Entry Description

In a country where science and superstition co-exist as part of the cultural landscape, a sight like this is not rare. At Amritsar, in the State of Punjab in India, everyday, when the sun comes up, people throng this holy tank at the Golden Temple to wash away their sins and pray to Guru Nanak (the sikh guru) for his blessings. In a moment of such tranquil contemplation, a Sikh devotee descends into the waters to pray to the Guru.
