Women seek calmness away from the main area of The Golden Temple in Amritsar, Punjab, India. It is the most important pilgrimage site in Sikhism, attracting over 100,000 people every day. The stained concrete wall and unfinished brick façade starkly contrasts with the white marble ground and the spectacular beauty of The Golden Temple that stands behind the camera.
