The view of the city from the balcony and the main golden temple are simply stunning. It was a bit misty but that didn’t ruin the view for us. I wanted to hike up the steps but my parents came with us so it was...More

I took the red shared truck from old town to the village for 60B each way to the temple. The temple is nice, albeit pretty crowded with tourists. You get a gorgeous view of the valley and the layer of smog over it. Lots of...More
