Sri Harmandir Saheb Panorama
Sri Harmandir Sahib, also known as Sri Darbar Sahib or Golden Temple, (on account of its scenic beauty and golden coating for English speaking world), is named right after Hari(God) the temple of God. The Sikhs all over the world, day-to-day want to spend pay a visit to to Sri Amritsar and to pay obeisance at Sri Harmandir Sahib in their Ardas.

Guru Arjan Sahib, the Fifth Nanak, conceived the idea of creating a central place of worship for the Sikhs and he himself created the architecture of Sri Harmandir Sahib. Earlier the planning to excavate the holy tank (Amritsar or Amrit Sarovar ) was chalked out by Guru Amardas Sahib, the Third Nanak, but it was executed by Guru Ramdas Sahib below the supervision of Baba Budha ji. The land for the web site was acquired by the earlier Guru Sahibs on payment or cost-free of price from the Zamindars (landlords) of native villages. The strategy to establish a town settlement was also created. As a result, the building function on the Sarovar(the tank) and the town started simultaneously in 1570. The perform on both projects completed in 1577 A.D.

Guru Arjan Sahib got its foundation laid by a muslim saint Hazrat Mian Mir ji of Lahore on 1st of Magh, 1645 Bikrmi Samvat(December,1588). The building operate was straight supervised by Guru Arjan Sahib himself and he was assisted by the prominent Sikh personalities like Baba Budha ji, Bhai Gurdas ji, Bhai Sahlo ji and numerous other devoted Sikhs.

As opposed to erecting the structure on the larger level(a tradition in Hindu Temple architecture), Guru Arjan Sahib got it built on the reduce level and in contrast to Hindu Temples possessing only a single gate for the entrance and exit, Guru Sahib got it open from four sides. Hence he produced a symbol of new faith, Sikhism. Guru Sahib made it accessible to each and every particular person with no any distinction of Caste, creed, sex and religion.

The developing operate completed in 1601 A.D. on Bhadoon Sudi 1st, 1661 Bikrmi Samvat (August/September,1604). Guru Arjan Sahib installed newly designed Guru Granth Sahib, in Sri Harmandir Sahib and appointed Baba Budha ji as its first Granthi i.e. the reader of Guru Granth Sahib. Soon after this event it attained the status of ‘Ath Sath Tirath’. Now the Sikh Nation had their own Tirath, a pilgrimage center

The Darshani Deori (an arch) stands at the shore finish of the causeway. The door frame of the arch is about 10ft in height and 8ft 6inches in breath. The door panes are decorated with artistic style. It opens on to the causeway or bridge that leads to the principal creating of Sri Harmandir Sahib. It is 202 feet in length and 21 feet in width.

  9. we are happy to know that Sikhism gurus were belongs to hindu religion…
    5 gurus from 5 parts of india…
    respect for 5 Sikhs gurus…

  10. Sikh history is one history that just makes everyone laugh, its full of harry potter fantasy and fabrication. They dream about fighting Muslims and funnily Most Muslims don’t even know them, only Pakistan because we once shared the country.

  11. History, legacy, culture, language, people, Family bindings, festivals, food habits of Hindus n Sikhs are intimately linked. Both have sacrificed for each other at times. Let them love each other n not divided. If anyone has any friction in mind I urge them to forget it n move on. God bless all.

  12. Sikh mane chahe ya na mane wo khi na khi hinduo se related hai kyuki apne aap to koi nya dharm bnta nhi jldi aur wo v to kisi dhrm se hi nikla hoga agr nhi mante to bhad me jao salo hume koi frk nhi pdega

  13. Satpal Singh Dhillon interesting how a man can manipulate the mindset of people to change their ancestral religion.if he was born In today’s media centric world he might hv been in place of ram rahim. What they got by forming a new subsidary religion. its just the different interpretations, even this religion has discrimination within. Coz it involves humans, there nothing sacred . Fuck religions believe in helping others

  14. A nice documentary.
    If Indians were taught the basics about the six systems of Indian philosophy in the schools, they would stop quibbling about religion. Since Punjab is the corridor through which Islamic invaders came to impose their cruel reigns, obviously the indigenous people had to fight back for their rights, their ancient religion and culture. Thus arose Sikhism out of a lot of bloody confrontation between Islamic and Hindu people. The Sikh Gurus were social reformers during the Islamic rule. The ancestors of Sikhs are Hindus. So when Sikhs critise Hinduism, they are criticising their ancestors’ faith.

  15. Sikh are the most foolish nation in the earth ,they spend theirs life fighting from the beginning ,first they were fighting to save Briton ,then they fight against them ,after that fight with Muslims to save Hindus ,then Hindu killed them 1984 ,now hindus hooked to the young Sikh generation with drugs ,and let them fight each other ,clever Hindus ,,,,
