is served to all the visitors, is an experience not to be missed. A trip to Amritsar is incomplete without paying a visit to the Golden Temple. Even if you’re not a devotee, a visit to the temple is a must for a truly awe-inspiring experience.
