Kings and other devotees paying homage to Guru Nanak

Guru Nanak (1469-1538), a Hindu raised under Muslim rule and influence, combined Hindu and Islamic beliefs to achieve religious and social harmony. Sikhism believes in the unity of the Godhead and preaches a gospel of universal toleration. Here kings and devotees pay homage to the Guru as food and drinks are organised and served to a number of people.
