It takes my breath away...........

By sawsengee  
Night shot of the Sri Harmandir Sahib (Golden Temple) of Amritsar Punjab.......a panorama with the Langgar (Ramgarhia bunga) from the left (open kitchen serving free meals to everyone of any religion, creed or faith & can seat over 3000 people at a single time ), the south entrance (Harmandir Sahib has 4 entrances facing north, south, east, & west welcoming everyone from everywhere), the golden temple linked by the pathway both seem floating in the middle of the pond where the water is reputed to have magical healing powers & the white parameter wall with the clock tower facing the west entrance. Here are links for further explanation of this wonderful spiritually charged temple complex:

A BIG THANK YOU to everyone who commented, voted & to Ju Barney for the GEA & those who so generously bestowed the picture with their UAs (too many to mention here but I know & appreciate you from my heart).......WOW!!! GrinGrinGrin
