Khanda is the most important religious symbol of Sikhism.

It is as important as is the cross for Christianity or the star of David for the juidaism.

  • Khanda is composed of several weapons used by the Sikhs:

* A two-edged sword with a broad blade oukhanda. It is located in the middle.

* A chakram, in the center.
* Two curved daggers: kirpan: Miri et Piri. They symbolize the dual nature: temporal and spiritual, of guru Hargobind.
