Amritsar, Dec 2016
Amritsar is home to the Golden Temple, the spiritual and cultural centre for the Sikh religion. It is the holiest shrine of the Sikhs, which attracts more visitors than Taj Mahal with more than 100,000 visitors on weekdays and is the most popular destination for non-resident Indians in the whole of India.
Everybody, irrespective of cast, creed or race can seek spiritual solace and religious fulfilment in the Golden Temple without any hindrance.
The shrine was damaged seven times by foreign invaders and it was rebuilt, the last of which was in 1764. The upper floors and wall panels were covered in gold-plated copper sheets
