Proudly praised as Sikhism's holiest site, the Golden Temple of Amritsar, or Darbar Sahib or Harmandir Sahib, is a significant shrine and also a living symbol of the spiritual and historical traditions of the Sikhs. It is a famous gurdwara, the place of assembly and worship for Sikhs, located 460 km from Delhi in the city of Amritsar. As its name, the temple is mainly covered by the gorgeous golden hue of gold and its dome is gilded with 750 kg of pure gold. There is a marble walkway enclosing all four sides of the temple. Surrounded by other white temples and the calm & clean moat, Darbar Sahib is not a massive temple but it is definitely stunning and glorious. The construction of the whole temple complex started in late 1577 and completed in 1604. This sacred temple welcomes everyone to ask blessings and enjoy its beauty and spirituality. Visitors must cover their heads out of respect before entering the Golden Temple, long pants and shoulders should also be covered, and shoes are not allowed in the temple complex.
