Sikhs Celebrate Hola Mohalla

Men stretch out their hands for a bowl of Bhang, or cannabis, at the annual fair of Hola Mohalla in Anandpur Sahib, 80 kilometers north of Chandigarh.

The Nihangs display their martial skills and attire during the fair, believed to maintain the exact tradition as was established by the Guru
