Photographer's Note

Nihang is a an armed Sikh order. Early Sikh military history is dominated by the Akali Sikh military order particularly for many famous military victories won while often heavily out-numbered. The Akalis have historically been held in great affection and respect by Sikhs due the pivotal role they have played in Sikh history and Sikh military history in particular.

The Nihang order is today mostly ceremonial due to it being peace time but in times of war for the Sikh religion the Akalis have historically spear-headed the attack on the enemy
