The Harmandir Sahib, also known as Darbar Sahib and informally referred to as the Golden Temple, is a prominent Sikh Gurdwara located in the city of Amritsar, Punjab, India.
It was built by the fifth Sikh guru, Guru Arjan, in the 16th Century. The Harimandir Sahib is considered holy by Sikhs. The holiest text of Sikhism, the Guru Granth Sahib, is always present inside the Gurdwara. Its construction was mainly intended to build a place of worship for men and women from all walks of life and all religions to come and worship God equally. Over 100,000 people visit the holy shrine daily for worship.
