Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum

Scottish Sikh Heritage Trail

The Museum was opened in Kelvingrove Park following the Glasgow International Exhibition of 1901. On display are a range of artworks and objects collected from all over the world.

At Kelvingrove visitors can see a painting by the Singh twins entitled ‘Mr Singh's India'. It was commissioned by Glasgow museums and represents shared Indian and Scottish culture.

There are several other items around the museum of interest including a chauri from the Punjab dated 1898 which can be found on display in the ‘Glasgow Stories' gallery.  It is part of a permanent display on the South Asian community in Glasgow. Also included in this exhibit is an armguard from the mid-1800s.

In the ‘Conflict and Consequences' gallery visitors can see the India Medal of 1895 which has a depiction of a British and an Indian soldier on one side.
