Sikh Heritage: Ethos & Relics elucidates on the essence of Sikhism, and entwined with it the history and lore of the people of Punjab. Through photographs and descriptions of many hitherto unseen relics of Sikh heritage, bestowed by the Gurus upon the disciples, the authors place each artefact in its historical context, giving a broad perspective of Sikh heritage. A profusely illustrated volume that welcomes the reader with unsurpassed clarity and sensitivity to the world of Sikh heritage, the authors have used their thorough understanding of the Sikh ethos to familiarize and educate the readers about all that has been left behind by the Sikh Gurus.
