      LOST HERITAGE: The Sikh Legacy in Pakistan
      A Glimpse of Guru Nanak's Travels

      Following the end of the British rule of India in 1947, the Sikh community was caught up in a conflict of a "two nation" split of the sub-continent. It forced them to abandon their tangible and intangible legacy.

      Amardeep Singh embarked on a month-long journey into 36 cities and villages in Pakistan in 2014. The discoveries made on this journey inspired him to continue to explore his forebears' history. He undertook a second trip to 90 cities and villages in 2017. He has authored two books on the Sikh legacy in Pakistan.

      Amardeep now, after many prior visits, is making a documentary, "ALLEGORY - A Tapestry of Guru Nanak's Travels," which will chronicle the vast expanse of sites across nine countires that were visited by the founder of Sikhism, Guru Nanak.

      In this exhibition, Amardeep shares some of these sites across Pakistan, many of which are now inaccessible, as sovereign nations have divided the geography.

      The exhibit will be on display in the Doy and Dee Henley Reading Room on the second floor of the Leatherby Libraries from November 22, 2019, to January 15, 2020. Join us on Thursday, November 21 for an opening reception, where Amardeep will share about his experiences.
