  • hey guys Sam here with a final video of my trip to Amritsar in Punjab India

  • with a few hours to spare before traveling onwards to Bangalore I made

  • the most of my time in the city with a visit to Durgiana temple (Durgiana Manir - Silver Temple) which is like

  • a replica of the golden temple plus I could leave without feasting on an

  • Amritsari Punjabi Thali covered of butter from the naan once again I was

  • joined by David from David's been here and deepak from Amritsar Walking Tours so

  • let's go and explore Amritsar together one last time

  • good afternoon good afternoon guys I'm here with my good friend Deepak I'm

  • of Amritsar Walking Tours how are you my friend I'm fine so you're gonna be showing us a

  • couple places we're gonna be eating what's the first place we're going the

  • first place we are going inside the Hindu temple yeah which is similar the

  • architectures are very similar to the Golden Temple but it's a Hindu temple as it is

  • busy inside it is a busy but not like so we're get a bit of an appetite walking

  • around and I can't wait because we're gonna be having Punjabi Thali

  • yeah yes it's about the Amritsari special foods like it's about a Makhani dal

  • that again is about chickpeas it's about vegetables and one more one or two

  • more things like Amritsari tea so it is a very big thali oh my gosh

  • on entering the temple you ring the bell

  • so this is a Hindu temple which is a known as a Durgiana Mandir it is also

  • known as a lakshmi narayan mandir however its architecture is a very

  • similar to the golden temple as i told to you it is dedicated to one of the

  • goddess hindu Durgiana lakshmi is one of the goddess of Hindu

  • which is goddess of wealth and narayan which is protector of the world so there

  • are literally two temples inside this big complex come with me to explore this

  • the similarities between this Hindu temple and the golden temple are

  • apparent as soon as you walk in one major difference though is the crowds

  • over here there's hardly anyone so instead of having to wait in line to get

  • inside the main part of the temple we were just able to walk right in so right

  • now I'm just wandering around the perimeter of the temple so I can get the

  • best view of it with the sun shining on it hopefully that will make it golden

  • literally Durgiana temple is one of the most important Hindu temples and all

  • of Amritsar are it is sometimes referred to as the silver temple because of its

  • silver doors where you can see the embossed images of deities however

  • despite the silver in its name it often gets compared to the golden temple and

  • it's easy to see why just like the golden temple Durgiana temple sits in

  • the middle of a lake and it's accessible by a bridge plus its central dome and

  • outer walls are covered in gold making it look like a miniature of the golden

  • temple - all the crowds

  • well that is one of the prettiest hindu temples in india but who are my favorite

  • and very underrated attraction in the city yeah I mean it's not really that

  • many people here and I think we're ready for the Amritsari Punjabi Thali are

  • you ready you better believe it man I'm starving let's do it now we are going to

  • the Bharawan Da Dhaba which is just next to the Golden Temple is the famous

  • for rich Amritsari Thali would pack in here yeah

  • Sonali dream of having a million especially to study things special thali

  • special deluxe thali ok the exciting moment has come the thali have arrived looks

  • delicious so before we eat it was taking a little bit of a tour so start with the

  • bread this is a butter naan a so this is a this is yogurt boondi rita the chickpeas called chole chole the first choice of Amritsar people

  • and the third one is Shahi paneer and the fourth one is Makhani dal oh my gosh my

  • favorite kind of daal yeah black lentils off

  • copious amounts of butter and over here we have rice we have both a little bit

  • of rice a little bit of bread and a few different curries to try so let's dig in yeah

  • so I'm going to break off a piece of the butter naan I'm gonna go for the Makhani dal

  • starting with the dal I love it yeah yesterday I gave the whole whole

  • container you guys serve it's like a buttery explosion of flavor got nine than naan

  • that's so buttery yeah some part to her a little bit crispy but in the other

  • parts are just perfectly soft now the actual dal itself I'm gonna try

  • it oh my gosh that's so good so much flavor so much water paneer

  • we've got a big piece of paneer put it on there enjoy about it

  • Oh

  • I've died and gone to paneer heaven I just love any curry that has paneer I

  • love paneer all the time he's a very creamy you know so creamy

  • here but really this is we call this chahe paneer paneer the cheese and

  • Changi means royal royal my god it's a royal feast yeah like we are moving on

  • to the chole which is the chickpeas that is some more that butter not all that my

  • hands are covered in butter look at that covered in butter from the naan

  • knowing they're gonna put in a little bit of chole and it goes yeah

  • yours wonderful is that each curry has such a distinct flavor and taste it's

  • not like they're all the same they're all completely different yeah I guess

  • the last thing for me to do to try a little bit in the rice yeah with the

  • right when you put some paneer in here and you mix it around a bit and just take a

  • bite

  • to be honest I prefer using the naan I like rice but if I didn't have my curry

  • that was good yeah you can't go wrong with either naan parantha both are winning combos

  • alright guys so that veg thali was legendary thank you so much deepak for taking us

  • there it was so good that we basically finished it all David was actually the

  • one who didn't leave one bite it was so delicious everything was so

  • good and just around the corner we found a place to have a chai and this is a
