"Book to bed" Amritsar Local Custom Tip by Willettsworld

Amritsar Local Customs: 27 reviews and 38 photos


According to Lonely Planet, the Sikh's holy book, the Guru Granth Sahib, to which they recite from during the day, is carried from the Golden Temple and put to bed overnight so I hung around to see what happened. At 10pm things started to happen so I quickly got up and rushed over and took a couple of pictures of it being put away in a room in the main causeway gatehouse (Darshani Deorhi). The book is encased in a type of canopy which has a golden roof.
