Golden Temple Tour

Duration : - 6 Night / 7 Days
Destination :  - Delhi - Chandigarh - Parivar Vichhora - Anandpur Sahib - Chandigarh - Amritsar - Delhi

The Sikh religion to be moved by the splendour of Amritsar’s Golden Temple, also known as Sri Hari Mandir Sahib or Sri Darbar Sahib.

The temple is located on a small island in the centre of a pool called the amrit-sar ('pool of nectar') and is connected to land by a marble causeway. The golden colour comes from the overlay of gold foil, hence the name.

Patrolling guards are there to ensure that visitors respect the basic rules when visiting the temple. Shoes must not be worn, and heads must be covered. Tobacco and drugs are strictly forbidden, and photography is not permitted inside any of the shrines. However, as long as the rules are respected, visitors of all religions are given a warm welcome. Symbolically, it has entrances on all four sides to show that it is open to worshippers of all castes and creeds, and visitors are welcome to bathe in the purifying waters, listen to readings or simply admire the sunlight gleaming on the magnificent golden domes.
