They visited the Sri Harmandir Sahib (Golden Temple) to see the aftermath of Operation Blue Star, where the 1984 attacks by the Indian paramilitary troops to oust out Sikh extremists happened. The attacks killed hundreds of people and left tons of damage to the buildings and structures of the Sri Harmandir Sahib complex, the holiest shrine of Sikhism.
