In the year 1585 they decided to build the Golden Temple and excavated this pool around it known as Amritsar, meaning Pool of the Nectar of Immortality. The city that sprung up around it took on this name. Guru Ram Das, the Third Guru of Sikhism said that the pool should be God’s home, and whoever bathed in it shall obtain all spiritual and temporal advantages [citation].
