I arrived in Amritsar and headed straight for the Golden Temple, which is the main temple for the Sikh religion. Here people are able to stay and be fed for free, so i stayed in the room designated for foreigners. I then took in the wonderful Golden Temple itself which is surrounded by a moat called the Pool of Nectar, and then further buildings around it which are lit up at night.
So I was glad to be back in India, but unfortunately that night I had a bout of the 'delhi belly' and was rather sick indeed; have been recovering today, and got a train ticket to Varanasi.
