Help and Info

My third trip to India took me to Varanasi, Orchha, Agra, Amritsar and Delhi. I'd read that the Holi celebration in the Silver Temple in Amritsar is very large, so I chose to be there on that special day. I was quite disappointed, however — the festivities were limited to the inside of the temple only, and everything was on a very small scale. Still, the trip was well worth it and I wouldn't miss it for the world...

The Golden Temple in Amritsar is absolutely amazing. The main srine is undoubtedly the main attraction, so take your time and go upstairs also, but the entire building complex is fascinating. Well worth visiting are the enormous dining halls, where you can share a meal or at least a chai with the friendly sikhs.
