“Historic & Enchanting”
Review of Akal Takht

Akal Takht
Ranked #3 of 73 things to do in Amritsar
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 30 April 2014

The Akal Takht - a famous Sikh Takht - this is a building which is very historic and hosts the connection between the spiritual side and "worldy" side of Sikhism - there are 5 takhts in Sikhism located in 5 different temples and this is one of them. You can visit it and also visit the museum that has been built for the history of the Sikhs which is also located inside the temple complex.

Its an unbelievable place serene and stark in its gold and white marble glory, despite being in a very busy hotspot market just outside its gates. The crowds just move smoothly without any pushing or pulling unlike other religious places in India. I enjoyed the sunset and the sunrise at the venue and they both felt so different. A must on one's bucket list..

Akal Takht is situated in the golden temple complex. it is a beautiful building very peaceful inside. Every night the guru granth is taken in a procession from the golden temple to the Akal Takht.
