Amritsar & its Golden Temple : A Photo documentary

Tripoto
21st Apr 2016

This summer we visited Amritsar. Here's a short summary of our visit. 

Its been a long wish to shoot a project in black and white. And here it is. Shot this entire trip in Black & White. I wanted to try something new this time (as always). I tried to document this town, temple & people. And i'm loving it.

For me, this is how one should travel in India. Hope you will like this effort. :)

It was summer time when we visited this place. We had been in the town for couple of days and spent most of the time in temple itself. It is so much peace to just sit and listen to the bhajans. Music never stops here. Many artists perform here and sing prayers. The food they serve in kitchen is delicious. Its an experience itself. Please visit the place if you haven't till now.
