Amritsar is the spiritual capital of the Sikhs and it means the ‘Holy Pool of Nectar’. It was around 1500 A.D that Sikhism began in northen Punjab, that is a part of Pakistan today. Sikhs believe in one creator, inseperable from creation. It is the Golden Temple that makes this city in Punjab special. Pilgrims from all over India and abroad are attracted to this place and they come here to pay their respects while some come here to undertake voluntary service. You have to only see the Golden temple in India at night when it is immaculately lit up. More so, its golden dome. Your trip to this temple will be complete if you pay a visit to this holy site in India at both the times, day and night. All religious festivals take place in Amritsar and they are Diwali, Holi, Lohri and Baisakhi. The Sikhs celebrate it with folk music, bhangra dancing and fairs. It appears like a carnival outside the Golden Temple during the festival time. It is in November that Guru Nanak Jayanti is celebrated, and Ram Tirath Fair, after Diwali. The sense of community feeling is extended by preparation of food and dining together. This is considered to be fundamental to the Sikh way of worship.
