Historical Place (Golden Temple)

India is a diverse country.

It has a rich historical background.

The place I am going to talk about here is the golden temple or Harimandir Sahib or the temple of the god .

It is a place of stupendous beauty and sublime peace.

It is situated at Amritsar in Punjab.

The sikhs all over the world daily wish to pay obeisence at Shri Harimandir Sahib.

Although the 4TH guru of Sikhs Guru Ram Das ji had the idea of this temple , but it was made by the 5TH guru Guru Arjan Dev ji .

It took 16 years (from 1588-1604)to complete this temple.

The temple is surrounded by a large lake of water, known as the sarover which consists of amrit (holy water or Immortal vector).

There are 4 entrances to the temple which signifies openness and acceptance.

People of all castes ,creed ,religion and sex are welcome here .

However, everyone must cover their head as a mark of respect, remove their shoes and wash feet in the small pool of water .

People from all nooks and corners of the world flock to see the golden temple .

I go there once a month to prostrate before the god.

Whenever we have guests, then a visit to the golden temple is always on our agenda.
