Sikh Virsa Pakistan
The first ever website showcasing the phenomenal Sikh-period antiquities in the Lahore Fort’s Sikh Gallery that includes the Princess Bamba Collection. Each object has many stories to tell and connects us to people who created these objects and handled them as users or owners at different moments in history. The collective accounts of this rich material culture offer unique insights into the lives of Punjab’s Sikh rulers of the nineteenth century through visual data; such insights are beyond the capacity of textual sources to capture.
