As part of our new series How To Asia, representatives from the Tri-State Sikh Cultural Society will teach students how to tie a Sikh turban. The turban is one of the most visible signs of the Sikh faith. Our presenters will show students how to tie the turban and talk about the meaning of the turban for the Sikh religion and culture. Participants will have a chance to try their hand at tying a Sikh turban on themselves.
The Tri-State Sikh Cultural Society and Pittsburgh Sikh Gurdwaras are the main outlet for the Sikh religion and culture in the Pittsburgh area. Offering classes in religion, culture, and Punjabi language, the Gurdwaras opens its doors to believers of Sikhism as well as interested community members. Sikhism was founded in the 15th century on the Indian Subcontinent. We hope all students will have a chance to come and learn more about this vibrant and exciting world religion.
