The Golden Temple, located in the heart of bustling Amritsar, is one of the most Iconic Hindu temples in the world. Its stunning facade, and the fact that the upper levels are covered entirely in gold, give it a unique, and memorable look.
It is in the middle of a man-made water body, and is surrounded on all four sides. The water adds to the atmosphere, making it utterly serene, and the whole experience is very meditative, even though there usually will be upward of 2,00,000 people on any given day.
It is an absolutely must-see while in India. In the day, it glows like a jewel in the sun, and the reflection into the water looks unbelievable. In the night, the lights, and the gold facade look absolutely breathtaking! I cannot decide which view I liked better – so I made it a point to see both(the night image is a little pixellated due to the bright lights, sorry about that)
I hope you visit this any chance you get! Let me know how you liked it 🙂
