Ranjit Singh: Sikh, Warrior, King
A Talk by Davinder Toor

Join guest curator and collector Davinder Toor for this special introduction to the Wallace Collection’s major exhibition exploring the life of the great Sikh leader Ranjit Singh (1780–1839). With an unwavering sense of destiny, Ranjit Singh conquered the Punjab, an area that today encompasses Pakistan, following a period of anarchy caused by decades of Afghan invasions. Ranjit Singh’s leadership led to a golden age marked by thriving trade, flourishing arts, and a formidable army. By the early 19th century, he emerged as the undisputed Maharaja, establishing the influential Sikh Empire.

The exhibition Ranjit Singh: Sikh, Warrior, King is at The Wallace Collection in London from 10 April to 20 October 2024.

Date and time: Sat 20 July 2.30pm
