SikhNet offers homage to Amritsar on the occasion of the 420th Anniversary of this city. During the centuries, this complex of Sikh culture grew from a sacred village pond into a spiritual-temporal center. The passionate pilgrims of the faith of Guru Nanak (15th century), who united Hindu and Muslim elements and initiated a reformation, flocked here generation after generation. The craftsmen of the North were involved in heightening the insights of religion by creating works in and through the daily life, which may exalt the devotees. The shining splendor of the Golden Temple is witness to the high skill of the traditional craftsmen.
