The Toshekhana Amritsar


Recommended Posts

Gurfateh !

Here is a clip from the Punjabi film 'Nanak Naam Jahaaz hai' - It shows the toshekhana in Darbar Sahib Amritsar - it includes the Jarau Chattar and sehra donated by Maharaja Ranjit Singh

Also it shows the canopy given to Ranjit Singh by the Nizam of Hyderabad which he gave to Amritsar - he received a punishment for donating something that he had used himself (the punishment was he gave Amritsar the Jagir and revenue of 2 villages one in Kangra one in Gurdaspur) This canopy was destroyed in the 1984 army attack.

You can also see the Chaur made of strands of Sandalwood made and gifted by haji Mohd Maskeen in 1925

Apologies for the quality !


Ranjit Singh 'Freed'
