Hello to all,as i had promised i will take you to trip of Punjab(sorry i am little bit late).From today i am starting it off.First of all,we will start from : AMRITSAR: The name of the city comprises of two words : Amrit+sar means Pool of Immorality. This city has made Punjab,among one of the favourite tourist spot for visitors from outside India and India.What's so special.Bahut kuch hai ji(there's so much). The Golden Temple at night Let's start with Golden Temple as it attract attention due to it's beauty and view it gives,especially at night or early morning when sun shines over it.This temple belongs to Sikhs and is called Harminder sahib,Swarn Mandir. It has a sarowar(pool of water that is called sarowar in hindi/punjabi)that surrounds this temple has been discovered by third guru of Sikhs,Guru Ram Das ji and has capability of curing every type of disease so city is named after this pool.Temple's foundation was laid by a muslim sufi Mia Mir ji under the rein of fourth guru of sikhs Guru Arjan Dev ji.This is short hisory of this temple.This place was attacked by Mughals but it survived and later on carved in gold.It's carvings are just magnificient.If you want to enjoy real fantasy then visit on Vaisakhi or Holi. <TABLE class="infobox vcard" style="FONT-SIZE: 90%; WIDTH: 25.5em; TEXT-ALIGN: left"><TD class="fn org" style="FONT-SIZE: larger; TEXT-ALIGN: center" colSpan=2>Harmandir Sahib<TD style="FONT-SIZE: smaller; TEXT-ALIGN: center" colSpan=2> Note: Mobiles are to be switched off in area near temple and you are not allowed to shoot inside the temple.Avoid going on Sundays or festivals as it has huge gatherings and you won't be able to enjoy it's sights in dhakka-mukki(in evenings also).Secondly,find place for parking first if you are in your car as it is in middle of town and surrounded by bazaar.
