A London musuem is displaying nearly 100 stunning artworks, including jewellery and weaponry, from the Sikh Empire under Maharaja Ranjit Singh.

The artefacts at the Wallace Collection are drawn from major private and public collections.

The exhibition entitled ‘Ranjit Singh: Sikh, Warrior, King’ is running from 10 April to 20 October 2024.

The exhibition also features historic objects from his court, courtiers, and family, including items owned by the Maharaja and the most famous of his 30 wives, Maharani Jind Kaur.

The exhibition is an opportunity to see the collection of Sikh arms and armour alongside other Sikh artworks for the first time, according to the publicity material at the musuem’s website.
