GOLDEN TOUCH. 2 DAYS
The city of Amritsar is a “Meka” for people of Sikh religion. The story of Amritsar dates back to the 16th century when Sikh Guru bought the land from the owner of Tung village for 700 rupees.
Why « Golden touch »?
Today it is time for the cultural marvel-golden temple in Amritsar which survived violent history: The temple was built in a simple way, without many decorations…In the meantime Mughals, Afghans and the Indian Army attacked it in the 19th century… For many years the temple was ‘’sad’’and forgotten by everybody… Fortunately Maharaja Ranjit Singh took finally care of the temple from all his heart: he covered the temple with gold coating, implemented marble panels and fixed the facade with metal…So, how does the temple looks nowadays?
