Sacred 'Museum of Trees' inaugurated in Chandigarh on Guru Purab

Dec 11, 2020 16:49 IST

To mark the 551st birth anniversary celebrations of the first Sikh master, Guru Nanak Dev, on November 30, a Museum of Trees has been inaugurated virtually in Chandigarh. 

The project is the brainchild of former IAS officer and author DS Jaspal who curated the museum. A sacred grove created out of genetic clones of 12 sacred trees associated with the Sikh religion is one of the many highlights. 

It is India's only outdoor walk-through museum where visitors can see replicas of different trees considered sacred by the Sikh community.
