Golden Temple – Durbar Sahib”>
Another photo of one of the most beautiful and spiritual places in the world. All are welcome at the Sikh’s holiest shrine and the atmosphere is very relaxed with people walking and chatting or bathing in the pool.
The architecture, like the religion, is a blend of Hindu and Islamic styles but very different to both. The golden dome represents an inverted lotus flower, a symbol of Sikh devotees’ aim to live a pure life.
Just below the white building you can see the constant stream of devotees queuing to go inside the Golden Temple. (No photos are allowed inside)
