Sacred Places in Sikhism


The primary sacred site in Sikhism is the Sri Harmandir Sahib, known as the Golden Temple in English. It was built from 1588 to 1601 in the Punjab region of India. The temple was built over an excavated pool (amritsar), for which the city around the temple was later named. The Adi Granth, the scripture of Sikhism, was completed and installed in the temple in 1604.
