I reached the temple by 10 P.M. and walked towards the temple for praying to the almighty. At that time, the Granth Sahib is taken to the place, of its rest, by placed it into the palki, there were cushions and pillows on the palki, the fresh set of silk and brocade coverings lay down and the scented rose water delicately sprinkle all over. During the process, the head priest of the temple and all the devotees sign Gurbani in devotional tones.
Then I did the Parikarma around the Holy water pool (Sarovar) and wash my face with the holy water, as it is said that visiting the temple is incomplete without entering the water as it sheds all the troubles. The devotees were lying down on the marble walkway to wake up early at 5 A.M., to see the Granth Sahib, being taken back into the temple with the great honor.
Sitting near to the Pool (Sarovar), looking to the fishes that quickly comes on the surface and vanishes back in the dark, in a blink of the eye and admiring the glorious marvel in front of my eye, was really a wonderful time.
Visiting the Golden Temple at night was truly a magnetize experience. I was not only impressed by the beauty of temple which makes it marvelous but also inspired the efforts invested by the volunteers. All the volunteers were very forgiving. There is no caste and creed, which makes all these volunteers selfless and motivates them to serve the mankind.
