Temple | Golden Temple | Border | History

HolidayIQ Reviewer Shaoli Kapoor adds, “Amritsar - Truly The Golden Land...It would be unjust to term the Golden Temple as an attraction. In fact, it seems more like a spiritual school where sincerity, discipline and respect for individuals is the foremost learning and practice. The magnificent gurudwara is an architecture that can make you stand in awe for hours. Capturing the entire campus from various angles for the avid shutterbug can be an endless ordeal, especially during the night! Clear set rules are there in ” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Sankar Narayanan shares, “Holy place to be visited especially on Full Moon day With a white cloth neatly covering my head, I joined the numerous devotees waiting in the bridge connecting the Harmandir Sahib gurudwara at the Golden Temple. The Harmandir Sahib is the Holy place for the Sikhs. In the sanctum the Holy Granth Sahib is placed and worshiped. When you approach this Holy place, you get the positive, soulful and peaceful vibration gripping you. There is no push and pull, people are very orderly and go round the Harmandir Sahib and exit through the back side. There are priests who sit there and recite Holy Kirtans and fan the Granth Sahib. As you exit you are served with a small quantity of prasad which is very delicious. Whether it be day or night, watching the reflection of the Golden Temple in the Amrit sarovar that surrounds the Harmandir Sahib. It is a wonderful experience. I had been there on a Full Moon day. It was an awesome sight to see the Golden Temple in the shining moon lit night and the reflection in the Amrit Sarovar. There is an enormous Community kitchen (Langar) which feed the pilgrims through out. The food consists of Roti, tasty dhall and kichadi.” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Debayan Bhowmik adds, “An ideal mixture of belief and spiritualism The moment you enter the premises of the gurudwara surrounding the hot spring, an unknown sense of spirituality will engulf you, whatever may be your religion. The belief with which people come here is amazing to look at and feel. It is believed that bathing in the water of the spring can cure any kind of skin rashes and also steamed rice (cooked in the water of the hot spring) is served as the prasad in the gurudwara, which is purely delicious.” Read Full Review

It is believed that whatever you wish at Bangala Sahib actually comes true. You can also feast on the amazing langer food while you are here. Also, it'll be great if you can take out some time to do 'seva' at the gurudwara.”

HolidayIQ Reviewer RAMDAS GUPTA adds, “The best part of Gwalior Fort is gurudwara, it's too peaceful place to visit. The marble glares in eyes. You can see the whole city from it. The weather is always good at the top. There is also a light and music program in the night at the Fort. Well in the end I will say it a nice place to visit.” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Priya Anand shares, “Hemkund Sahib - Walking with the divine Generally it is the faithful among the Sikh community that travel to Hemkund Sahib, a steep climb of over 5721 feet in 21 km. Starting at 5721, the relentless climb winds its way upwards from Govind Ghat via Gangaria. The climb from Gangaria is particularly steep but beautiful with Alpine flowers including the Brahma Kamal and the elusive Blue Poppy. As we huff and puff our way to the top, we stop in awe of the Sikh devotees who murmuring their prayers walk in a steady crises cross manner to conserve their energy. It is indeed the pull of the divine that keeps us going, for when we reach the gurudwara, the simple but sublime beauty of the edifice and the clear pristine waters of the lake make even the atheist among us feel that we are in the presence of a divine power. The oxygen deprived air can make us feel a little light headed and breathless, but after a few minutes; we walk into the gurudwara and are captured by the simplicity and elegance of the bhajans as we bow down before the holy Guru Granth. Sweet kheer and a tea with a more than liberal dose of sugar revive us and we marvel at the sheer beauty of the Himalayan Panorama. Its lunch time and we need to walk back to Gangaria, but the memory of Hemkund will remain entrenched in our hearts forever. ” Read Full Review
