Getting Close To the Golden Temple
I have heard a lot about the iconic Golden Temple, and always wanted to witness the structure is truly made up of the pure glittering gold. But when I visited the temple, the entire complex of the Gurudwara is huge. A golden shrine located centrally of the artificial pond is the major attraction. The pond is called the Amrit Sarovar. Amritsar derived its name from the pond itself. But first I just wanted to talk about the revered structures. Devotees can reach the golden shrine through a causeway. The structure is an intricate blend of the Hindu and Muslim architecture. The magnificent structure is divided into the two-level, the lower one is the marble and the upper one is built with the precious yellow metal. People wanted to get one in one can look out for the Punjab holiday packages.
It is here the holy book of Sikhs Guru Garanth Sahib is continuously chanted by the priest and musician. The installation of the holy book Guru Garanth Sahib is a mesmerizing and divine procession. In winters, the timing of the ceremony is 5 am to 9.40pm and summers 4 am to 10.30pm. At last devotees can savour the at the Guru Ka langar. The whole experience of the trip was divine and never to forgotten. On my holiday trip to the historic city of Amritsar, there is so much to uncover.
