Visiting the Golden Temple, Amritsar, India
Why Go Now: Less frenetic than the Taj Mahal’s Agra, the spiritual capital of the Sikhs is home to the holy shrine the Golden Temple, a moving study in art, architecture, and religion. Up to 3,000 pilgrims visit the temple each day to pay homage to God. As Atlanta travel agent Betty Jo Currie says, “There’s nothing like an ancient religion”—not to mention a 500-year-old temple covered in 365 pounds of solid gold—“to make you feel like a speck.”
