Old Harimandir Sahib
Harmandir Sahib is the heart of the Sikh nation. Like a lotus flower, it springs forth from the Amrit Sarovar, a palace of the Guru’s Divine words. Built by Guru Arjan Sahib, Harmandir Sahib was designed by the Guru to be the first Gurduara of the Sikh Panth. On September 1st of 1604, Harmandir Sahib was inaugurated with the first Prakash of the Adi Granth Sahib ji. It was the Palace of Hari, the word that connatates The Divine Life Giving Spirit. With the rise of a sovereign Sikh Empire, Sardar Ranjit Singh Sukkarchakia, decided to cover Harmandir Sahib in gold and marble. Ironically, this went against the spirit of Guru Arjan Sahib’s first vision, but it has now become its most famous attribute. This set is our attempt to remember its humble origins.
