The foundation stone of Sikhism was laid in India by the one and only Guru Nanak. The doctrine of Sikhism believes in one god and one religion. Sikhism started spreading its wings in India in 1500 B.C. in the district of Punjab, which is now shared by Pakistan and India. The doctrine of Sikhism was spread in India by Guru Nanakji and his nine Sikh gurus.

The last Sikh Guru was Guru Gobind Singh. He formed a community of Khalsa for spreading thought and action of Sikhism. He developed khalsa into a different form reminding them of their obligations. Often Indian visa travelers have noticed some of the Sikhs, carrying a knife along with them. In the year 1999, Sikh community celebrated the 300th birth anniversary of Khalsa.
