As we entered the temple, I saw from the gate the two on the right were chit chatting, and as we approached to the near the main inner entrance where they were sitting, they started a kind of prayer/praises for god which at them seemed to be one for once, even as one was a Muslim and other a Sikh.
Gurdwara Chatti Patshahi, Kathi Darwaja, Rainwari, Srinagar
The sixth guru of Sikhism travelled through Kashmir, stopping to preach occasionally and stayed for few days. Gurdwara Chhevin Patshahi - Srinagar, on the bank of Jhelum River and Dal Lake, is located at the site which was visited by Guru Nanak Dev and Guru Hargobind as well. Some sources also list a visit by Guru Har Rai, but the historical Sikh shrine here is named after Guru Hargobind alone the Chhevin Patshahi or Sixth Master, it is located outside Kathi Gate of Hari Parbat Fort at the site of the house of Mai Bhagbhari, who had long been yearning for a glimpse of the Guru when Guru Hargobind fulfilled her wish by his visit and wearing of her now famous gown.

Namaskar dear Jugnu
Well I think that's just lovely a Muslim and a Sikh praying together. I wish there was more of it in the world. What a wonderful colourful discovery you've made and shot very well. You've managed the light expertly and the definition is admirable. Thanks for sharing.
I wish you a beautiful day
