The Golden Temple (informal name in Sikhism), is the most sacred and holiest shrine of Sikhism (the holy-of-holies of Sikhism).
The official name of the Temple in Sikhism is: Harmandir Sahib or Darbar Sahib, (Punjabi: ਹਰਿਮੰਦਰ ਸਾਹਿਬ ) which means literally (Harmandir Sahib meaning: The Abode of God).
It is located in Amritsar (meaning: The Pool of the Nectar of Immortality), the holiest city in Sikhism, in the state of Punjab, India.
Sikh devotees, for whom the Temple is a symbol of infinite freedom and spiritual independence, come to the Temple from all over the world to enjoy its environs and offer their prayers.

The Gold plating on the Golden temple makes it so unique and the reflection in the water gives an etherial beauty to the whole complex.

When I come to Amritsar for my work I try to come there everyday.
I took this picture two days ago at dusk when I saw this man who was following the evening prayer which started inside the Temple and that we could all listen outside.

If Heaven exits I wish it looks like this…
