"Golden Temple - Causeway" Amritsar Things to Do Tip by Willettsworld

Amritsar Things to Do: 114 reviews and 269 photos


I stood in the long queue along the causeway in order to enter inside the Golden Temple. The causeway is 60m (197ft) long, made out of marble and is flanked by nine gilded lamps on each side. I waited for about 30 minutes and the closer you get to the temple, the more beautiful it looks. People around me were singing along to the recited verses from the Sikh's holy book. It's partly a series of tunes and partly a series of spoken verses that's broadcast around the complex and surrounding area during the day. When it finishes, they start all over again.
