For all those of you who have pre-ordered the book that accompanies the exhibition, here is an insight into the design journey that our designer, Juga Singh, went through to produce this incredible publication.
Take some time to appreciate the finer details of the objects, artwork and photography on display in the exhibition. Every piece, every image tells its own story.
Whenever the curators are able, they are offering free guided tours to visitors to help them get the most out of the exhibition. Make sure you take the tour too.
We’ve been asking visitors to the exhibition if they know who the organisers are. Turns out that even though they love it, almost nobody knows who organised it. So we at the UK Punjab Heritage Association – UKPHA – obviously have a lot of work to do to raise our public profile!
The Golden Temple model has been a real labour of love for Juga Singh, our designer. It was a brave (some might say foolhardy) decision to attempt something this complex in such a short timeframe, given that he had never done anything like this before.
The latest creation from our mad genius designer, Juga Singh, has arrived at the exhibition: a finely etched, to-scale, perspex model showing the temple complex as it once was, including all the original bungas which once encircled the Golden Temple.
One of the main aims of the exhibition is to help people reconnect with their roots and heritage. We all too often underestimate the immense legacy of teachings left to us by our Gurus and forefathers, and fail to appreciate their value to us in the modern world.
