Amritsar Things to Do: 115 reviews and 272 photos

Two watch towers near the dining hall overlook the whole Golden Temple complex. They were built in the 18th century in Islamic style and named after a Punjabi tribe. Until 1984, they had a flat roof on top but following the Indian Army's "Blue Star" raid in 1984, they were reconstructed with a spiral apex.
