The Land of Five Rivers

After a long time, I had the opportunity to shoot almost a Gb load of pics at one shot. All this in four days. Honestly, I never thought, I would get a chance to visit the beautiful Golden Temple at Amritsar. At around 450 kms from Delhi, Amritsar is a 8 hr train ride. Apart from the temple, must-see include Jalianwala Bagha and the Wagah Border. I shall post pics of both these places in the next few days.
This temple went through a very forgettable past in the early 80s. I guess the people involved did pay a price for all they did. Apparently one of the minarets below were also damaged then. They were rebuilt again. More about the operation can be read here

Some pics of the temple after sunset.
To be contd....
