Punjab is now part of Pakistan and India after 1947 separation. Guru Nanak Dev Ji was born in 1469 in Talwandi, now known as Nankana Sahib, in Punjab Pakistan. He was a religious leader who rejected the caste system and emphasized the importance of unity and equality among all humans.

    Guru Nanak Dev Ji was followed by nine other Gurus who continued to develop and expand the Sikh religion. The last Guru, Guru Gobind Singh Ji, founded the Khalsa, a group of baptized Sikhs who are committed to upholding the principles of Sikhism.
