Akal Takht, Amritsar

4.8
Admire the Sikh architecture of Akal Takht, one of five seats of the Jathedars, the highest Sikh spokespeople. This takht originally dates from the 17th century, when Guru Hargobind had it constructed to demonstrate his sovereignty. Although the structure sustained heavy damaged by the Indian army during a 1984 military operation, the Sikhs restored it in 1995. Observe the grandiose building's gold-leaf dome, and step inside to take in the spiritual atmosphere and vibrant decor.

  • Morning, evening, day, each time went. Engagement force would accept guys who came while grandeur as a holy place, a warm feel. After Chai, honed his skills in India with the container. It was a good experience. I'd walk in bare feet and so cold, but marble is warmed in the Sun during the day, so was it cold at night.

Where to stay in Amritsar

The area of Amritsar that surrounds the Golden Temple can be an entertaining, enriching, and chaotic place to stay. A number of budget and mid-range hotels and hostels sit on the narrow streets here, providing decent rooms and some shared lodgings for pilgrims and tourists alike. The more upmarket and spacious options largely lie to the north. Hall Road offers plenty of hotels and hostels, while the most luxurious options sit to the north of the train station, primarily along Queens Road.
