Contribution to Ahmad Shah Durrani article[edit]

Hello. I just wanted to point out that the Ahmad Shah Durrani (Abdali) article does not mention the brutalities of this man and what he did to the Sikhs and the Golden Temple. Could someone please contribute something to that article since he is being portrayed as a benevolent guy, which he really was not? --Pee3.14159 (talk) 02:21, 23 August 2013 (UTC)

History article[edit]

Wanted to point out that Harmandir Sahib was rebuilt twice, once due to Mugals who filled the temple with dirt and destroyed certain parts to beyond repair. The second time after Operation Blue Star (which has already been mentioned). — Preceding unsigned comment added by 101.165.41.172 (talk) 08:27, 1 December 2013 (UTC)

Opening paragraph about laying foundation[edit]

The opening paragraph's last sentence talking about a Muslim fakir (Sai Hazrat Mian Mir) laying the foundation should also clearly state that Sikhs are not Muslims, and it was an act of seeing everyone as an equal by Gurus. It should mention that the Sikh Guru had asked him to lay the foundation, it wasn't like the Muslim fakir was a leader of Sikhs.

Please let me know your views about this, and let's correct that sentence.

I have rephrased the paragraph to conform more accurately to the cited source and made a couple of corrections - 1) the date the cornerstone was laid - 2) the Sufi saint didn't compile the Adi Granth. Apuldram (talk) 23:54, 1 February 2015 (UTC)

Mention if it is real gold.[edit]

http://www.sikhnet.com/news/golden-temple-all-real-gold-asked-canadian-pm Mention if it is real gold. Mention how much all that gold might be worth. Mention if there are thus any security problems. Jidanni (talk) 17:44, 9 February 2016 (UTC)

The fact that it is real gold is covered in the section 'Architectural features'.The value to the Sikh community and to the world cannot be expressed in dollars or rupees. The location gives some protection. The details of protection measures should for obvious reasons not be published. Apuldram (talk) 19:37, 9 February 2016 (UTC)

I have true idea[edit]

I have true idea Pankal143 (talk) 20:31, 12 October 2016 (UTC)

Good for you. Are you going to tell us what your idea is? Apuldram (talk) 22:20, 12 October 2016 (UTC)

A doubt[edit]

I never heard the name Harmandir Saheb before, I referred to it as Golden Temple. Should this page be moved to Golden Temple as Harmandir Sahib is not a very widespread name ? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 31.215.112.58 (talk) 12:58, 30 January 2017 (UTC)

A decision was made to move to Golden Temple on 18 March 2007, see here, but never successfully implemented. (I think that the move process was probably not correctly followed and the system automatically returned to the older title)
This section (from above) may also apply. Apuldram (talk) 14:14, 30 January 2017 (UTC)
