The Golden Temple (aka Harmandir Sahib or Darbar Sahib) is situated in Amristar, India and attracts Sikhs from not only all over India but also the entire world. The Golden Temple is the holiest shrine of the Sikh religion, and during the daily meal time an estimated 80,000 people receive free food. The Golden Temple is open not only to the Sikhs but people of all other religions. On average, 350,000-400,000 people visit the Golden Temple every day. On occasions like Amavasya, Sakranth, Diwali, Vaisakhi, and Guruparv, the turnout increases considerably. According to temple officials, around 1 to 1.5 million people visit the temple on these days. The Sikh religion, which emerged in the Punjab region about 500 years ago, rejects the social hierarchies of caste, a precept of Hinduism. The four entrance doors (North, East, South, West) of the Golden Temple signifies Sikhism’s acceptance of people of all walks of life regardless of caste, race, or religion. The principle of equality is enshrined in the langar, where everyone eats together sitting on the floor, regardless of social status. The Golden Temple’s dome is said to be gilded with 750 kilograms of pure gold.

My love for this tweet is unreal.

Also, those punjabi girls (majority of them are girls but there are guys too) who pronounce their name the “white” way just so people won’t call them a fob or weird, YOU ARE STUPID.

I’m thankful that God hasn’t let me go, because I’ve let Him go, lots of times. He rescued me and continues to amaze me with things that are beyond what I deserve for myself.
