The Golden Temple is one of the holiest sites in India. It is visited by hundreds of thousands every year to say their prayer in a site where the first Guru regularly said his prayers. Its a amazing place to visit if you are in amritsar.They serve upto 20000-100000 people a day and the all food comes from the donations. Its not just a place for sikh people, All the other religion's people comes here. The best thing about this is you don't have to pay a single ruppe anywhere in the temple. If you want to stay at temple in night, they have rooms for that so that you dont have to go for hotels.The beauty of temple is golden plated top of the temple. The whole temple is situates in the lake with beautifull fishes.
It was a pleasant experience to roam about the river and photograph the magnificent Golden Temple at a time when it was the least crowded. People from all walks of life dotted the place, offering respite from the monotony of routine life and broadening our perceptions. Again, the architecture deserves a special mention. Of both the temple itself as well as the surrounding buildings. The entire place was exceptionally maintained for cleanliness with facilities such as running water tub for washing feet before entering the compound. We found a lone tile with Urdu wordings, and were wondering who could decipher it...maybe it's still a mystery, yet. I managed to get a couple of good shots as well as a golden moment on video. Tired and sleepy, we decided to head off to the Gurudwara section and drank a bowl of Tea in the hope that it will carry us forward through the day. Also, for those who do not know, Golden Temple serves free food all day so, well you're welcome!
Golden Temple is truly a God's Place. Every day and night, people come and visit this holy place for worship. But, I personally like to visit the temple at night, because, the beauty of the temple is impeccable at that time. The chanting of holy words, peaceful temple, and the holy water pool (Sarovar) looked shimmered under the golden lights that encapsulates me to the other world and really gives me the peace of mind.
Day 5 - Explore AmritsarNext day morning we had breakfast at the very famous Kulwant Ke kulche. It was a very small shop but the rush outside was humongous
Even though we were stuffed, a Jalebi stall on our way tempted us to have at least a plate :D
