Akal Takht, Amritsar

(440+ reviews on the web)
Architectural Building Landmark
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.
