Another Super Nihang Turban

Sharanjit Singh from Prince Rupert, BC, Canada just sent SikhNet this picture that he took in Anandpur Sahib of a Nihang Singh with a really tall turban.

The turban that Major Singh tied was really wide…and this one is so tall! You have to to wonder how long and how many people it took to tie these turbans. I don’t think it is possible to do this by yourself.

  1. I know, I noticed the same thing!

    I was going to add it to RateMyTurban.com but we are in the process of moving the website to a new server. When it is back up I will add it.

    This is great. Notice the neat layers that are clearly visible. I would send this to rate my turban.

    I love these tall turbans. I wish I knew how to tie one too.

    A lot of young Sikhs get into doubts and it is very common. It is not good to keep the doubts. There are a lot of misunderstandings going on. If anyone has a misundertanding, brother/sister can contact me at [email protected]

    I will try my best to remove the doubt.

    Nihang Singh's during war were known for there large turbans. Also during battle the bigger the turban the better. Provides protection for the head. Nihang Singh's are Guru Gobind Singh Ji's 'Ladali Fauj'. I'm not sure about the correct word for Ladali in english but those who know punjabi must know what I'm on about.

    Hi guys.. just wondering..our gurus told us to COVER our heads..but whats the point of having a “heavy duty” paag?? i wear a paag myself..(the kenyan style) ;) loll.. which are probably the smallest known turbans today. thanks

    to the people asking “what’s the point of a large turban?”, what’s it to you? if someone wants a big or small turban that’s their own business…  sod off already and leave the Singh to his own stylee…
