    Handwritten Bir of Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji which I had the privilege to photograph at Gurdwara Mattan Sahib in Kashmir. This Bir does not come out often (for obvious reasons) so I feel very fortunate to have had this chance!

    I tried to get macro shot of the ink used to show the detail. This bir is known as the Sunehri (Golden) Bir because the first two pages have every second line done in real gold ink! (Also in the photos!) Last pic shows history of this Bir in a book...
