SIKH INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL 2012: DOCUMENTARIES
Revealed: The Golden Temple
Directed by: Rajendra Srivathsa Kondapalli; Produced by Rajendra Srivathsa Kondapalli and Sanjay Tripathy
Since it was first built in the early 17th century, the Sri Harmandar Sahib in Amritsar, Punjab, has stood as an enduring locus for Sikh faithful around the globe. Countless visitors have stepped through its open doors, circumambulated its divine periphery and bowed in submission to the highest spiritual authority in the Sikh religion: Waheguru. The Golden Temple, as the Sri Harmandar Sahib is popularly known, moors the Sikh spirit to its roots and is the most powerful repository of the religion's spiritual, political, and cultural heritage. It is also an organizational marvel, with cogs-within-cogs functioning tirelessly behind the scenes to allow visitors the ultimate pilgrim's experience.
