about golden temple

Golden Temple is one of the most important and key religious places for Sikhs in Amritsar. The Gurudwara blessed with immense spiritual bliss and tranquillity really forms the centre and soul of Amritsar. It also holds the Granth Sahib which is a holy scripture for the Sikhs. The upper floors of the Gurudwara are completely covered with gold and hence the name.

It is a symbol of brotherhood and equality as it was built with the aim that people from all walks and religions of life would visit the place for religious blessings. Over a lakh people visit the Golden Temple for holy blessings. The beautiful Sarovar in the centre of the Gurudwara, where thousands of people take a holy bath is literally the soul of this holy place. Every holy event is celebrated with great enthusiasm here. The soulful Gurbani adds to the charm while inculcating good moral and human values in the worshippers.

Bathing in the Amrit Sarovar is of course an ancient tradition. The water is believed to have healing powers, and so draws the sick and ailing from all faiths. Bring a towel along if you want to go in for a dip. There is a walled-off portion where women may bathe; the men, in the mandatory boxer shorts, have the rest of the pool to themselves. On the eastern side of the tank is the Dukh Bhanjani Beri, which is where the original natural pool was located.

The Golden Temple or Harmandir Sahib is the holiest shrine of the Sikhs. Thousands visit the gurudwara everyday. The temple gets its name from its golden dome. The sarovar or body of water around the Akal Takht is a peaceful place to sit and reflect. ...... read more
