New Exhibition Website

(courtesy of
UKPHA has produced a new on-line resource called "Empire, Faith and Kinship : Exploring 150 years of the Anglo Sikh Relationship" . This is an online exhibition with images and text that explores a fascinating relationship that has touched and shaped the lives of millions.

Through illustrations and detailed captions, the key events and people concerned are presented in eight sections, from the rise of the Sikh kingdom of Lahore in 1801 to the settling of the Sikh Diaspora in Britain in the twentieth century. Sometimes as friends, other times as foes, the Sikhs and the British have had one of the most rich and intriguing of partnerships.
