Product Description

From its founding in 1588, the Golden Temple has come to symbolize the epitome of Sikh architecture and the undying love of its devotees. The complex that developed around it was the Sikhs' very own 'Vatican City'. In its heyday in the early 1800s, it was also highly regarded as a center of learning and a beacon for those searching for spiritual and educational enlightenment. Around it developed a bustling multicultural town that became a prominent stop on the Silk Route and a major commercial hub of northwestern India. This unique volume highlights the temple's unparalleled beauty and changing fortunes during a golden era of peace, prosperity, and patronage. Its vast collection of paintings, sketches, lithographs, and photographs has been painstakingly sourced from archives around the world. They are complemented by intriguing quotes from 70 eyewitness accounts, ranging from the earliest discovered in 1808 - a report by a one-legged British spy - right up to that of an awestruck Hollywood heartthrob, Lew Ayres, in search of the exotic and esoteric in 1959.
