Golden Temple (Harmandir Sahib)

The Golden Temple also known as Harmandir Sahib is the holiest Gurdwara situated in Amritsar. A Sikh guru named Guru Arjan designed the golden temple and installed the “Adi Granth (Holy Scripture of Sikhism)” in the temple. In 19th Century, Maharaja Ranjit Singh took over Punjab and defended it from the attacks of the neighbouring regions. This was when he covered the top floors of the Gurdwara with Gold which helped the temple to make a distinct place in itself, and also it got the English name. The Gurdwara is surrounded by a lake, which consists the “Holy Water” and three Holy trees. Many memorial slab and plaques are placed inside the Gurdwara, which commemorates the past events.

It was a new day. We wake up early as we had plans to travel 2-3 places because we had train in night the same day. First we went to Golden Temple because we couldn't go there in the previous night. We visited golden temple. It took us 2 hours in line to visit the temple because it was Sunday. Then we had tasty Kada Prasad. But still we were hungry. So we went outside and had very tasty and delicious amritsari kulcha. They are so good I can't even tell you. Never had that kind of Kulcha in my life.

Day 1 Golden Temple It was a morning flight of 8.00 am on 2nd January to Amritsar, which was preponed. However, we all woke up on time 5 people of our group Jayesh, Soumesh, Steve, Neeraj, and the sixth person Avtar was already there in Amritsar he had gone there 3 days before by himself.We booked two cabs to the T2 airport me and Soumesh. We reached the airport on time rest three people had some issues with the cab person as he deliberately canceled their rides after knowing the location ( yes such people do exist everywhere).Finally, they got another cab and made it to the airport. Then we checked in and boarded the flight in haste I forgot the hoodie at the security check. So there was the final call for our flight and we managed to reach on time, it was my life's first flight.Had a mixed feeling sitting inside we were provided with the face shield and middle seat person which was, unfortunately, I had to wear a PPE kit.The flight took off still kind of nervous and anxious but was normal after some time was chilling when the flight was finally stable enjoying the cloudy views, but as soon as there was an announcement that flight will reach Amritsar I had this strange feeling of cold suddenly and started sweating 🤕 it was the first time I experienced this on the flight after some time it got normal. So we finally reached our destination Amritsar.
The temple vicinity is always busy with devotees across India.Night glittery view of temple is just eye soothing. One has to maintain the que to reach the main temple, seek blessings, sit for a while listening to the holy Bhajans and take Prasad and head towards the Food Court to Have Langar-the holy food.You can even help preparing and serving the langar .They called this as SevaBhav. Overnight stay In Amritsar.
