Title: At first I saw the title. I thought it would be related to a religious based story. But one thing I was sure The Golden Temple would be the centre of this story and what would be the story this temple would be involved with it. Author has given more priority to this temple , everyone can understand it after observing the title.

Cover: After that I observed the cover photo of this book. It depicted the content inside in this book must be a love story that would be involved with The Golden Temple and the temple would play an important role in this story. At the bottom of the cover , there had been written “ A love story combines the History of Golden Temple and Sikhism”- it proved that the story would have to be love story centred in The Golden Temple.

Blurb: Then I read the blurb. It was enough to make out this is a love story, isn’t a spiritual book. The blurb portion was written well. One can guess what would be in the content after reading the blurb portion. It was short but well enough. After observing the blurb I understood it would be a perfect blend of love, religion, sacrifice and forgiveness.

Storyline: This is a simple heart touching story in which every guy and girl can be connected emotionally. The story defines how sometimes little things like a simple bus journey can bring twist and turn your life to experience another adventurous journey and how every person who crosses your path might have a special role to play in this adventurous journey of yours. The book will take you to the ride of Golden Temple and Sikhism in details. The temple in this story is the main protagonist itself. Moreover it’s a book of a perfect amalgamation of love, religion, spirituality, hate ,difference and forgiveness.

Narration: Author has used simple language while writing this book. It has taken the book to another level of its success as anyone can read this book and can understand the meaning. Simple language can bring interest to read among all kinds of readers. This book is edited well. I haven’t found errors, might be I have overlooked by mistake.

Characters: Here , Raj is the main protagonist who is pursuing bachelor degree of IT engineering in Jalandhar. Geet is another character who tells Raj about The Golden Temple, waheguru and Sikhism. The temple itself plays an important role throughout the whole story as if it is real and important character of this saga. All the characters are characterized well.

Hence, The Golden Temple is a book to know more about the temple and Sikhism religion. The story gives us a message how to forgive , how to handle the situation and how to take decision when you are in such kind of situation. I would like to recommend this book to all romance book lovers.
