Golden Temple, Amritsar, Punjab, India by RODNEY GIDDINS

Golden Temple, Amritsar, Punjab, India

The Golden Temple at Amritsar, India, is Sikhism's holiest shrine. I queued for over an hour with thousands of pilgrims and a few tourists to glimpse this historic icon. The mirrored ceiling at the entrance captured the colour and throngs of people and is a powerful reminder of the importance of these cultural and religious sites.
