Golden Temple

The Golden Temple is also known as Darbar Sahib or Shri Harmandir Sahib. It is the holiest Gurdwara and the most important pilgrimage site of Sikhism. The Golden Temple is known for its beautiful architecture, the golden walls of the temple and the large compound which is surrounded by a pond (Sarovar) that was completed by Guru Ram Das Ji in 1577. Guru Arjan Dev Ji– the fifth Guru of Sikhism, requested Sai Mian Mir, a Muslim Pir of Lahore, to lay its foundation stone in 1589. In 1604, Guru Arjan placed a copy of the Adi Granth in Harmandir Sahib, calling the site Ath Sath Tirath. There is a historical connection between Gobindgarh Fort & Golden Temple-It is that after winning the Gobindgarh fort, Maharaja Ranjit Singh went to Shri Harmandir Sahib for a darshan, to thank the Supreme one & he also offered gold as Shukrana to the Golden Temple. The capture of the Gobindgarh fort was a valuable acquisition for Maharaja Ranjit Singh. One of the main reasons for the consolidation of the fort most likely was to guard the city of Amritsar and Shri Harmandir sahib from invaders.

Gobindgarh Fort is just 2.1 Km away from the Golden Temple.
