Golden Temple at dusk

The famous and unique Golden Temple in Amritsar is a sight to behold. Its more than 500 years old and is a central religious place of the Sikhs. In the early nineteenth century, Maharaja Ranjit Singh covered the upper floors of the gurdwara with gold, which gives it its distinctive appearance and its English name.
