So we visited Amritsar, the holy city of the SIkh people, and we simply fail in love with them!. Anywhere you go you see warm and peaceful people.
Who Are They
Sikhism is a monotheistic faith founded by Guru Nanak who was born in 1469 to a Hindu family. Sikhism, which began in India’s Punjab region in the 1400s, is the world’s fifth largest religion.
There is one common thing to all the Sikh Punjabi people we met – they all have this penetrating look. When you really look into their eyes you see pure kindness and grace.
The Most Adorable Police Officers in The World
Even the police officers were so polite and did their best to help us get to our destination. They told us that they all believe in defending civil liberties and protecting the defenseless, equal rights regardless of gender, race, caste, or religion
Sikhism teaches that men and women of every race and religion are equals. When we met them they said to us “Waheguru ji ka Khalsa, Waheguru ji ki Fateh” which means “The Khalsa belongs to God, Victory belongs to God”.
Turbans are worn to cover their long hair and with respect to God. Sikhs have unshorn hair, beards and moustaches. The Sikh faith teaches us the humanitarian principles of freedom, equality, and justice.
Seeker of Knowledge
Sikh, in Punjab, means disciple or learner, or seeker of knowledge. The almost 25 million Sikhs worldwide constitute the fifth largest religion in the world.
The city has tons of accommodation options. Check out our list of best hotels in Amritsar near the Golden Temple.
