Virasat E Khalsa Museum

  1. 1. Virasat - e - Khalsa was conceived as a repository of the rich heritage of the Khalsa community and the history and culture of the Punjab, while also inspiring visitors with a renewed relevance of the message of the great Gurus for the world today. Towards the end of the fifteenth century, in the Punjab region of Northern India, Guru Nanak Dev founded a faith rooted in the core values of universalism, liberalism, and humanism. The nine Gurus who followed Him built upon and consolidated His teachings, thereby establishing Sikhism not only as a belief system but also as a way of life. Two hundred years later, in 1699, on the occasion of Baisakhi, the Tenth Guru Gobind Singh formally instituted the Khalsa Panth at Anandpur Sahib, establishing a social order committed to peace, equality and justice for all. Today, on the same site, stands the majestic Gurdwara Takht Sri Keshgarh Sahib. The year 1999 marked the Tercentenary of the Birth of the Khalsa. To commemorate this event, the Government of Punjab envisioned the Virasat - e - Khalsa at Anandpur Sahib.
  2. 2. The Museum Complex is inspired by the rich natural and built heritage of Anandpur Sahib, while also drawing heavily from Sikh and regional architecture. Counter to the tradition of domes which crown sacred Sikh sites, the roofs of the Museum are concave- shaped receptors facing the sky. Sheathed in stainless steel, they reflect the sun’s light towards the Gurdwara and the Fort.

  6. 6. A mystique from an early age, Guru Nanak proclaimed the doctrine: the love of the creator and of creation are the only religion. He travelled far and wide, delivering the message of God’s love, and of freedom from false worship and blind faith. GALLERY 4 GURU NANAK EARLY YEARS
  7. 7. GALLERY 5 Guru Nanak at Kartarpur Guru Nanak finally settled at Kartarpur, where a new brotherhood of devotees was formed. It is here that Nanak bestowed upon Bhai Lehna the Guruship, and gave him the name of Guru Angad.
  8. 8. GALLERY 6 Guru Angad and Guru Amardas GuruAngadestablishedthesecondSikhcentreatKhadurSahib, where he refined the Gurmukhi script and spread the Gurbani. The next Guru, Guru Amardas dedicated his services to uplift the status of women in society. He denounced superstition and the caste system.
  9. 9. The fourth Guru, Guru Ramdas ordained the site for the Amrit Sarovar, which also led to the rise of the city of Amritsar. Guru Ramdas established the tradition of singing the Gurbani in ragas and made it the central expression of devotion. GALLERY 7 GURU RAMDAS
  10. 10. GALLERY 8 & 9 Guru Arjan Dev GuruArjanDevbegantheconstructionofthe Darbar Sahib. He compiled compositions of all four previous Gurus and other Sufis and Hindu devotional poets into the Adi Granth, placed in the Darbar Sahib. The message of the Adi Granth, a state of harmony and righteousness, was termed as the ‘Halemi Raj’, the triumph of benevolence.
  11. 11. Guru Hargobind initiated the process of militarization of Sikh believers to enable to fight injustice and tyranny. The next two Gurus, Guru Har Rai and Har Krishan, dedicated their lives to introducing social reform and motivating humanitarian services. GALLERY 10 & 11 New Directions In Sikhism
  12. 12. Guru Tegh Bahadur offered the Supreme Sacrifice to protect the faith of the Kashmiri Pandits from the atrocities of the Mughals. His son, Guru Gobind Singh held high the mantle of the Guruship as a saint, a warrior and a poet. He bravely defeated the chiefs of the hill kingdoms in successive battles, and also fortified Anantpur Sahib to secure it from Mughal invasions.

  13. 13. In 1699, Guru Gobind Singh formed the Khalsa at Anandpur Sahib. Amidst the congregation of believers, he chose his Panj Pyaras, Five Beloveds. The Guru wanted all Sikhs to proclaim themselves as equals by universally embracing the Five Symbols of the faith – the kaccha (drawers), the kada (bracelet), the kirpan (dagger), the kesh (hair) and the kanga (comb).
