    This book seeks out fascinating and important aspects of Sikh art and heritage that have not often been studied before. Beginning with an essay that explains theologicaI developments within Sikhism, the book moves on to study the building projects commissioned by the saintly Guru Arjan and his warrior son Guru Hargobind. Another important paper studies a range of manuscripts of the Adi Granth; two essays deal with the courtly arts, the focus being painting at Patiala. Finally, the book looks towards the present and the future with essays on images of and by Sikhs in photography, early-modern art, and the Khalsa Heritage Complex at Anandpur Sahib.

    Kavita Singh is Associate Professor at the School of Arts and Aesthetics, Jawaharlal Nehru University, Delhi. Apart from Sikh art, her research interests include the history of museums in India, and Indian painting.
