Golden Temple Amritsar
The most important religious place for Sikhs and also the main attraction of the city. Legend has it that when Guru Ramdas heard about healing powers of Amrit Sarovar, he asked his son to build a temple at the site.
The foundation was laid by Guru Ramdas and completed by Guru Arjan Dev Ji. The complex is open for 20 hours from 6 am to 2 am daily. People are expected to cover their head, wash their hands and legs before entering the temple.
The intricate marble work in the temple and covering of it with gold was conducted by Maharaja Ranjit Singh.
