The Harmandir Sahib is always abuzz with people who come there to offer their prayers. The complex is well maintained with drinking water and social service centres all-around.

I have never visited such a clean, beautiful, calm and serene holy place in India before. It was winter time. So for benefit of bare footed visitors, thick carpets were spread out so that they do not feel the cool of the marble floor.

In the evening, the holy scriptures are taken from the Golden Temple to the Akal Takht. These ceremonies are beautiful to see.... More
