The Golden Temple Past & Present

Description This well-documented and scholarly work on the history, art and architecture, management and schedule of worship of the famous Sikh shrine fulfills a long-felt need of a comprehensive good handbook both for devotees, tourists and scholars of Sikh history. The information contained in the volume is based on a critical study of Sikh chronicles, the "Sakhi" & "Mahima" traditions, text of Guru Granth Sahib, Hukamnamas, Bhat vahis, Bhai Gurdas vars, and SGPC reports and some ancient Persian sources. Its authenticity and reliability can been gauged from the inclusion of its original revenue records, inscription in documents the appendices. A detailed bibliography widens the scope of information given in this volume. The expression and command over the language of the author is remarkable without being eulogistic.[edit]
