Where in the World (373)

Answer to Where in the World (372)

As mentioned in the post last week the distorted image featured a site that is important to one of the world’s major religions. The photograph depicts a Sikh temple. Known as the Harmandir Sahib it is more commonly known, in English, as the Golden Temple because it is plated with Gold. It can be found in the Punjabi city of Amritsar, India

The Golden Temple, Amritsar

Congratulations this week to Jackie (@jackiesjourneys), Tim (@timofnewbury), Dave (@travelling_dave), Atul (@pixodentist) and Beverley (@bevsackville) who all identified the temple as the Golden Temple and the city as Amritsar.

This week's distorted city

This week the featured structure in the distorted image will not have been visited by most of my readers. This might make it more challenging to identify. However, it is one of the iconic structures of the city and will have featured in various media outlets.
