Day 02 Amritsar
After breakfast visit Harmandir Sahib (Golden Temple). The Harimandir Sahib, now called the Golden Temple, is a living symbol of spiritual and historical traditions of the Sikhs. It is said that Guru Amar Das found at the edge of the pool the desired herb to cure the skin ailment of Guru Angad (the second Guru of the Sikhs). However, the persistent local tradition best highlighting the medicinal properties of the water of the pond is the story of Rajni, daughter of Rai Duni Chand, and the subsequent cure of her leprous husband after taking a dip into the pond. It is said that Ram Das (at that time on a visit to a nearby area) visited the place in connection with the above episode and was so much impressed with the beauty of the site that he decided to found a place of pilgrimage here. The plan of the Harimandir was conceived by Guru Arjan Dev jee. It was decided by the Guru to build the temple in the middle of the tank.
It was in 1802 that Maharaja Ranjit Singh gilded the roof of the temple with gold. It was then that the temple came to be known as the Golden temple.
Akal Takhat Sahib
Akal Takhat means the Throne of the Immortal and is the highest political institution of the Sikhs. "Akal" means "The Timeless One" - another term for God. "Takhat" means "throne" in Persian. The Akal Takhat is an impressive building that sits directly in front of the causeway leading to the Golden Temple in Amritsar. The Akal Takhat was founded by Guru Hargobind on June 15, 1606 and was established as the place from which the spiritual and temporal concerns of the Sikh community could be acted upon.
Gurudwaras Baba Atal Sahib
Gurdwara Baba Atal has been raised in the revered memory of Guru Hargobind's 9 year old Sahibzada Baba Atal Rai. It is situated next to Golden Temple. The child was the personification of something wondrous. Through a miracle Baba Atal Rai once revived a dead child. Guru Hargobind was convinced that Sikh religion did not believe in any kind of miracle and that it was an uncalled for interference in the ways of god and the cosmic system. The Guru, therefore, felt annoyed with his son. To atone for the intervention in the divine ways, the child left for his heavenly abode. It is at the point of the terrestrial exist of Baba Atal Rai that a nine storeys Gurdwara symbolic of his 9 years of exisatence was constructed. It is known as Gurdwara Baba Atal.
In the afternoon visit other historical gurdwara's of Amritsar.
Gurudwaras Ramsar Sahib
Gurdwara, Ramsar is located south to south-east of Harimandir Sahib.
Alongside the Ramsar Gurdwara is situated the small sarovar called Ramsar. This is the location where in 1603, Fifth Patsahi Guru Arjun Dev jee spent over a year in semi-seclusion along with his scribe, Bhai Gurdas to compile the holy Adi Granth, the sacred Sikh scripture for the first time. The sacred volume which now spans 1430 pages, was finally completed in 1604. It was then installed with due honor and ceremony in the Harimandir Sahib (Golden Temple) Amritsar.
To make the surroundings more agreeable, Guru ji had a small tank dug out which was then named Ramsar after his father, Guru Ram Das. It was at this newly contructed site that Guru Arjan Dev Jee composed his famous Bani "Sukhmani Sahib", the "Psalm of Peace", and with Bhai Gurdas as his scribe compiled the Adi Granth during the period 1603-04. Gurdwara Ramsar is a small marble-lined hall topped by a gilded, fluted lotus dome and was built in 1855 at the site of the original shrine.This was the place where the current, perpetual and honoured Sikh Guru, Guru Granth Sahib was first created. This Gurudwara is of special significance.

Guru ki Vadali
Guru ki Vadali is the birthplace of the Sixth Guru, Sri Guru Hargobind Sahib, the son of Guru Arjan Dev Ji. To celebrate the birth of Sri Guru Hargobind Sahib, Guru Arjan Dev Ji constructed a big well at this place. This well had six Persian wheels to draw out the water and thus came to be known as Chheharta, the well with six wheels. This well helped in removing water scarcity in the region and enabled the greening of the fields.
