Bhagat’s spiritual painting depicts the radiant Golden Temple in Amritsar, Punjab, under the bright full moon and cool night sky. Amongst the hustle and bustle of the impatient crowd, there is one sikh who sits apart, in eternal patience. The people are giving importance to getting into the temple, whereas this man gives importance to what the temple stands for.

Artist's Notes

“The body is Hari Mandir, the temple of Hari. He created it and dwells within it. Through the Guru’s words, those who connect to Hari within, are merged into him.”

– Guru Amardas Ji (Guru Granth Sahib, 1059)

Golden Temple in Moonlight Harmandir Sahib Harimandir Nishan Sahib by Bhagat Singh

Golden Temple

Bhagat’s spiritual painting depicts the radiant Golden Temple under the bright full moon and cool night sky. Amongst the hustle and bustle of the impatient crowd, there is one sikh who sits apart, in eternal patience. The people are giving importance to getting into the temple, whereas this man gives importance to what the temple stands for.

In front of the Harmandir Sahib, the man sits in deep meditation absorbing the scene and becoming one with it. He watches Hari’s hukam in action, and intuitively enters a peaceful state. He remains near the edge of the hukam as he sits at the edge of the pool and the steps.


History of the Golden Temple

Golden Temple in Moonlight Harmandir Sahib Harimandir Baba Atal Rai Attal Boonga Gurudwara Moon by Bhagat Singh

Baba Attal Rai Gurdwara

Harimandir Sahib was built in 1604 by Guru Arjun Dev ji. Trageically this version of the building was destroyed by Afghani invaders. The Guru’s temple probably resembled other North Indian temples of the time that did not involve elements of Mughal Architecture. (Mughal architecture was not a trend at this time.)

In 1700s, Baba Deep Singh ji amassed an army to to defend the Golden Temple from the incoming horde. However, him and his men were martyred by the huge force that seeked to destroy the temple. Even though Baba ji tried his best, the creation of the Guru could not be preserved.

Singh Meditating

After being demolished by Afghans, it was built again by Jassa Singh Ahluwalia in 1764, one hundred years later. This style of the Golden Temple and other famous Indian temples, of this time, were influenced by Mughal architecture. This closely resembles the present-day Golden Temple gurudwara, and became the blueprint for other gurudwaras.

Then in the 1800s, Maharaja Ranjit Singh beautified the temple with gold and marble, etched with beautiful patterns. He made it into a work of art that we see today.

In the 1900s-2000s, the temple was seeing many tourists and pilgrims from all over the world. So the parikarma path was modified and parts of it were destroyed. By demolishing certain walls, the platforms that would otherwise lead into the temple were made into a continuous path around the entire complex.

    SatShriAkal Bhagat. I love it. I never got any Harminder Sahib painting or picture til this date. I was waiting for the right one and I got it. Thank you. I can relate to this as I can feel it more than I can see it. When I visit Harminder Sahib that’s what I do. I sit on the side close to stairs and I listen to Gurbani and that’s how exactly I feel.
    Now I have to get the right frame for it.
    I love your creations and your vision.
    This talent makes you special and it’s a blessing. Regards Sukh

    This piece is magnificent Bhaji. The sardar sitting there doing simran portrays the peace and tranquility at harimandir sahib. People waiting in line to matha tek, the moonlight, the clouds everything comes together so well. The moonlight was an excellent choice Bhaji. You are truly amazing. Keep on doing what you’re doing – and keep me posted on what you’re doing!!!!!! Lol

    The day you posted the teaser shot I knew I would be getting this piece. I was super stoked about the and I showed my brother and he was like how do u know it’s gonna be so good by seeing such a small section. So he was just like yea whatever we’ll see when it’s completed. The other day I sent him the completed one and his answer was
    “ORDER IT, order the biggest one he has”

    My goodness Bhaji… Thoadi jini tareef Mein karaÅ„… Bohut thordi hove gi
