Gumbo's Pic of the Day, June 28, 2015: The Golden Temple In Amritsar, Punjab, India

The Golden Temple In Amritsar, Punjab, India

 

The Golden Temple, or Harmandir Sahib, is the holiest Sikh Temple and is breathtakingly beautiful. But what makes the visit so very unforgettable and enjoyable is the relaxed atmosphere. Many of the pilgrims come from villages or cities where foreigners are hardly ever seen and they loved having photos taken with us or simply dared a quick hello.

The Golden Temple sits in the middle of a lake and is accessed by a shaded walkway. Bleach-white buildings of the most refined architecture surround the lake - the perfect frame for such beauty. Arcades provide the much-needed shelter from the heat and are used to doze off after or before lining up to get inside the very temple.

Again some amazing photos, Gilles!  The people interest me as much or perhaps even more than the beautiful temple.  Studies of the human face are often difficult to capture in a digital image. but these are great.

 

Thanks for sharing.
