Photographer's Note

This is not the Golden temple but the Durgiana temple, a premier temple also situated in the city of Amritsar. The original temple was built in 16th century. Though a Hindu temple, it was rebuilt in 1921 by guru Harsai Mal Kapoor in the similar architectural style of the Sikh Golden temple. The temple is built in the middle of a sacred lake. A bridge provides the approach to the temple. The dome of the temple is gilded. Marble is used extensively in the temple's features. The dome is illuminated with colourful lights. Source : wiki
