The expansive religious complex of 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.

Best place to visit in Amritsar. It is not a just a place, it is the definition of Sikhism , the way they manage whole thing, the environment of temple's campus is such peaceful and relaxing.. you will definitely love it. Visit once in your life. It was my second visit and still I didn't get bored. I am gonna love it every time.
If you can go early morning. It's cooler and less crowded. Great place to go to get some clarity, peace and spiritual cleansing. Plenty of people to guide you to the Golden Temple but simply follow the masses of people. It's hard to not get there. If you're able I'd highly suggest to sit and listen to some prayers and take a break from your phone/camera.
