Pilgrims walking near the Amrit Sarovar (water tank) in the famous Amritsar golden temple in Punjab.
The Ramgarhia Bunga – the two high towers, is named after a Sikh subgroup. The red sandstone minaret-style Bunga towers were built in the 18th-century, a period of Afghan attacks and temple demolitions. It is named after the Sikh warrior and Ramgarhia misl chief Jassa Singh Ramgarhia. It was constructed as the temple watchtowers for sentinels to watch for any military raid approaching the temple and the surrounding area, help rapidly gather a defense to protect the Golden temple complex. The Ramgarhia Bunga remains a symbol of the Ramgarhia Sikh community's identity, their historic sacrifices and contribution to defending the Golden temple over the centuries. Source : wiki
