Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi on Saturday paid obeisance at the Golden Temple here in an unscheduled visit to the city.
Along with his security cover, Gandhi reached the Golden Temple after 4 PM.
He avoided taking VIP entry and stood in queue along with other devotees to reach sanctum sanctorum of the Golden Temple.
He first performed a circumambulation and then offered 'Karah Prashad' at the sanctum sanctorum of the temple.
The scion of the Nehru-Gandhi family was accompanied by Congress MP from Amritsar Gurjit Singh Aujla and other local party leaders.
However, he did not talk to the media.
"He (Rahul Gandhi) was on personal visit," party sources said.
Notably, it was the first visit of Congress Vice President to Punjab after the party stormed to power in the state by winning 2017 assembly elections.
