We reached amritsar junction the other morning at 7am. We took a local vehicle and already googled some nearby hotels. Found one near the Golden Temple at quiet reasonable price. We stayed at Hotel GRAND NAVJYOTI near from both railway station and The Golden Temple. We booked 2 rooms and both rooms were fully AC with facilities of fridge, geysers, TV and 24/7 room service and cleanliness. It costed around 2200 bucks (INR) FOR 2 DAYS and 1 NIGHT.
The same day around 11 we left our hotel to visit The holy HARMINDAR SAHIB Or as we know it THE GOLDEN TEMPLE. The auspicious and magical religious place of THE SIKHS.
I myself have this very different bond with the GURUDWARAS from childhood. I feel the vibe inside me. I feel so attracted and light minded while am in a gurudwara. Witnessed the whole GURUDWARA from inside and with peace in mind sat their to listen to the SHABADS - PRAYERS DONE THROUGH MUSIC. Was lucky enough to drink the water from the gurudwara and also the KARA PRASAD with all the love and blessings in it. Surely was the best trip I ever had.
Then we walked across the local market full of bright coloured handmade speciality of PUNJAB, THE PHULKARI WORK. Also the streets smelled heavenly from all the food stalls near by. We enjoyed the most Indian meal, one can ever have,CHOLE KULCHE- SPICY CHICKPEAS WITH STUFFED BREAD and KULFI - THE INDIAN ICECREAM.
Around 8pm we left for our hotel.
( due to heavy rush we couldn't eat BABA'S PRASAD- LANGAR that day but surely ate it the other day.)
