Golden Temple / Amritsar, Punjab, India

Totally underrated spot on most visitor’s itinerary (for foreign tourists at least), this Sikh temple is a complete gem. Not only because it’s literally covered in gold but because it resonates more beauty, spirituality, hospitality, cleanliness, and serenity than any other single place visited — anywhere. Best viewed at night or early morning, to see the temple literally glow as the light moves across it and the twice-daily ceremony in which the holy book is taken out or brought back in to the temple.
