PUNJAB: HOME TO MANY RELIGION

Diversity prevails in every nook and corner of Punjab!

Punjab has historically been one of regions in the sub-continent that was most tolerant of diversity and supportive of plurality till recent times. It is here that we first encounter the phenomenon of ethnic, religious, social and cultural diversity clearly testified by ancient literature — religious and secular. Source: DAWN. The province of Punjab is a kaleidoscope of different religions and cultures. It represents all major religious traditions of the East – Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism and Sikhism. Muslim Shrines, Sikh Gurdwaras, Buddhist Stupas and Hindu Temples are scattered across Punjab from north to south. For the millions of Sikhs around the world, the holiest sites such as Nankana Sahib – the birthplace of Guru Nanak. Likewise, for Buddhists, the Gandhara civilization scattered around Taxila and its environs has a very special religious significance. Diversity prevails in every nook and corner of Punjab, where you may witness a significant variation in the beliefs and values of people.
