Description

Admired for their courage and physical prowess, the Sikhs form a distinct and admired community in India. Sikhs are easily distinguished from other Indians by their turbans, which cover their long hair and beards, both of which they are forbidden to cut. Sikh gurus are both religious and military leaders and are commonly portrayed as princely soldiers, as in this equestrian portrait.
