AMRITSAR  
The Citadel of Sikhism

This indeed brought in a tremendous change and prepared the community for ultimate victory through arms only. He is also responsible for ordaining Sikhs to have five things, the indispensable five Ks, the symbols of dikshadedication. According to it, every Singh must necessarily wear kacha-short drawers; put on kata-an iron ring on the right arm; keep kripan-Sword; kesh-keep long hair and a kangcomb. Verily, it imbued them with a spirit of oneness and unbreakable commonness. This instantly ushered in the growth of a homogenous and fully armored class, ready for defending their own ageless Marina.

His valorous life was emulated by both' Sikhs and Hindus with equal fervour, and with the support of his saint soldiers, he emancipated the people from the shackles of religious bigotry and political bondage. He waged relentless wars against the Moghuls and broke successfully the spell of their invincibility many a time, but was assassinated in 1708 by treacherous means. Even after that his followers continued their militancy with such matchless valour and peerless tenacity that only resulted in emerging-themselves as the fittest successors to that glorious saint soldier-ruler community. Furthermore, it is said that this place has been venerated from time immemorial for its association with epic personages - Sita the ideal consort of Sri Rama lived here during her banishment, and sage Valmiki, the Adi kavi who composed the Ramanyana. The thread of further narration by the guide of the Sikhs and the uniqueness of the Golden Temple was snapped by the Yatra Organizer, who hastened the party to the Jalianwala Bagh Monument for sight seeing.
