Golden Temple

The holiest Sikh shrine is a sight to behold, day or night. Watch the shrine and its reflections shimmering in the surrounding holy reservoir in the dawn light, or sunset, or even when it is magically lit at night.

Sikhs believe in helping and serving humanity as a means of serving the divine, hence all Gurdwaras (Sikh temple) have teams of volunteers preparing and serving langars (free meals) to all visitors, irrespective of religion or race. The Golden temple kitchens are the biggest amongst all gurudwaras, and you can watch the volunteer teams working furiously rolling chapattis or washing utensils.

The meals served are hygienic and most importantly, truly representative of the simple, hearty fare of the Punjab. To eat a meal here, sitting convivially amongst Sikh pilgrims and visitors from all across the world, might just be one of the best ‘real’ India experiences on your holiday.
