This is a view of the partial solar eclipse seen through the domes of the Golden Temple, Amritsar, India, on 22 July 2009. Some parts of India witnessed one of the most spectacular celestial phenomena of total solar eclipse of the 21st century. Amritsar, however was off the path of the totality of the total solar eclipse, that started being visible in Western India. In India, the eclipse was visible at its best in Varanasi, Uttarpradesh, India, as most other places on the path had cloudy weather obscuring the sight.
