  • Very beautiful temple. Worth one time visit. Not for spirituality , just for sight seeing. This is just my opinion. Be aware you need to deposit your phones at the entrance which will be handed back to you at the exit. Its better to leave your valuables locked in your car, just my opinion. Nominal entrance fee.There is a long long walk to the temple through their shops and walkway which may get a tad tedious during peak hours. We happened to reach this place at around 8 in the evening so we could just zip past real fast. Temple looks good in the evening when it is lit up. There is a big seva list in case you want to see the deity up close. The star shaped walkway to the temple has a lot of space to relax in case you get tired. There are good number of restrooms too. Lot of eateries around the temple. Ample parking space.

  • Absolute divinity in this temple. The discipline maintained and the preparedness with which they conduct any event definitely must be witnessed by everyone to learn from. The volunteers need a special mention for their tireless work.

  • Awesome temple. But unfortunately no photography allowed. Golden temple is looking awesome. The surrounding is also beautifully maintained by management. Water fountains are added top ups to the wonderful experience. Would recommend to all.

  • A very well planned temple. A beautiful place. Well organized. We went there twice consecutive day. Since we reached in evening we thought we will pay a visit even though we plan to come back in morning as planned. It was almost closing time so we took the 100/- ticket and rushed. And it was a great experience. The temple looked like in fire and the goddess was glowing. It's a breathtaking view. You will forever remember that view in your mind. In the morning we took 250/- and 500/- tickets and it wasn't that great. They had removed the Crown from the goddess and you hardly sit for few seconds inside the main temple and you aren't even allowed to touch the ground with head or a proper namaste. You get aarti from far away only. It felt like we were thrown out of the place. At least in the 100/- ticket we were allowed to give a bath to the goddess idle just outside the stairs of main temple. 250/- and 500/- tickets aren't allowed to do so as you are allowed to sit inside main temple. Food was very fulfilling to stomach. My mandate would be to go with 100/- ticket. Of course you have to go in the busy lane. 250/- and 500/- have separate lane which takes you in less time and allow you to just sit inside for few seconds. The sweets sold inside are so yummy. Had an amazing experience in Golden temple. The star shape sure is very long to walk. However it helps you take rest from time to time, feed your kid from time to time, or help yourself with nature's call. Also that helps avoid stampede of any kind. It's a perfectly planned temple. Go for it!!

  • This place is very peaceful and natural built up in front of a hill. Well panned design archtechture... just awesome
