St Mungo Museum of Religious Life and Art

Scottish Sikh Heritage Trail

St Mungo Museum was opened in 1993. It aims to explore the importance of religion in people's lives and promote understanding between people of different faiths.

In ‘The Gallery of Religious Life' are displays representing six of the world's religions, including Sikhism. The artefacts relate to Sikh religious life and include a portrait of Guru Nanak and a model of Harmandir Sahib, the Golden Temple at Amritsar.

Also on display is a banner made by Sikhs from Scotland under the direction of the artist Sandi Kiehlman to commemorate the 300th anniversary of the creation of the khalsa. It was presented to the Lord Provost of Glasgow at the museum in 1999. St Mungo Museum regularly displays temporary exhibitions, as well as holding interfaith events.
