There is place to sit here and pray, away from the crowds milling around outside the Akal Takht. This was my favourite place to be.

Its a great peaceful place to spend some time. Its situated inside Harmandir sahib. Water in the middle and walking around it gives such a beautiful picture and feel. Its really good place to spend some time with your inner soul or for meditation.

We walked around the area after our visit to the temple itself. It was a foggy morning and not all that crowded, for such a large place. Great photo opportunities!
