Harmandir Sahib (the Golden Temple) is a Sikh Temple located in Amritsar, Punjab, India. Sikhs are considered the most sacred temple of their religion, and a pilgrimage site to go at least once in life to pray and offer their supplications, as well as being a world-class tourist attraction. The temple is best known in the Western world as the Golden Temple, though it can be found as the Golden Temple of Amritsar. However, his real name is Harmandir Sahib. The Guru Ram Das 1534 and 1581 dug a tank which later became known as amritsar (the pond of immortality nectar) and gave the name to the city that developed around it. In due time, a splendid sikh building, Harmandir Sahib (literally God's temple) rises in the center of this cistern and became the supreme center of Sikhism. His sanctuary sanctorum came to host the adi granth compositions of the Sikh Guru and other saints who are considered to have Sikh values and philosophies, for example, Baba Farid, Kabir Originally, in 1574, the site of the temple was surrounded by a small lake in a thick forest, the third of the six Grandi Mogol, Emperor Akbar, who visited the third Guru sikh, Guru Amar Das, at the nearby town of Goindval, was so impressed by the lifestyle of the city that assigned a jagor (the land and the tax collection of several neighborhood villages) to the daughter of Guru, Bhani, as a gift to the or marriage with Bhai Jetha, who later became the fourth Guru Sikh, Guru Ram Das. The latter expanded the lake and built around a small town, which was subsequently called by the name of Guru Ram Das, Guru Ka Chak, Chak Ram Das, or Ram Das Pura. It was during the guidance of the Fifth Guru, Guru Arjan Dev 1581 and 1606, who was built the complete temple. In December 1588, the great Sufi of Lahore, Hazrat Mian Mir, who was a friend of Guru Arjan Dev Ji, began building the building by laying the foundation stone. According to tradition, a bricklayer straightened that stone, but Guru Ram Das told him that, having disbanded the work just completed by such a holy man, disasters could have collapsed on the Temple. The temple was completed in 1601. The temple is surrounded by a small lake of water, known as the Sarovar, which consists of Amrit (Holy Water). There are four entrances to the temple, which symbolize the importance of acceptance and openness; apparently, this concept is a reminiscence of Abraham's tent in the Old Testament: his tent was open on all four sides in order to accommodate travelers from all directions. Anyone who wants to enter the Harmandir Sahib can do it, regardless of religion, color, belief or sex. The only restriction is that the person should not drink alcohol, eat meat, smoke cigarettes or other drugs while in the sanctuary.
