  • Should appreciate all the people who really have taken so much of efforts to maintain it so well. A very peaceful place. Should really visit it once and learn to maintain same way in all temple. Good parking space. Garden is also maintained very well. And wonderful atmosphere.
  • Beautiful statue of Buddha. Very well maintained. All basic amenities available including enormous parking space and food. You can buy your friends and family little souvenirs.
  • This place fully tight with tourists. After you enter you will feel you are some where in Tibet. This place and area is fully covered by tibitiens and Monk. While their prayer time you are not allowed to visit inside the temple. Place is very clean and fully maintained on daily basis. Good for fantasy shopping and clothes, good bargain option available.
  • If you come to this place, you should be blessed. Looking around what the history is you will be shocked. This place is magical, relaxing place and will give you good lucks. Have fun at Golden Temple and searching Facts about it.
  • The beauty of the place is lost when you go in summer time. The best time to visit this place is between November to February and during Monsoons. It is really hot during April and we couldn't enjoy very much. One of the temples was closed for renovations when I went yesterday.
