GOLDEN TRIANGLE - GOLDEN
TEMPLE * LITTLE LHASA * HIMALAYAS
Delhi : Amritsar : Dharamshala
AMRITSAR an institution
by itself, has the Golden Temple as the cradle of with the city
growing around it nurtured by its divine sanctity. The Golden Temple
stands there in simple majesty, the gilded splendor of its paneling,
dome and minarets shining in the morning light, silhouetted softly
in the water and etched gently across the city escape. For the Sikh
community the Harmandir Sahib Gurdwara 'Golden Temple' is the final
spiritual "vision," journey's end or beginning and, for every other
community too, it is a shrine to be visited. The four entrance doors
in four directions-symbolic of the new faith that made no
distinction between caste and creed. People could enter and bow in
any direction they preferred.
DHARAMSHALA - land of lamas is better known as Dalai
Lama's abode and Tibet's Government-in-exile. Set against the
magnificent backdrop of the towering Dhauladhar ranges, which rise
up to more than 4000 M, lies perched up on the high slopes in the
upper reaches of the Kangra valley. Founded in 1855, it is one of
the 80 hill resorts developed in the 17th century by the British to
beat the heat and dust of the sweltering plains. The colonial
origin, the Tibetan influence and the Kangra air make an
invigorating cocktail with a unique blend. The green fringes merge
with the snow-clad mountains and down below, the vast panorama of
the Kangra valley embraces you.
