HARMANDIR

At the centre of the courtyard of the temple stands an exceptionally long pole of sal wood about 80 feet high, covered with iron pikes. This flag-staff was presented to the temple by Maharaja Jung Bahadur of Nepal. There is anunderground hall about 90 feet by 46 feet. It is for the purpose of shelter to the pilgrims who come on the occasion of the birth-day of Guru Govind Singh.

On the second story of the temple the priests read the Vedas, translated into Gurumukhi. On the third storey a museum is going to be established in which all the sacred relies will be placed.

So far as the architecture of the temple is concerned, t he whole temple is built on modern lines. It is a magnificent edifice and marble slabs have been liberally used. The masons have been able to give a wonderful face-lift to the old temple. There is an all-gold kalasa on the amalaka of the temple.
