The Harmandir Sahib, leading in the world as the Golden Temple, is Sikhism’s divine shrine, visited by millions of travelers and sightseers from all over the world.

The temple's architecture is impressive away thought and the serene Sarovar that surrounds the temple, the holy lake that is considered to consist of Amrit or holy water, adds to the glory of the temple obsession. Harmandir Sahib also houses the Guru Granth Sahib, the religious 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 inadequate 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.
