Create an itinerary including Harmandir Sahib
The expansive religious complex of Harmandir Sahib represents the holiest pilgrimage site in Sikhism. Built between 1585 and 1604, the complex suffered heavy damage during an Indian Army operation to root out Sikh extremists in 1984. Visit the extensive site and you'll immediately notice the pool surrounding the main temple, said to possess healing powers. Admire the marble base and intricate gilded top portion of the temple, a symbol for Sikhs the world over, and head inside to get a look at the interior, richly decorated with gold and precious stones. Respect the temple's guidelines by removing your shoes, washing your feet, and covering your head before entering.

  • Amazing temple. Excellent cleanliness. Great service from the management. Cameras are allowed inside. Dress code is mandatory for all people entering inside. Also foot wears are not allowed which can be kept in lockers before entering free of cost. Very crowded during almost all the days. A half day is enough for a satisfying visit.
  • One of the great places to visit in India and I highly recommend every travellers and every single person living in India to visit there at least once in a lifetime. Such a great place to stay and feel the awesomeness and beauty of India. And every single services is free there and u can have there free meal also. And u must wear a white or yellow coloured cloth on your head its very necessary and highly religious to them so make sure you don't hurt the sentiments of people around there. THANK YOU AND ENJOY YOUR TRIP.
