Similar in architecture to the Golden Temple (Hari Mandir Sahib), Durgiana Temple, a Hindu shrine & dedicated to Lakshmi and Narayan, is situated in the old city of Amritsar, Punjab. The deities were installed in 1925 by Pandit Madan Mohan Malaviya, a savant and statesman. This Hindu temple was constructed during the 16th century and devoted to Goddess Durga. It looks like the Golden Temple of the Sikh and also has a Sarovar (kund or pond) in the middle of it where people take a bath and drink water (Amrit). Durgiana temple is a symbol of tranquility, peace, and spirituality which welcomes countless visitors every day. Here, people experience the sounds of sacred chants, impressive architecture, clean and pure environment, etc. At every morning and evening, people listen to Bhajans (devotional chants) which creates a mystical atmosphere.

The main temple of this historical place is located in the middle known as Shree Lakshmi Narayan Mandir, which is accessed by the visitors through a marble path. While following this path, people look at the sparkling gold ‘shikhar’ and pass through amazingly engraved silver doors. Moreover, during circumambulation, visitors watch religious inscriptions and carvings that decorate the exterior walls. While inside Shree Lakshmi Narayan Mandir, one bows down in front of the statues of revered gods to take blessings. The devotees pay their revence to the floating statues of Lord Vishnu and Lord Krishna. Within Durgiana Temple compound is located 600-years-old Shitala Mata temple and Bada (big/ large) Hanuman Mandir. Moreover, people can go to the Langar hall where countless pilgrims eat free food every day. Durgiana Temple opens daily and entry into it is free of cost. Best time to visit Durgiana Temple is early morning hours (before sunshine), as pilgrims can get a chance to take a bath in the water tank (Sarovar).
