As a part of the centennial celebrations of the formation of the SGPC, a painting exhibition has started at the Golden Temple complex today.

As many as 31 paintings are being exhibited. Painters from all over Punjab participated in the workshop organised by the SGPC, and depicted the Sikh history on canvas.

Rajinder Singh Rubi, additional manager, Golden Temple, said, “The exhibition commenced today afternoon at the Gurdwara Manji Sahib Diwan Hall. The paintings depict important events such as the Khalsa Panth taking over the management of the Akal Takht from the mahants, the Nankana Sahib Massacre, Jaito Morcha and Kirpana Morcha.”

Portraits of prominent personalities, including Jathedars Teja Singh Samundari and Teja Singh Buchar, and SGPC presidents have also been displayed.

A brief description in Punjabi and English has been written to summarise the events. “The exhibition will continue during the ceremonies scheduled to be held as a part of the celebrations,” he said.
