The sightseeing will begin with visit to sacred ‘Golden Temple’. Amritsar city is known as a pilgrimage site for Sikhs due to presence of the holiest Gurudwara. It was established by fourth Sikh Guru (total ten), Guru Ram Das. The fabulous work of gold leaf on the upper part of temple attracts attention. The architecture of the temple consists of :
• Amrit Sarovar – a giant pool meaning Pool of nectar where people take holy dip
• Akal Takht – five storeyed building situated opposite sanctum having special room for keeping scripture.
• Main Temple – a 10 min walkway leads to the sanctum where Guru Grantha Sahib is kept whole day for people to pay obeisance. Its ceiling is decorated with work of gold foil and precious stones.
The religion believes in selflessly serving the people. It houses community-kitchen in which people volunteer and serve Langar (free food) to all people. Relish Langar and then move to next tourist site Jallianwala Bagh.
