Indian-American Governor of South Carolina Nikki Haley today paid obeisance at Golden Temple here saying that she was there not in the capacity of Governor of a state but as a humble human being.

Accompanied by her husband, Haley offered prayers at the Sikh shrine.

"The peace and serenity of the place is amazing," she said. Haley described her visit to Punjab as "really special and emotional".

"This is the place that has been so frequently talked about by my parents. So many stories, so many memories...and now actually to be in that place is very exciting. It's nice to come back to the place my parents belong to", said Haley. Sameer Sehgal/HT http://www.hindustantimes.com/Images/popup/2014/11/HaleyatJallianwala.jpg
