The Golden Temple Mosaic Art

The Harmandir Sahib (Punjabi: ਹਰਿਮੰਦਰ ਸਾਹਿਬ), also Darbar Sahib (Punjabi: ਦਰਬਾਰ ਸਾਹਿਬ, Punjabi pronunciation: [dəɾbɑɾ sɑhɪb] and informally referred to as the "Golden Temple", is a prominent Sikh Gurdwara located in the city of Amritsar, Punjab, India. It was built by the fifth Sikh guru, Guru Arjun, in the 16th Century. In 1604, Guru Arjun completed the Adi Granth, the holy scripture of Sikhism, and installed it in the Gurudwara. There are four doors to get into the Harmandir Sahib, which symbolize the openness of the Sikhs towards all people and religions.

Harjeet Sandhu started working on this project in the beginning of 2012, and it took him 11 months to complete the project. The size of the finished project was 36 inches by 48 inches. The finished art work is now in a museum in North India. He was honored at the Punjab Lalit Kala Academy for his body of work, that included this particular art work and many of his others, that captured the imagination of the people.
