The Golden Temple is situated in the city of Amritsar in the state of Punjab. It is a place of great beauty and excellent peace. Originally, a small lake in the middle of a tranquil forest, the deep antiquity, the site is returning a focus for monks and sages. This place makes us remember about Guru Nanak who was the founder of Sikhism. After Guru Nanak’s death, his disciples continued to carry the site continuously. For centuries, it became the primary holy place of the Sikhs.
Amritsar was the original name of the ancient lake. By taking inspiration from its name the temple complex, and even then the surrounding town were named Amritsar which means “pool of nectar.” We find that it points to a drink of the gods, is a rare and magical substance that catalyzes the consciousness and spiritual knowledge. The architecture of the temple is based on both the Hindu and Muslim artistic styles but still represents a unique synergy of the two. During the reign of Maharaja Ranjit Singh, the Hari Mandir had done a large scale with marble sculptures, golden goldstone, and precious stones in great quantity.
In this temple, Guru Granth Sahib is the holy scripture of the Sikhs. This holi book is a collection of devotional prayers, poems and poems written by all the ten Sikh Gurus and various Muslim and Hindu saints. Until the beginning of the morning and long lasting until sunset, these hymns are mentioned with the excellent support of flute, drum, and wiring instruments.
With this, we have a very clear example of a particular place’s spirit, power or enthusiasm, which is encoding in the form of an ancient geographical location. The myth is not just a fairy tale; it reveals itself as a coded metaphor if we have the knowledge to read the code. The water of Amritsar Lake, still there, brings peace to the soul.
