Sunehri Bir (handwritten) SGGSJ Matan Sahib Kashmir

2 posts in this topic

I had the blessings to see and photograph a rare handwritten bir of SGGSJ known as the Sunehri bir because some of the writing is in gold ink. It's held at Matan Sahib in Kashmir and only comes out rarely. I was fortunate that they allowed me to photograph it. The photography is all mine... 

I will also include he history of this bir...

The saroop looks more like a late 18 century saroop than the 17th century as the article claims. The writing style is not like the earlier recensions. Also the grandeur of the saroop possibly points towards Maharaja Ranjit Singh's times when sarops were produced with some elegance.
