Akal Takht, Amritsar Reviews
The temple and the surroundings are very serene and blissful. One can witness the amount of devotion . Langar is something unimaginable, serving the food to devotees all 24 hrs. They should improve the roads leading to the temple from car parking area. They are narrow, with pot holes and dirty . The road to such a holy place should be very good. Some one should come forward and see to this aspect of the city/temple.
The visit to this holy Temple is such a blissful experience that I cannot put into words. The divine presence of Waheguru soothed my soul to its innermost layer. The ambience of the premise is the manifestation of heaven on earth.
Well maintained and cleaned historical. Popular and famous place e from where Hukamnamas are being issued by Five head priests.
Originally known as Akal Bunga, the building directly opposite the Harmandir Sahib was founded by sixth Sikh Guru, Guru Hargobind, as a symbol of political sovereignty and where spiritual and temporal concerns of the Sikh people could be addressed.Along with Baba Buddha and Bhai Gurdas, the sixth Sikh Gurubuilt a 9 foot high concrete slab. When Guru Hargobind revealed the platform on 15 June 1606, he put on two swords: one indicated his spiritual authority (piri) and the other, his temporal authority (miri).
Greatplacetowork worship every Sikh never want to miss an opportunity to be here I love this place by heart whenever I get time I try to visit it by purity
