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
