AMRITSAR  
The Citadel of Sikhism

UNIQUENESS

Mention Amritsar, there goes up smoke and down falls a body; visualize its topography, pools blood and piles of the dead greet your eyes; nearer you go, surer is the sight of corpses rising from the debris gleam into your view; walk in the precincts, you feel scorching eyes running over your physical frame from behind the window shades; approach the portal, liveried men looking daggers scan you from head to foot; enter into it, security men stationed at every vantage point with hardly 100 feet between them scrutinize you with magnifying eyes, as it were,  proceed towards the bridge leading to the sanctum, scores of bearded, broad shouldered, hefty man-mountains with metal detectors subject you to gruesome investigation for fire arms. If you manage to pass through the mouth of hell enduring all the ordeals, you are admitted into the Gurudwara, where surprise of surprises awaits you, rather benumbs your senses, since you see neither a statue, nor a design ,.W any divinity, anywhere in the Garbhagriha called Darbar  Sahib, considered to be the
central citadel of Sikhism and source of perennial inspiration for millions of a militant community living all over the globe, but united to from into a single entity, with a mode of life characterized by martial spirit and a commendable code of conduct.
