Journeys through HistoryDate: Monday, 18 May, 2009
This July ASHT Tours brings you two unique glimpses of Anglo Sikh and Scottish Sikh Heritage. These guided tours will take you on a Journey through the shared heritage which is present in locations across the British Isles.
The Scottish Sikh Heritage Tour begins on 1st July with the first stop at Kenmore Churchyard the resting place of Maharajah Duleep Singh's infant son. The tour will continue until 7th of July and will include a lecture by a member of the Rattray Clan, a chance to see traditional Scottish Highland Games, visits to Stirling Castle, Edinburgh Castle and many other locations.
Last years highly successful Inaugural Sikh Heritage Tour organised in conjunction with Sikhpoint.com will be repeated this year between 8th-15th of July and will take guests to many of England's landmark monuments & buildings which have often hidden connections to the Sikhs.
'I treasured the visits to all the museums and the special treatment we received. We got to see and touch many rare treasures of the Sikh Kingdom, that most people do not even know exist'.Gurpreet Singh
