Visitors are initially greeted by the building called Palace of Gold or American Taj Mahal (it is not made of gold though like our Golden Temple in Amritsar). It is a photogenic building and a more peaceful one than the temple as well, as the actual temple is always bustling with chants, slogans and prayers by the devotees. The interesting fact is that this palace is built in a way where everywhere one looks, it oversees lush green mountains of West Virginia. An interesting feature is the intricate design on the walls of the palace and the elaborate pieces of peacocks and other beautiful glass paintings which were actually made by hand by the volunteers!
