A glimpse at Heaven’s gate

A glimpse at  Heaven's gate

Last Wednesday at sunset I took this picture of the Golden temple in Amritsar (Punjab) at sunset.
There is no edition on this image.

The Golden Temple in Amritsar is the most exalted of all Sikh shrines, drawing pilgrims from near and far for centuries.
The temple’s story began some four centuries ago when the third Sikh Guru Amar Das asked Guru Ram Das (who succeeded him) to build a central place for the congregation of the Sikhs.
Guru Arjan Dev completed the work started by Guru Ram Das in the 16th century.
The gurdwara has four entrance doors, called deoris, in all four directions-symbolic of the new faith that made no distinction between caste and creed.
People could enter and bow in any direction they preferred.

For the Sikh community the Harmandir Sahib Gurdwara Golden Temple is the final spiritual “vision,” journey’s end or beginning.
