An old sikh at the Golden Temple

By sawsengee  
Street capture of an old sikh (nihang singh) at the Golden Temple (Harmandir Sahib) in Amritsar, Punjab...........his blue turban was voluminous, so much so, he had to hold it in place with steel cables & steel balls & topping the turban with a stainless steel Khanda Crest (one of three and most important symbols of Sikhism). Here is a further information of the Khanda:
