Amritsar - Golden Temple

About 5:00 this evening we went to the Sikh Gurudwara (temple) -- the main reason for visiting Amritsar. The temple is known as the "Golden Temple" because it is covered in gold leaf.
At the Golden a Temple. Everyone must have their head covered, be barefoot (no socks), and walk through foot baths before entering the grounds.
The temple itself sits in the middle of the temple tank.
A covered causeway runs to the temple.
I loved the way the grain of the stone made these birds look more life-like.
The temple serves up top 100,000 meals a day. Cooking is done in immense pots.
Masala chai is prepared all day long.
