Golden Temple in Amritsar

The Harimandir Sahib is considered holy by Sikhs. The holiest text of Sikhism, the Guru Granth Sahib, is present inside the gurdwara during daytime and the holy book goes for Sukhasan during the night time. Its construction was mainly intended to build a place of worship for men and women from all walks of life and all religions to come and worship God equally.

"Beautiful and peaceful place. You have to cover your head with any cloth before entering. And most important THE LANGAR which is really amazing to see how they cook so large amount of food for people and how they serve it. Food is very tasty in Langar and free of cost. Toilets are very very clean in temple. Good experience. :)"

"To compare it with any of its peers in other religions would be sacrilege. But one is forced, out of compelling bodily senses, to realize the peace and tranquility of mind when one is not being bothered by still and stagnant queues or frequent stares by security forces. You are provided with all the help human body is capable of on account of untiring efforts of "sewaks". The golden temple seems to be two different places in the broad day light and moon lit night. Sit by the side of "sarovar" and let the divinity seep in and you will realize why almost certainly an atheist like me would enjoy the humming of swarming people in the backdrop of Shabad Kirtan. Surreal is too small a word here."

"Known to me as the "golden temple" I spent 2 nights in the holiest Sihk Gudwara with other pilgrims to experience something truly amazing. Feeding over 80,000 people per day, this is the largest free kitchen on Earth. The four entrances positioned on all sides symbolize the notion that everyone is welcome, even non Sihks. Not only do they provide food around the clock, but people also sleep there at no cost. I stayed in a room for foreign pilgrims for 2 nights and met great people and felt perfectly safe with a doorman watching over. I suggest waking up for sunrise to see something truly spectacular. And if free chapati and dal doesn't do it for you, head over to the famous Brothers Dhaba nearby for some legendary food."
