Golden Temple

Golden Temple

The Golden Temple nestled in Amritsar, comes in the region of northern Punjab and at a stone’s throw to the Pakistan border. Also know as the central and the religious place of the Sikhs and stands as a symbol of unity and equality. In the temple, everybody is welcome and treated fairly, irrespective of cast, creed or race.

Every individual can seek spiritual solace and religious achievement without any obstruction. It is also a symbol of the individuality, glory and heritage of the Sikhs. To pen-down the philosophy, principles, and its exquisiteness is like creating fantasies on paper. The historical heritage of Sri Harimandir Sahib is an earth-shattering task. It is an affair of experience rather than of narration. The Harmandir Sahib also called as Hari Mandir in Amritsar, Punjab, is the most sacred shrine in Sikhism.

More commonly known as the Golden Temple, it was once again officially renamed Harmandir Sahib in March 2005. The temple is a major pilgrimage destination for everyone from across the world, especially Sikhs. The Gurudwara or the Temple is a popular tourist attraction as well. In an exceptionally rich country with deep devotion, Frommers rates the Golden Temple “the most tangibly spiritual place in the country.”

It is believed that with the advise of Sri Guru Amar Dass Ji, the 3rd Sikh Guru, the 4th Sikh Guru, Sri Guru Ram Dass Ji started the digging the Amrit Sarovar in 1577 A.D., which was later on brick-lined by Sri Guru Arjan Dev Ji, the 5th Sikh Guru on December 15, 1588. He also started the building Sri Harimandir Sahib.

The great scripture of the Sikhs, Sri Guru Granth Sahib after completing its compilation, was first installed at Sri Harimandir Sahib on August 16, 1604 A.D. Baba Budha Ji was appointed its first Head Priest. The Gurudwara teaches the lesson of social equality and humility. The four doorways of this holy shrine from all the four directions indicate that people belonging to any and every religion are equally welcome.
