Till date, visit to the Golden Temple in Amritsar is one of the most heart-touching experiences for tourists as far as religious tours in India are concerned.

This grand structure is believed to have laid by the hands of Guru Arjun Dev, the fifth of the Ten Gurus of Sikhism, in 1588. The temple or ‘Gurudwara’ was constructed to provide the Sikhs a central location of worship. It’s strategically nestled in between a pool that intends the synthesis of ‘nirgun’ and ‘sargun’ – the spiritual and secular realms of human existence. The pool, also known as Amrit Sarovar, has a great spiritual significance and water of it is believed to have a healing power that can cure many medical disabilities. The primary intention of wonderful building is to spread the ethos of Sikhism widely.

The Golden Temple went through an extensive renovation during Maharaja Ranjit Singh’s region.
