Golden Temple – India

Located in Amritsar, India, the Golden Temple is the holiest Gurdwara — a place of assembly and prayer — of the Sikh religion. Every day, it receives over 100,000 people who come to worship around the shrine.

Construction of the temple began in 1577 and finished in 1604, but it was destroyed several times by the Mughal Empire, until being finally completed in 1776. The Golden Temple also has a community-run kitchen that serves vegetarian meals to any visitors without discrimination.
