Golden Temple at Amritsar.

Watercolour by a Company artist, Punjab, 1865 (c).

The Golden Temple (or Harmandir Sahib) at Amritsar is the most important place of worship for Sikhs. It was built during the sixteenth century and lavishly decorated during the reign of Maharaja Ranjit Singh (1780-1839) with marble and gold, from which it derives its popular name of the 'Golden Temple'.

From the first of two volumes of watercolours entitled, ‘The Kingdom of the Punjab, its Rulers and Chiefs'.
