Religion or faith have no bar here. You could even be non-religious. Yet, the sanctity of Harmandir Sahib, popularly known as Golden Temple will touch your heart.
The pure sight of the Gurudwara gives a peaceful and soothing touch to the inner self.
The long wait in the queue to get inside the Golden Temple is totally worth it. Have patience as the queue slowly but steadily inches forward. Because The insides have to be seen to be believed. Photography isn’t permitted inside. You have to store in your memory the beauty that accosts you.
After paying respects and having the Prasada , do take the opportunity and have the food at Langar..The free community kitchen adjoining a huge dining hall proved 24/7 meals (langar) to lakhs of devotees all the year around.It is something which cannot be missed.
Punjab is quite famous for the food and Amritsar is one of the best places to witness that. There are many places which offer authentic Punjabi Dishes and all those are literally mouth watering. Being a foodie you ought to explore this to the fullest.
I tried food at couple of places one was Bharva Dhaba it was suggested to me by a friend and the place was above par than what I had expected in terms of food .
Another place which I happened to visit for food was Kesar Dhaba this was suggested by a local person there and it has a lot of variety of Parathas /Kulchas and the taste is not forgettable. Plus the Lassi adds on to as the cherry on the cake . Although this is a major tourist place the expense is kept quite under control and you can have sumptuous food at a very reasonable cost.
This is favorite part of the journey for a foodie..!!!
