“"Simply Beautiful" - a must see in Tarn Taran”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 April 2014

This temple is very historic and when in Tarn Taran is a must see. It hosts a very large pool of nectar which takes about 30-40 mins to circle and is a very serene and relaxing experience. The Temple is located right inside the main tarn taran bazaar and is very easy to locate. Guru ka langar is also offered here as in all the Sikh Temples and I would recommend enjoying the blessed lunch! You can also do some shopping once you're done with your temple visit as it's entrance sits right inside the bazaar.

“Extraordinary pond with real devotes and no tourists!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 April 2014

It is a magnificent temple, really beautiful. The people come from the rural area to pray in tractors, autos, etc. As in the Golden Temple there are gold decorations, but to note are the ones on top of each of the 4 entrances to the sanctuary. The internal painting in the ceiling and walls are nicer than in the Golden Temple, though you cannot go to the first floor they are really worth it.

“Off beat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 April 2014

This is off beat for the tourist but you can reach here in a 25 min drive. The pool of nectar is pure bliss and do visit to experience serenity.

“A hidden gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 April 2014

Visitors to the Harmandir Sahib (Golden Temple) may find value in making the short taxi ride to Tarn Taran and visiting the Tarn Taran Sahib Gurdwara. It is very similar to architecture and beauty of the GoldenTemple, and similar in the peace that it instills, but with a fraction of the crowd.

“The biggest sacred pond”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 March 2014

Tarn Taran Sahib has the biggest sacred holy pond of the word. As told to me, the "Jal" (Water) in the pond can provide water to many farms around the region.
