Golden TempleThe Golden Temple
Mentally the temple is the most important sanctuary in Sikhism. Between 1883 and 1920 it became a centre of the Singh-Sabha-motion. During the early 1980s, the temple became a centre of conflicts between the Indira Gandhi-led Indira Gandhi and some Sikh groups and a militiac movements under the leadership of Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale, who wanted to build a new country called Khalistan.
Gandhi sent in the India army as part of Operation Blue Star in 1984, killing over 1,000 fighters, troops and cavalry, inflicting much harm on the temple and destroying Akal Takht. This temple building was reconstructed after the 1984 war. Guru Arjan started the building of Gurdwara in 1581.
A temple on a lower plane than the town, Guru Arjan designed to stress the humbleness and the need to wipe out his egos before he entered the site to hit the Guru. 1 ] He also called for the temple grounds to be open to all sides to emphasise that they are open to all.
There was only one overpass in the sanctuary in the swimming pools where his guru was based to emphasise that the ultimate objective was one, says Arvind-Pal Singh Mandair. 1] The brick temple was completed in 1589. Some of the later resources believe that Guru Arjan called the Sufi holy Mian Mir of Lahore to laid his cornerstone, which signals pluralism and that the Sikh traditions welcome everyone.
1 ] This faith, however, is unfounded According to Sikh tradition springs like Sri Gur Suraj Parkash Granth, it was placed by Guru Arjan himself. Guru Arjan finished the extension and compilation of the first Sikh script on August 16, 1604 and placed a copy of Adi Granth in the temple.

Then Khan became the policeman who squatted the temple and transformed it into his centre of amusement with dancin' sluts.

At 21 years of old Ranjit Singh established the core of the Sikh empire with the help of Sukerchakia Misl and his mother-in-law Rani Sada Kaur.
He took Amritsar from Bhangi Sikh in 1802, at the tender ages of 22, and worshipped the Golden Temple, announcing that he would restore it and reconstruct it with stone and amber. 38 ] The temple was restored in 1809 in brass and brass, and in 1830 Ranjit Singh gave golden to cover the shrine with golden film.

According to the Sikhs' traditions, the Sikhs assembled at the Golden Temple to commemorate the feast of Baisakhi in 1919.
They urged the UK authorities to give the administration and treasure of the Golden Temple to an organisation chosen by the name of Shiromani Gurudwara Prabandhak Committee (SGPC). SGPC still manages the Golden Temple. In the early 1980s, the Golden Temple and Akal Takht were invaded by various militants.
Among them were the Dharam Yudh Morcha under the leadership of Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale, the Babbar Khalsa, the AISSF and the National Council of Khalistan. In December 1983, Akali Dal's president Harcharan Singh Longowal Jarnail Singh had called Bhindranwale to settle in the Golden Temple Complex.
69 ] The group headed by Bhindranwale under the command of General Shabeg Singh had started to construct shelters and observation points in and around the Golden Temple. 70 ] They organized the combatants who were present in June 1984 in the Harmandir Sahib in Amritsar, the Golden Temple became a place of weapon education for the combatants.
68 ] Shabeg Singh's technical knowledge of the army is attributed to the establishment of an efficient defence of the temple complex, which made the option of a command mission on foot not possible. A few and a half hours after the Bluestar mission, some 2,000 Sikh troops in India were mutinying and trying to get to Amritsar to free the Golden Temple.
