Photographer's Note

This is another photo of the golden temple as seen from the backside.This temple in the city of amritsar in punjab in north india is a holy place for the sikhs(a religion in india) as it is their pilgrimage centre(gurudwara).I have already given a note in my previous photo posted of this place where i have said that on the entrance to this temple there is a small pool of water which the pilgrims have to step into,in order to wash their feet;also every other person who is a non-sikh has to put a handkerchief or any other cloth on his head as a covering(the sikhs already have their turbans).The white structure to the right of the temple in this photo,is the entrance.Anyone who is planning to visit north india should make a stopover at this place and visit this wonderful temple which is gold plated.Amritsar has also got other places like the famous Indo-Pak Wagah border just a few kms. from the city and also the historic jallianwallah baug.
