AMRITSAR  
The Citadel of Sikhism

THE ORIGIN OF AMRISTAR

The origin of the Golden Temple dates back to the days of Nanak, a pious Hindu, who became the Founder Guru of Sikhism. Punjab, during his times was passing through a turbulent phase in the history of India. - Religious unrest due to the direct impact of Muslim rule reached the climax and there was insecurity to Hindus everywhere. Muslim bigotry was .systematically divesting Hinduism of its glory-chastity was outraged, and integrity fried in the open streets. When conditions went beyond endurance, the humanist. Nanak toured several places in and out of his state with a view to solving. Returning enlightened, he inferred, rightly too, that religious revival alone ensures safety and saves Hinduism from effacement and extinction. As a first step towards this, he tried to harmonize the religious sects by evolving a new devotional system, proclaiming that his sishyas. - singhs are the children of. God and they are not ascetics, but a band of servants with arms, rallying under one banner for the defense of their Dharma. And this became the nucleus of, his magnum opus - Adi Granth. History justified his laudable ambition and adored it.
