Kalgi-embroidery of beads

 Wearing a Kalgi (a plume) on one’s turban signifies that the person is a royal person, a king and a person with great responsibility and respect;A Kalgi is a beautiful turban pin 

It has a very regal shape and form. Guru Gobind Singh was famous for wearing a Kalgi on his own turban. He so enjoyed these pins, that he was affectionately and reverently called Guru Kalgidar.
On behalf of the Sikhs from the West, we will gift a beautiful gold and be-jeweled Kalgi to Guru Gobind Singh's altar this October during the 300th anniversary celebration.
