"Cover head & shoes off" Amritsar Local Custom Tip by Willettsworld

Amritsar Local Customs: 27 reviews and 38 photos


You have to cover your head before you enter into the complex and there are normally plenty of guys selling bandanna's for Rs10 outside. They also make good souvenirs. As is the custom in Hindu temples throughout India, you have to take off your shoes before entering into the Golden Temple complex. There is a very large underground deposit area right by the main entrance.
