A spectacle & nightview to behold.....the precinct of the Harmandir Sahib (The Golden Temple) of Amritsar showing the east gate on the left & the twin towers of the Langar which is a community kitchen & dining hall which can accommodate the maximum of about 3,000 people (free meals) at any one time. The water reflection is from the man-made pool where it is reputed that the water has miraculous powers to heal. Here is a link to the Langar & its history & significance:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Langar_(Sikhism)
p.s. the picture was taken hand-held as tripods are not permitted within the temple precinct.

THANK YOU to everyone who commented, voted & to Minty805, Curtain, Ugly, alanb, Jasper87, Stephen_B, Alan_Baseley, pamelajean, DavidLaverty for the much appreciated UAs. GrinGrinGrin
