AMRITSAR  
The Citadel of Sikhism

Your peering look at long last lights upon the Guru Granth Sahib - the principal, single sacred Sikh scripture placed on the dais in the middle of the chamber, deemed to be the Bible of the Sikh community, enshrining in its bosom the Invisible Lord in the form of letters, whose attributes and deeds it sings through hymns and psalms; yes, the very same repository of holy songs of Sikh Gurus, along with those of eminent Hindu and Muslim sages, seers, saints, prophets and hermits, composed in the spoken idiom of the people for whom it is intended by the compassionate Gurus, who willingly laid down their lives at the altar of service, inspired by the lofty ideals of devotion to God and dedication to the up-liftment of fellowmen through valour and sacrifice; verily the self same scripture embodying those adorable twin aspirations that propelled them into the founding of a religion, whose cosmopolitan character, catholicity of outlook, universality of disposition admits neither dogmatism, nor sectarianism, but breathes in humanism and breathes out fraternity. In ideal state only. "How divine is the book and what veneration is shown by its votaries!" escape from the lips of every visitor unconsciously then. There begins then the enquiry about building of this outstanding, incomparable temple, the crest jewel of Sikhism and of temples too.
