About Golden Temple in Amritsar

The Golden Temple, also known as Sri Harmandir Sahib is a highly revered religious Sikh shrine and symbolizes equality and human brotherhood. The gurudwara epitomizes distinctive heritage and identity of Sikhs, while glorifying their ideals. After its compilation, Sri Guru Granth Sahib (scripture of the Sikhs) was first installed at Sri Harmandir Sahib on 16th August, 1604. At this soothing site, everybody can seek religious fulfilment and spiritual solace, irrespective of cast. Tourist attractions in Golden Temple Complex are Central Sikh Museum, Monument of Victory of Sikhs on Delhi, and Har ki Pauri.

Golden Temple in Amritsar is doused in unique Sikh architecture. It stands at a level lower than the surrounding land level. This Punjab Golden Temple has four entrances from all the four directions, indicating that people from every walk of life are welcome to its pious expanses. Golden Temple architecture is commendable. The art displayed here is a rare work of craftsmanship of fine art by Sikh Artists. One can find gold embossed work on all the domes, inner walls, and door panels. The inlay work depicts beautiful designs engraved in marble, studded with colorful semi-precious stones, showcasing life in shape of human beings, flowers, birds, and animals.

Visiting Golden Temple at night is a blissful experience, when it mesmerizes eyes and soul. On special occasions such as is a birth anniversary of a Sikh Guru or an important event for Sikh community, Golden Temple transforms into a shimmering visual treat with golden lights and its reflection in the pious lake. Firecrackers display make even the stars dim adding to Golden Temple night view. Watching Golden Temple live is an experience to treasure for life. Harmandir Sahib live kirtan adds to the spiritual bliss that is soul soothing. Tourists can also enjoy live kirtan from Golden Temple by tuning in to any of the radio stations of Amritsar.

History of Golden Temple is as fascinating as the temple itself. In 1570, the third Guru Sahib launched the plans of excavating a holy tank and building a town settlement in the area. The fifth Guru Sahib conceptualized a central worship place and in 1588 began the construction. Punjab Golden Temple suffered several attacks during the next few decades but the damages were eventually fixed. The sixth Guru Sahib further developed the temple complex. The gurudwara was bedecked by Maharaja Ranjit Singh, who generously completed the gold plating of the gurudwara in 1830. Needless to say, Amritsar Golden Temple history is golden like the temple.

The waterbody that graces the temple is a sacred pool known as the Amrit Sarovar (Pool of Nectar). The devotees who visit the shrine bathe in the Golden Temple Sarovar to attain spiritual and worldly benefits. Tourist places in Amritsar near Golden Temple include Wagah Border, Durgiana Temple, Akal Takht, Tarn Taran, Harike Wetland, Maharaj Ranjit Singh Museum, Bathinda Fort, Goindwal Sahib, and ISCKON Temple.

    • Trip to Himachal

      Hotel Services was poor. I booked hotel with Heating. But when i checked in i was forced to but heater at extra cost. The same was included in our quote. Other than this hotel was good with beautiful view. Food was good. We had booked two innova cars. One driver was very rude and he started arguing with everything us. I payed extra for night depature from Manali. However cab driver stopped the car midway at punjab and he started sleeping there. We slept for about 4 hours in car irself. Then he dropped at hotel the final and he went off. He even took the other driver who was good along with him. My final drop was at airport as per the quote. I need to thank the travel agent here who arranged the alternate cab in short span of time and he dropped us at airport. Travel agent Mr Pawan was very good. He was so kind and generous that he always supported wherever we were stuck. And finally he arranged an alternate cab for dropping us at airport.

      A nice holiday to Manali... Transportation from Delhi was a little hectic... not a big problem though... The third day sightseeing was a disappointment... On reviewing now, it feels that we could have a better itinery if we had done some pre research online.. Travel agent services were good.. Hotel Snow country was fine..Cab driver was a nice Punjabi man.. went to his house in Punjab and had a cup of tea on our return to Delhi... Gulaba was the finest part of the trip.. Looking for more trips with travel triangle...
