Beato took many photographs of the Golden Temple from many viewpoints. This one shows the doorway leading to the interior. The incription on the doorway reads: 'The great Guru in His wisdom looked upon Maharaja Ranjit Singh as his chief servitor and Sikh, and his benevolence, bestowed on him the privilege of serving the temple'.
