About the Print

The other structures captured in this captivating photograph are (left to right) the Akal Takht (Immortal Throne), Darshani Deorhi (Gate of Vision) and a partially constructed, gothic-style clock tower.

Regarded as 'incongruous' by visitors, the tower was raised on the site of several royal bungas (hospices) as a memorial of a visit to Amritsar by Viceroy Lord Elgin. Completed in 1874, it was eventually demolished in 1945.
