Sikh Architecture – Golden temple Complex, Amritsar

Sikh Architecture is an amalgamation of religious architecture of the buildings of the faith and traditional Indo-Sarsenic style. It includes all the buildings serving the devotional, ritualistic and religious functions of the Sikh Community. We can spot any Sikh temple from distance by seeing a flag mast (Nishan Sahib) which is draped in yellow or blue with triangular flag with the Sikh insignia fluttering in the breeze. Its dome is different from domes of mosques or Hindu temples, so are its arches, balconies, columns, interiors and general layout.

Golden Temple is the biggest and the most sacred place considered in the Sikh religion. It presents a different prospect to the Sikh Architecture in many sense. Golden Temple as known as “Darbar Sahib” presents Sikh Architecture at its very best.

Here is a presentation (Golden Temple Complex.pptx) detailing out every aspect of Golden Temple Complex.
