Morning visit to the Golden Temple, the seat and most holy shrine of the Sikh religion.

There is a special Visitor's room on the right of the entrance to the central courtyard and tank. Here you can leave your shoes and cigarettes if you should be carrying them, and also get information in English before entering. Take your time to walk first around the "talab" water body, which is done clockwise. The Golden Temple is set in the middle of this and is reached by a walkway over the water.
