Golden Temple, one of the most sacred holy sites for Sikhs around the world, is being renovated with 160 kg gold worth INR 50 crore. The gold plating is being done on the four domes at the entrance of the temple. The renovation amount has been collected through kar sewa or voluntary contribution made by the devotees.
An estimated 40 kg of gold will be used on each of the domes of the four deodis. Gold-plating of the maindeodi near Ghanta Ghar is underway since April through kar sewa (voluntarily service).
