At this time of the year, the sun is strong, and it is way too 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 illuminates 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 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.
Blue hour! The Golden Temple and the main entrance to the complex.

Best view and best time to sit here. The hot sun is gone and everything looks more majestic.
If only the ugly water tower would not be here.
