The Hola Mohalla took place in the week of March 3 in 2018. Here are some pictures of this impressive event.

Sikhs have always stood out for their bravery and skill in arms. Every year in March a big festival brings together the Sikhs in the city of Anandpur Sahib in Punjab. The participants then put on their traditional blue and orange clothes and their (sometimes very) impressive turbans and parade on foot or on horseback. This gives rise to impressive demonstrations of equestrian art, all in a friendly atmosphere and ultimately very peaceful despite all the weapons carried by the participants.

 

about the place, Anandpur Sahib:

Anandpur is the Mecca of Sikhs in Punjab. The last two Sikh gurus lived there, Guru Teg Bahadur and Guru Gorbad Singh. The city is also an important pilgrimage site for Sikhs and each year the national holiday of Sikhs, the Hola Mohalla is celebrated there.
