Khalsa Heritage Complex – Sikh Museum, Anandpur Sahib ( Virasat-e-Khalsa )

Its history pieced together through a series of paintings, depicting the lives of the Gurus, sikhs struggle, the heritage Guru Sahibs left behind and the pride of Sikh Community in the way of life laid down. The Virasat-e-Khalsa, lends an insight into the turbulent events that unfolded in the previous three centuries in Punjab that gave birth to Khalsa.

    very nice

  2. very nice and better place for knowing sikh’s history, sikh’s gurus and their dids…..very wonder ful place……….

  3. I visited this museum December 2011 and was a bit dissapointed that the exhibitions just spanned the Guru period and nothing more. So no Sikh Empire, no Separation, no 1984 etc. I had the impression that there was a lot of empty room still and that these displays were still to be made or set up.

  5. There
    is a concerted effort by many agencies to undermine the Sikh identity. Drugs
    and alcohol are flooded into the Punjab. Young Sikhs are manipulated into
    diluting their faith, but efforts are being made to counteract this. Many
    preachers are now going into the towns and villages are spreading the true
    message of the Gurus. In the west Sikhism is very strong amongst the young who
    now wear damallas and keep 5K’s as a matter of pride in their identity.

  6. Is the understanding correct that the Five K’s are a gift from the guru’s. IF so why is it that so many Sikh youth in India are visiting barber shops to “Fix” their hair. They are trimming and doing all sorts of things at the “Barber Shops” (I saw many in Delhi, some even say they specialize in Sikh Dari’s). Why is it that the Sikh’s are diluting their own identity and indeed allowing these barber shops to specialize in Sikh Hair/dari cutting. Paradoxical, don’t you think.
