Definitely worth a visit. No photos inside where the real beauty is hidden. Absolutely stunning. Very peaceful once inside. A long reflective walk to the temple with lots of greenery. But very money orientated and some of the staff were quite rude. Make sure you pack light if you go here and don't take anything too valuable as you have... More

But here some a few facts to consider: 1) this golden temple is less than 20 years old, not an ancient structure. 2) It is so popular among domestic pilgrims that they designed a... More

Very beautiful temple. However, everything is money oriented here, right from the parking to the amount of time spent allowed to spend in main gold temple. No cameras or other valuables things allowed inside.

This temple is very famous in Tamil Nadu. There is a very long path to reach the main temple. This temple represents the traditional and spiritual value of Tamil Nadu.

Long walk if you are entering free , however its worth going till the end. We had bought the Rs100 Seva ticket to enter the VIP gate however there are still long way to reach the main temple.
