Gurmat Prayrna. Such a beautiful poem… love it!
The Golden Temple (aka Harmandir Sahib or Darbar Sahib) is situated in Amristar, India and attracts Sikhs from not only all over India but also the entire world. The Golden Temple is the holiest shrine of the Sikh religion, and during the daily meal time an estimated 80,000 people receive free food. The Golden Temple is open not only to the Sikhs but people of all other religions. On average, 350,000-400,000 people visit the Golden Temple every day. On occasions like Amavasya, Sakranth, Diwali, Vaisakhi, and Guruparv, the turnout increases considerably. According to temple officials, around 1 to 1.5 million people visit the temple on these days. The Sikh religion, which emerged in the Punjab region about 500 years ago, rejects the social hierarchies of caste, a precept of Hinduism. The four entrance doors (North, East, South, West) of the Golden Temple signifies Sikhism’s acceptance of people of all walks of life regardless of caste, race, or religion. The principle of equality is enshrined in the langar, where everyone eats together sitting on the floor, regardless of social status. The Golden Temple’s dome is said to be gilded with 750 kilograms of pure gold.
(Gur)Sikh Wedding of Poonam & Rajkamal
This wedding was definitely not showy, but it was very interesting wedding to watch from the rest. The bride and groom keep it simple in their attire. The bride is simple but looks absolutely beautiful. A classy wedding with the pure rituals of a Sikh wedding. Another amazing capture by Rosette Films.
