Punjab is primarily famous worldwide for its temples and gurudwaras. Each of these gurudwaras from Amritsar to Anandpur Sahib has a unique story of origin. Despite their superficial differences, every gurudwara has some things in common. You will find a Darbar Sahib in every gurudwara where they keep the holy book called Guru Granth Sahib on a Takht. One of the most astounding features of Sikh gurdwaras includes the langar or the community kitchen that serves free community meals to every visitor. We at Rental Tempo Travellers provide outstanding tour packages to visit Sikh temples in Punjab by car. Here are some of the temples that we cover:
Also known as the Harmandir Sahib, Golden Temple is a sacred Sikh gurdwara in Amritsar, Punjab. A marble walkway and a pool of holy water called the Amrit Sarovar surrounds the temple.

It is one of the five cardinal Sikh Takhts located in the district of Anandpur Sahib. It is the birthplace of Khalsa, the brave Sikhs who fought to protect their values, principles, towns, and temples. Khalsa follows a five K’s tradition, which includes Kesh or uncut hair), Kangha or wooden comb, Kara or the bracelet, Kirpan or the sword, and Kacchera or shorts.
