    The Golden Temple of Amritsar: Reflections of the Past

    Date: 14 July 2011Time: 10:30 AM

    Finishes: 24 September 2011Time: 5:00 PM

    Venue: Brunei GalleryRoom: Brunei Gallery Exhibition Rooms

    Type of Event: Exhibition

    'The Golden Temple of Amritsar: Reflections of the Past' will be the first major exhibition on one of the world’s most beautiful and iconic buildings, one which is both the epicentre of the Sikh faith and a place of pilgrimage for followers of other traditions.

    Organised by a leading voluntary heritage organisation, the UK Punjab Heritage Association (ukpha), this groundbreaking show will trace the temple’s history, beginning with its origins as a place where the Buddha once meditated, to its role as the inspiration behind a guerrilla insurgency against foreign invasion that eventually led to the establishment of a Sikh empire in the 18th century.

    The exhibition will bring to life a bygone era when the Sikhs vied with the Mughals, Afghans and British for control of the land in and around present day Afghanistan, Pakistan and North-West India. On show will be a range of beautiful original photographs, paintings and engravings enhanced with extracts from over 70 eyewitness accounts from, among others, European spies, travellers, artists, memsahibs and raconteurs who visited the shrine in the 19th century.

    Five one-day symposiums will feature a range of international expert speakers who will explore themes of development and history, art and architecture, hospitality and classical learning, martial traditions and classical music.

    A lavish book accompanying the exhibition will feature approximately 500 of the earliest images of the Golden Temple

    thank you, thats my sunday sorted out!
Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
