Photographer's Note

An elderly pilgrim taking a dip in the Amrit Sarovar (‘pool of Nectar’) at the Golden Temple of Amritsar, the holiest place in the Sikh religion. The original holy book of the Sikh religion is kept in the temple itself (Hari Mandir Sahib) which stands at the centre of the pool, connected via the Guru’s bridge. 750 kg of gold are said to have been used to create the temple’s dome. What no picture captures is the serenity of this place, or the spiritual ambience created by the constant chanting in Punjabi, which makes this place one of the hidden treasures of India.
