Hello,

I think May-July, is very busy for golden temple and also very hot. Its all made of marble so gets very hot during noon. From Aug its fine tempreature wise and also coz of crowd.

Other places that you can see in punjab are-

1)Wagah border, from Bus station its 1 hrs to reach that place. Parade start at 5 pm. So you can leave for station at 2 pm, stand in big que for another hrs, then rush in to occupy your place.

2) Jallian wala bagh is at working distance from golden temple. Entry is free.

3) Taran -Taran is another exciting place, similar to Golden Temples. From bus station its opposite to Wagah border. Again1 hrs drive.

4) Vyas. This place is worth seeing it can take 2hrs, if time permitts. Camera, mobile are not allowed here. This place belongs to satsangi people. So every corner is very very beautiful. Quaters are in european styles. They have many rickshaw cycle who will do tour with you and charge Rs 5. They have there canteen and mess for food. Worth to visit.

5) Near railway station in modern colony there is a temple of goddess, which is locally popular as Modern Vaishno devi temples, coz lots of stairs and narrow ramps.

I always feel oct- nov is very gud time to visit.

Thanks.
