nihang sikh

By sawsengee  
Street capture of a nihang sikh, easily recognizable by the striking colour garments, extended head turbans & long unshaven hair & beards. The nihang sikhs or akalis (literally mean immortals) are warriors carrying swords & spears & are guardians of the sikh religion & places of worship. Here is a link to further understand the nihang sikhs:

Lovely picture ee. They are also very ferocious. When i first went to Harminder Sahib in 1972 , i saw a nihang nearly chop off a guy's leg as he was sitting on the floor with his leg pointing to the temple as that was disrespectful. Thankfully sense prevailed.
