The Guru Garanth Sahib is a collection of teachings and writings by Guru Nanak and other Gurus.
It is mostly written in Punjabi and is greatly respected by all Sikhs.
This book stresses on a society based on divine justice without oppression of any kind and about one-ness of the entire universe; it can be viewed as a symbol of pluralism, inter-faith harmony and diversity of Pakistan as it has inspirations from all major faiths of this land and thus, is a tangible example of intangible cultural quintessence of this land.
Sikhism was founded in the 16th century in Punjab district of Pakistan (in city “Talwandi”) of what is now known as Nankana Shib.
