Pictures from Punjab

I forgot to update my blog last night, like I usually do for the next day. So today I found some older pictures from when I was last in Punjab.

Who can tell me the name of this Gurdwara and it's significance? It's located in Amritsar near the Harimandir Sahib.

Yes, this is the gurdwara in memory of the Saragarhi Shahids. Though to be clear, Saragarhi is not in Amrtisar.

I don't know for sure, so I'll trust the answer given :-)
The funny part of this picture, like so many others from my trip to Punjab, the people who aren't facing away are staring at either me (taking the picture) or my brother (in the left of the picture).
I remember this instance pretty well, for some reason this particular time, although like every other day where I garnered hundreds of stares, I got annoyed and couldn't figure out why people just wanted to stare so much at me or my brother. After days and days, when you get tired of the stares, it can be hard sometimes.
I still miss Amritsar though. Some day I'm sure Guru Ji will bless me with another opportunity for the darshan of Siri Harimandir Sahib.

Guru Fateh, Khalsa Jee

Nice photos as usual. People stares at you because they rarely see a true sikh warrior/khalsa in punjab. Many times people will also stares at us and we do sometimes feel annoyed too:). but we will take it positive and feel proud coz people are seeking Guru Sikh darshan:):). (or vip passing by.lol) but again, is part of the culture too. Waheguru...Waheguru...

I agree with Singh above. You guys are beautiful sons of Guru Gobind Singh Ji. People stare at the sky because it is vast and beautiful. People stare and ocean because it is deep and magnificent. People stare at the mountains because they are majestic and scenic. People stare at the flowers because they are lively and inspiring. If they are staring for any other reason they are missing the point. A Gursikh has all of the above virtues and you see those when you look at the inside and outside of a Gursikh.
