The present-day Gurudwara was rebuilt in 1764 by Jassa Singh Ahluwalia with the help of other Sikh Misls. In the early nineteenth century, Maharaja Ranjit Singh secured the Punjab region from outside attack and covered the upper floors of the Gurudwara with gold, which gives it its distinctive appearance and its English name. Your guide will give you more knowledge about Sikh religion, its history and people. After your visit to the The Golden Temple, your tour ends.

The Golden Temple and related history including the sad drama in 1984 greatly exceeded my expectations. The 1919 massacre memorial very moving with a beautiful park, as was the Partition Museum.
