Gleaming with 750 kg of pure gold, genuine spiritual atmosphere and the holy Amrit Sarovar – the pool of nectar are some of endearing attributes the Golden Temple – the Sikh’s most sacred shrine in Amritsar – is known for.

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. Artistically designed and decorated with pure gold, the temple got turned into an architectural masterpiece after that renovation. A beautiful mix of Hindu and Muslim styles of architecture here can leave anyone mesmerized.

With its wonderful atmosphere full of spirituality and peace, this holy Gurudwara truly interprets the Sikhism’s aim to lead pure life. Bathing in the Amrit Sarovar or the pool of nectar gives devotes a healing experience. If you’re lucky enough to witness Palki Sahib or the Night Ceremony, where the Granth Sahib is taken from the shrine in Hari Mandir to the sanctum, you would get the experience of a lifetime. Really, this splendid shrine stands glorious with its spirituality and architecture design, and hence attracts pilgrims from far and wide.
