Evening at the Golden Temple in Amritsar

At this time of the year the sun is strong and it is way to hot for me to really enjoy the action at the Golden Temple in Amritsar. Also everything does look much better when it is dark and the light illuminate the Harmandir Sahib Temple and the complex surrounding the pond.

The sun is about to set over the Harmandir Sahib and the surrounding complex. There are two huge screens inside the square. They do translate all the religious songs that play in the temple into English so one can understand if he does not speak the local tongue.

They are always on patrol to tell the visitors if they do something wrong.

Best view and best time to sit here. The hot sun is gone and everything looks more majestic.

I like to travel and i like to snap pictures! My mother got me a Eurorail ticket when i was 15 and together with 2 friends we adventured into France. This was the beginning of a new addiction. I do like to take pictures so one thing leads to another and on this site i want to share some of my pictures and some of my trips with you! Now i am on the road for more than 6 months every year. Visiting old friends and making new friends while exploring this big blue ball.
