Amritsar

Amritsar is a city of just over a million people and is situated in the Indian state of Punjab, India, very close of the border with Pakistan.
The people of Amritsar speak the Punjabi dialect of Maajhi, while you will also hear Hindi, English and Urdu spoken often. Amritsar is a city of great religious importance because it is the spiritual and cultural centre of the Sikh Religion.

Amritsar

The city is often viewed as the best place to start traveling in North India, because it is home to Raja Sansi International Airport and it also lies on the Grand Trunk Road which stretches from Delhi to Lahore in Pakistan.

Golden Temple (Harmander Sahib) :
The Golden temple is located in the holy city of the Sikhs, Amritsar . The Golden temple is famous for its full golden dome, it is one of the most sacred pilgrim spots for Sikhs. The Mandir is built on a 67-ft square of marble and is a two storied structure. Maharaja Ranjit Singh had the upper half of the building built with approximately 400 kg of gold leaf.

The Golden Temple is surrounded by a number of other famous temples like the Durgiana Temple .

Durgiana Temple ( Lakshmi Narain Temple ) :
Built in the third decade of the 20th Century it echoes, not the traditional Hindu temple architecture, but that of the Golden Temple and, in a similar manner rises from the midst of a tank and has canopies and the central dome in the style of the Sikh temple. One of the greatest reformers and political leaders of resurgent India , Pandit Madan Mohan Malviya, laid its foundation stone.
