Opposite to the entrance o the Golden temple is the historical monument Akal Takht. The continuous chanting of Gurubani makes it a devine place to visit

A visit to Akal Takht tells you the history of the Golden Temple complex with the priests praying and chanting. Each room has a priest and Guru Granth Sahib bring prayed upon and read. Very calming experience. Operation Blue Star history can also be found here.

The Akal Takht, situated in the premises of Harmandir Sahib, is a seat of power of Sikh religion. A must visit for a tourist who is in the premises of Golden Temple.

It's really worth being to golden temple though it was my second visit. If you have been here in 2015 please visit again they have changed it completely. Many statues are added before entering over here. It's awesome. I have been here in nov 2015 and again visited in nov 2016. It's totally new while entering the temple.
