Golden Temple by Night

It wouldn't really have occurred to me to head to the Golden Temple after dark, but my host mom in Delhi made me promise to go to the Sikh's holiest site at night before she would let me get onto my Amritsar-bound train.

When I stepped over the threshold and the Golden mass came into view, I realized hundreds of people were sleeping on the ground around the entire pool.
