This is a picture I took 2 years ago at Anandpur Sahib in Punjab during celebrations of Holla Mohalla. A yearly event happening around Holi. The practice is was started by Guru Gobind Singh Ji to instill strong warrior qualities that enabled Khalsa to fearlessly fight even with outnumbered army.
During the festival of Holla Mohalla, Sikhs from around the world converge to the historical city of Anandpur Sahib in Punjab, India. It is a day full of color and extraordinary displays of martial arts. Men and Women donned in traditional clothing walk around the fields proudly with their heads held high. Thousands gather around to witness skilled horsemen from across the lands participate in various maneuvers displaying their amazing talents and skills.
