Trip Planner: Asia / India / Punjab / Amritsar District / Amritsar / Golden Temple - Sri Harmandir Sahib
The expansive religious complex of Golden Temple - Sri Harmandir Sahib represents the holiest pilgrimage site in Sikhism. Built between 1585 and 1604, the complex suffered heavy damage during an Indian Army operation to root out Sikh extremists in 1984. Visit the extensive site and you'll immediately notice the pool surrounding the main temple, said to possess healing powers. Admire the marble base and intricate gilded top portion of the temple, a symbol for Sikhs the world over, and head inside to get a look at the interior, richly decorated with gold and precious stones. Respect the temple's guidelines by removing your shoes, washing your feet, and covering your head before entering.

This is the most beautiful please I've ever been in my life yet!! It very peaceful , calm and of course beautiful. At night the golden temple looks like something from Walt Disney. It's a great place for meditation. Also one free meal a day for everyone, it was a great experience. I'll surely go again. Beautiful place.
Serene and vibrant, lots of energy, especially after the dip in the Lake felt amazing. Every dip in the Lake was energizing, temperature was 4 degrees and during the first dip felt the charge rising up to the head while immersing myself into the Lake. Example of battery indication during charging. I was told by a friend to have faith and take a dip in the Lake only then will it make a difference. Just followed as I was told and experienced something magical. It was the best feeling one can experience. My humble request whenever you are at the Golden temple do not hesitate to take a dip.
