Default Golden Temple

Golden Temple
Located on top of Mingfeng (Singing Phoenix) Hill is the home of the Taoist Taihe Palace (Hall of Supreme Harmony), which is the largest copper temple in China. It is also known as the Tongwa Temple (Bronze Tile Temple) and by its popular name, the Golden Temple.

The history of the Golden Temple starts during the Ming Dynasty and the reign of the Emperor Wanli in 1602. At that time the governor of Yunnan Province was a devout Taoist who built this temple to honor the Taoist hero-god Zishi. According to legend, Zishi had a golden palace in the northernmost extremity of the universe. But the Golden Temple didn't stay in its original place for very long. Just 35 years later, in 1637, the entire original temple was moved to Jizu (Chicken Foot) Mountain in western Yunnan. Three decades later in 1671 during the Qing Dynasty, Wu Sangui, the governor of Yunnan Province, built an exact duplicate of the original temple. This temple was undisturbed for almost two hundred years until the Muslim rebellion of 1857, during which the Golden Temple suffered some damages. Emperor Guangxu ordered its complete repair and in 1890, using 250 tons (246 gross ton) of solid bronze, the entire temple was again rebuilt. Except for the staircases and balustrades, which are made of marble, the walls, columns, rafters, roof tiles, altars, Buddha statues, wall decorations and the banner near the gate tower are all made of copper. The burnished copper gleamed like gold and that is why people named it the Golden Temple. Since its last renovation, this beloved copper temple on the top of Mingfeng Hill has been well cared and has become the most famous Taoist shrine in Yunnan Province.

The "Golden Temple" is the holiest Gurdwara of Sikhism, situated in the city of Amritsar, Punjab, India. Amritsar (truly, the tank of nectar of interminability) was established in 1577 by the fourth Sikh master, Guru Ram Das.The fifth Sikh Guru, Guru Arjan, planned the Harmandir Sahib to be implicit the focal point of this blessed tank, and upon its development, introduced the Adi Granth, the sacred writing of Sikhism, inside the Harmandir Sahib.The Harmandir Sahib complex is likewise home to the Akal Takht (the position of royalty of the immortal one, constituted by the Sixth Guru, Guru Hargobind). While the Harmandir Sahib is viewed as the home God's profound characteristic, the Akal Takht is the seat of God's transient power.
