The peace, tranquility and divinity will mesmerise every visitor... you will feel a load of your mind as soon as you wash your feet and enter the complex ... it is a must see spectacle in the night when the Gurdwar shines like a beacon of faith for all ...

Although I am neither a Sikh or a Punjabi, but my family and I had many a peaceful moments when we entered the temple. The girls loved the fishes... More

Visit this place. Wait in the long line that takes you inside the main temple. The golden outer structure is not all, the inner sanctum is the best part. Carry an extra pair of clothing along with you so that you can take a dip in the dip, the pond is river fed.

An excellent work done by the present Govt. They have cleaned & made road to the main shrine a pleasure to walk on. It gives you a feeling that no place can give you. You need to visit the place to understand what I'm talking about. The mass flocks the place but the temple guys manage to keep the place... More

A must visit place. Such is the aura of the place that you are surrounded by a very positive and spiritual feeling as you step into the temple. Covering your head is a must here.
