The Char Dham yatra is a journey every Hindus must undertake in their lifetime. North India also has important Buddhist sites such as Kushinagar, Sarnath, Sanchi and Bodhgaya. The Gurudwara at Harmandir Sahib, AKA the Golden Temple, is in the holy city of Amritsar. It is the centre of the Sikh religion. The list of religious places in Indiais very long and a lifetime would not be enough to fully explore and understand the power of these incredible places.
