A Sikh guard at the Golden Temple, Amritsar, Punjab, India
Sikhism espouses the teachings of Guru Nanek and his nine successors, acknowledges one creator, celebrates unity, equality and inclusiveness of all humankind (no caste system), plus encourages selfless volunteerism and giving. The Sikh diaspora is 25M worldwide (the 9th largest organized religion), although the majority reside in the northern state of Punjab. Sikh men, such as this guard, are distinguished by their turbans and their prominent beards. Guards carry gold spears.
I wanted to capture more pics of the night sky against the brilliant gold canvas of the temple, but it rained for most of the evening. For more about the temple, I wrote a little text next to each of my pics thereof.
