Golden Temple, Amritsar- Symbol Of Faith



I was fortunate enough to be at the Golden temple a few years back during the Birthday Celebrations of the First Guru of the Sikhs, Sri Guru Nanak Dev Jee. The whole premises of the Gurudwara was lit up and there were festivities all around. The amount of faith seen in the people was unbelievable. People from all walks of life come down to this place to be a part of the festivities and seek the blessings of the Guru. It all starts around 3 AM in the morning and lasts till the Fireworks in the night. It's a kind of a show that you would not like to miss when you are around.  I was there for 3 days to be the part of the celebrations and believe me, it was an experience. I have been to Golden temple a couple of times but this was a different experience altogether.

Here are some photographs that I clicked during the 3 days..

 Fireworks!!!!






















The Golden Temple has entrances from all four sides symbolizing the fact that people from all walks of life are welcome. I guess this is what the world needs to understand today what Guru Nanak Dev jee taught years back-
God is one,
but he has innumerable forms.

  6. Amritsar is a place which is the Mecca of the people of the Sikh religion, because of the presence of the most amazing complex which is now called the shrine of the Sikh religion. According to a legend, the place was initially found by Buddha as a spiritual place for meditation. It is said that he was greatly moved by the waters and their calmness. For the same reason, or may be some other; the fourth Guru Sikh Ramdas decided to settle here in the year 1475 and decided to shape the pond exactly in the shape of a square. After that, a temple was erected in the centre of the lake, and thus Amritsar Golden temple harmandir Sahib came to origin.

  8. nice post Amritsar Tour is one of the top tourist destinations in North-Western India Every year huge international and domestic tourists visit this best tourist place of India.
    The Golden Temple is one of the most revered religious sites in the country. Traditionally known as the Harmandir Sahib or the temple of Hari, the Supreme God, the temple gets its name from its gold plated structure. Most people take up Amritsar Tours just to visit this holy place.
