A glimpse of this sacred place for the Sikh religion. At the entrance a man bows in front of the sacredness of the Golden Temple, a sign of faith and respect. Place visited by thousands of tourists, Indians and foreigners, every day of the year. As sign of respect every person who comes here, believer or not, man or woman, young or old, must cover the head with a turban or a bandana.
This is the famous Golden Temple, a temple completely in dedicated to the Sikh religion. In the Sikh religion there are 10 Gurus (Masters) and this is 'the most' important place where the first Guru was living. The structure itself, is awesome, maybe not like the Taj Mahal, but for what gives to the community should replace it as a "Wonder of the World".
This time we are outside of a beautiful Hindu temple not far from Mysore. Place much frequented by tourists Indians.. and not. This ancient site is all built with rocks, carved with an impressive skill.
Nowadays the most of Japanese people are not very religious and they go to the temple for praying very few times during the year.. perhaps just once at the last day of the year. The most common religions are the Shinto and the Buddhism that are actually quite similar.
When you roam around the numerous ruins of Hampi, sometimes is better take a rest from the blazing sun... otherwise you will end up literally cooked.
