The Golden Temple at AmritsarGolden Temple at Amritsar The site upon which the Golden Temple is now located was originally a small lake in the midst of a quiet forest. A meditation retreat since antiquity, the serenity of the place once drew Guru Nanak, the founder of the Sikh religion, who took up residence upon the lake's shores. After Guru Nanak's death, his disciples continued to frequent the site, and over the centuries it has become the most sacred Sikh shrine in the world.
