The Amritsar Golden Temple is the largest temple in Sikhism in India. It is located in the center of the Indian border city of Amritsar. The entire Golden Temple was built in 750 kilograms of gold.

The splendid Golden Temple is not only a holy place for Sikhs, but also a tourist attraction in India.

The Golden Temple was founded in the 15th century by Al Qiong, the fifth master of Sikhism. The Golden Temple was repeatedly looted and rebuilt and restored. When it was rebuilt in 1830, it used 100 kilograms of gold to make its surface dazzling, so it was the common name of the Golden Temple. As a holy place for Sikhism, Amrit means “nectar pond”. It was only the Sikhism of the Hindu Reformist branch. After several generations of religious efforts, it eventually developed into a completely independent religion in the 16th century.

The temple was built in the "Niketal" pool, and Amrit was named after the pool. The pool was also regarded as a holy water by the Sikhs.

All visitors must take off their shoes and walk barefoot from the pool at the door to express their respect for the Sikh masters. And regardless of men, women and children, can not be naked, or wear a hat, or wrapped in a headscarf.
