OUR WORLD OF RELIGIOUS PLACES




AKAL (eternal / timeless) TAKHT at GOLDEN TEMPLE, AMRITSAR, PUNJAB.




THE 'AKAL TAKHT' MEANING THE THRONE OF THE TIMELESS is one of the five TAKHTS of the Sikhs. It is located in the HARMANDIR sahib complex at AMRITSAR in PUNJAB.(WIKIPEDIA).

Though all five TAKHTS are equally venerated,it enjoys a special status. It is the oldest of the five Takhts. It is situated opposite to Harmander Sahib (Golden Temple). Golden temple stands for spiritual guidance and Akal Takht stands for temporal authority of the Sikhs.

It is one of the majestic landmarks of India. People from far and wide throng here on religious occasions. Visiting this sacred place is akin to having an unforgettable experience in spirituality.


Friends,welcome here as always.
