Pilgrimage

Pilgrimage is condemned by the Gurus; the real pilgrimage is to God who lives in the heart. However, many Sikhs will visit Amritsar in the Punjab and the Golden Temple in order to identify with the historic roots of their faith.

For Sikhs, all space is holy since God lives everywhere. When Guru Nanak Dev Ji visited Makkah he had his feet towards the Ka’bah. When Muslims objected that he had pointed his feet towards the House of God he asked them to point his feet to where God did not live. All time is holy since God has been true from the beginning, is true now, and will always be true.
