On a train through India (well, Amritsar!)

... downstairs in the hotel before we went to collect any things we wanted for the morning before leaving reception and jumping into a different car that took us into the centre of Amritsar to the outskirts of the Golden Temple complex. It was extremely busy here as there were loads of people heading to the temple. We followed Pranay, dodging in between all the crowds until we made it to the entrance of the temple. We had to leave our shoes and flip flops at the entrance and ...

... was warm and silky smooth, live tabla music and recitations from the book were playing over hidden speakers, and the white and gold light danced on the water's surface.

All together a very joyous yet bizarre ...

... the last action after the flags were lowered was a good firm hand shake, the gates then unceremoniously slammed shut. On to the Golden temple; by the time we were back in the car it was dark, and a long drive back to the centre of Amritsar pleasant and cool. The current temple was built in 1764 after being destroyed by the Mughal's in 1761. The roof was gilded with copper plates in 1802, and became known as the Golden Temple.
