Temple Harmandir Sahib – the main shrine of the Sikhs

Don’t know what to see in India, so that the excursion will be remembered for a long time? One of the obvious options will be the Temple Harmandir Sahib – the main shrine of the Sikhs. It is popularly called the Golden Temple, because the external facade is almost completely, except for the lower tier, covered with gilding. The building is located near the lake, the waters of which are considered to be sacred and curative by local residents. According to their beliefs, in the pond there is the elixir of immortality. In ancient times, the shores of this lake were a favorite place for meditation by Hindu sages.

All tourists are allowed into the temple, regardless of their religion or nationality. To show their openness to the guests, the architects made four huge entrances on each side of the complex, so that as many people as possible could visit this place. Gilded walls are inlaid with precious stones, painted by hand by great artists of that era. Before entering the temple, the tourist must take off his shoes and perform the ritual washing of the feet.

The beach is surrounded by high capes and is a bay of natural origin. There are rarely waves here – the sea is almost always calm. The sand on the shore is amazingly clean, and the palm trees lean with their leaves all the way to the shore.

The length of the beach is a little over 3 km. It has everything for a good and comfortable rest:
sun beds;
umbrellas;
cafes and bars;
hotels;
rent kayaks, bicycles.
Palolem is literally filled with national color. Often you can see cows walking right by the water. Hats are located along the coastline – houses with wicker walls.

You can make excursion trips around the beach, for example, on the island of butterflies. Tourists are given plenty of opportunities – from the usual rest with the contemplation of the beautiful sunsets to the elite walk on a yacht with diving. The developed infrastructure and the presence of wild natural areas attract a large number of tourists from Europe.
