Puffin India announces the launch of Amma, Take Me to the Golden Temple, the first book in the Amma, Take Me series by Bhakti Mathur. Gorgeously illustrated, the Amma, Take Me series is an attempt to introduce children to the many Indian religions and faiths through their important places of worship. The books, styled as the travelogues of a mother and her two young boys, Shiv and Veer, link history, tradition and mythology to bring alive the major temples, churches, mosques and mausoleums of India in an engaging and interactive way.

Amma, Take Me to the Golden Temple is a beautifully written account of the Golden Temple in Amritsar. Told through interesting stories and filled with insightful details, facts and trivia, the book is a must-have for all the parents and teachers who want to introduce their children to the country’s many religions in an informative and non-preachy manner.

Talking about the book, Bhakti Mathur said, ‘The Golden Temple has enriched me beyond measure. I was mesmerised by the beauty of its magnificent setting. Engaged by the richness of its history intertwined with that of Sikhism itself, I felt spiritually energised as I delved deeper into the teachings of Sikh Gurus. I hope that this journey of Amma and her boys will inspire readers on their own journey and I hope that they will enjoy reading this book as much as I enjoyed writing it.’
