Thousands of pilgrims gathered in this holy Sikh city on Wednesday to participate in 'Hola Mohalla' festival. The sea of men, women and children is seen near the main shrine of Takht Keshgarh Sahib.   After the 'Harmandar Sahib' Golden Temple in Amritsar, the second largest Sikh shrine, the fortress of vehicles was heading towards the streets leading to this holy city. The three-day Hola Mohalla festival is celebrated during Holi festival.

In this shrine, the tenth Guru of Sikhs, Govind Singh, founded Khalsa Panth Sikhism. The Hola Mohalla Festival began around 1701, when Guru Gobind Singh used to inspire his army for a fierce fight to keep his army ready for war. A  local citizen Avtar Singh said, "Hundreds of Nihang Sikhs are gathered in this religious city for Hola Mohalla festivals and exhibit their skills through war art 'Gatka'."
