[Original caption] Amritsar is an important commercial city, capital of the province of the same name in the Punjab. It was founded in 1574 by Guru Ram Das, who excavated a sacred tank, which gives the city its name "Pool of Immortality". In the midst of this lake is the famous golden temple of "Durbar Sahib," the chief temple of the Sikhs, where are stored Sikh Gurus or prophets. [end]
