The Golden Temple is the most important temple of the Sikh religion and it’s the main reason tourists come to Amritsar.

Not only is it free to enter the temple, you can also go to the communal kitchen for a free meal of lentil stew, rice and flat bread. The most famous part of this huge religious institution is the small golden temple building located on an island in a man made lake, however, other parts of the complex are also interesting such as the Central Sikh Museum and it’s collection of paintings.
