Second Stop on our Amritsar trip after Jallianwala Bagh was heart of the CITY – GOLDEN TEMPLE .( Swaran Mandir )
The serenity of the place can be felt with first step inside the dorm . We can spend hours sitting in the vicinity of this place and may find some inner peace too .The charm of this place made us to visit 2 times in 2 consecutive days to watch it’s glory in NIGHT and DAY MODE.
This place also runs a Community Kitchen know as ” GURU KA LANGER ” which is free for all and is entirely run by Volunteers ( Sevadars ) and there was no dearth of them even in freezing cold winters .
Other than this , they have a library and hostel where you can stay for FREE in dormitory style on first come first serve basis . Across the day Sikh Prayer ” Ik Onkaar ” can be listened from any part of the temple .
Interestingly , Inside the pond surrounding the main dorm , we spotted many golden colored fish ( Check pictures ) and don’t knew it was a pure coincidence or they have been placed .
Overall , the place is very well managed and would surely make you to revisit .
Sharing with you our memories of the trip in form of pictures which may inspire you too.
