Here at GT1588 there’s no politics, rigid ideology or preaching, just insightful articles, vibrant blogs, thought-provoking films and engaging events.


Our mission is to help you connect with the incredibly rich cultural heritage of the Sikhs.

We combine original research and stunning creative design to inform, entertain and inspire you in your quest for authentic knowledge.


GT1588 launched in 2011 with a major exhibition and landmark book on the Golden Temple of Amritsar.

We take our inspiration from the Golden Temple. As the Sikhs’ premiere shrine, it has served as a beacon of devotion, learning and inspiration ever since its founding in 1588. It uniquely encapsulates every aspect of Sikh heritage including art, architecture, history, literature, music, spiritual philosophy and the warrior tradition.


GT1588 is an initiative of Kashi House, a non-political, not-for-profit, social enterprise company. Kashi House is also the publishing partner of UKPHA.
