Jamie Cooper revealed that he spent 700 hours making the painting and that it was a privately commissioned artwork for a family that has trust in the Sikh faith.

While sharing the pictures of paintings of Sri Darbar Sahib, Amritsar, Jamie Cooper wrote: "This has been one of the most rewarding paintings I have produced in 25 years of commissioned work. A magical scene at the Golden Temple featuring significant figures in Sikh history from throughout the last century."

He further wrote: "As I painted this it dawned on me that the place was as important as the people in it. So I devoted as much time, if not more to the beautifully intricate architecture as it contained the energy of every person who has entered it with reverence and love."
