We visited the golden temple twice during our visit. My first visit but definitely not my last. Serene and peaceful atmosphere, disciplined crowd and lovely darshan.

I'll keep this simple... you MUST visit here. Mind blowing. The catering function at this temple that gives hundreds of thousands of people a daily meal is outstandingly incredible. Felt very humble to be here recently. Had an amazing experience. 10/10.

Just close eyes for few minutes at Harminder Sahib & feel Peace, solace & tranquility within. You may also watch fearless fishes in the Sarovar. Enjoy Guru ka Langar & Kara Prashad. Do not forget to cover your head when inside the Golden temple.
