The Golden Temple is the holiest Sikh shrine and is one of the must-visit places in Amritsar. Though the sprawling Gurudwara complex is always bustling with devotees, silence rules the air. The soft prayer chants unfurl an aura of spirituality over the entire complex. Built out of marble and covered in gold, the temple is surrounded by the glistening Amrit Sarovar, which is said to have given the city its name.
The Golden Temple is truly a symbol of brotherhood and equality. The temple’s langar feeds up to 1,00,000 people every day, regardless of their faith and beliefs. A visit here is a highly recommended experience.
