Within walking distance of Kings Cross and St Pancras Stations, the British Library is one of the greatest repositories of printed material in the world.
Here can be found the entire archives of British India from the founding of the East India Company, to the annexation of the Punjab and Independence.
The Library is home to the greatest collection of Sikh and Punjabi manuscripts outside India. Amongst these manuscripts are handwritten examples of Sikh Scriptures and the prayer book of Rani Jindan, Maharajah Duleep Singh‘s mother.
The British Library displayed a unique exhibition, Faith & Brotherhood: Treasures of the Sikhs, from July to September 2004 to coincide with the launch of the Anglo Sikh Heritage Trail.
