Last Friday as I was walking around the Golden Temple’s samovar for the last time, I saw this lady who was in praise.
This is one of my last shots before leaving Amritsar with everlasting memories of grace and beauty in my eyes, in my mind, in my soul.
I kept this picture as I took it and for once there is no editing work on Photoshop.

This devotee is in praise at the Athsath Tirath, a marble platform cast in the shape of a manji which is only a minor member of the architectural commune of Sri Harimander, but it abounds in as much sanctity.
It is said bathing once at the Athsath Tirath is as auspicious as the pilgrimage of the 68 holy places in India.
The Athsath Tirath is situated opposite the har Ki Paureey in the center of the eastern bank of the Amrit-sarovar.
It stands close to the Gurdwara Dukh-Bhanjani ber.
It is said Sri Guru Arjan Dev ji, while supervising excavation of the tank, used to sit here.
After Sri Guru Arjan Dev ji was able to obtain from Baba Mohanji the Holy Pothi, containing Bani, it was brought from Goindwal first at the Athsath Tirath.
