AMRITSAR:
 Fireworks display and the newly-installed LED lighting marked the celebrations of "Bandi Chhor Diwas" and Diwali as thousands of devotees flocked to the Golden Temple complex here on Thursday.
The complex, where the holiest of Sikh shrines "Harmandir Sahib" is located, was illuminated with LED lights, giving it an all-new look.
The fireworks display duration has been shortened since last year owing to environmental concerns.
There was festive spirit at the shrine complex in this Sikh holy city as thousands of people came here to offer prayers and seek blessings.

The domes, buildings and floors of the shrine complex were cleaned and lighted up for the festive occasion. The day is celebrated in Sikh religion as "Bandi Chhor Diwas" (prisoner liberation day).
