ituated in the vicinity of the Golden Temple, several old and dilapidated structures are on the verge of falling apart. It seems not much has been thought about their conservation and restoration. A locked decaying dharamshala stands testimony to this. Close to it is the damaged and abandoned building which used to house a branch of the Central Bank of India. Not far away from the Golden Temple Post Office, the structure still has a statue standing above its entrance greeting the visitors.
