Golden Temple: Amritsar

Amritsar, which means 'Pool of Immortality' is the spiritual center of Sikh Religion because of 'Harmandir Sahib' or 'Golden Temple' which attracts more than 100,000 visitors per day.

Finally, being there for the 5th time and I was lucky enough to made it to Golden Temple. Thanks to all my official works earlier. During my first two visits I never knew that 'Gurdwara Sahib' remains open 24 hours a day. But let me inform you that the main sanctum remains closed from around 11.30 PM to 4.00 AM. But the Palki Yatra is something to watch.

This time I entered Golden Temple at around 9.45 PM and was there for more than two hours and got stunned by the feeling there and the peace of mind that I received in return.
