In the Master's Presence

In the Master's Presence: The Sikhs of Hazoor Sahib (Vol. 1: History) - Singh, Parmjit; Singh Nihang, Nidar At the heart of Sikh history lies Hazoor Sahib, a sacred site in the Deccan region of Central India, where the legacy of the tenth Sikh Guru, who valiantly opposed the oppressive rule of the Mughal Empire, finds its final resting place. Despite its geographical distance from the traditional Sikh heartlands of Punjab, Hazoor Sahib stands as a beacon of unwavering Sikh pride and resilience. Here, amidst the echoes of ancient practices and customs, preserved with steadfast dedication, a unique narrative unfolds, illuminating a chapter of Sikh history often overlooked. For the first time, this captivating saga is brought to light, drawing upon rare written sources, archival imagery, and the invaluable insights of an oral tradition passed down through generations. It is a tale of defiance, of cultural preservation, and above all, of the enduring spirit of Sikh identity.
