With an estimated population of 5,000, the Sikhs of Karachi are one of the smallest religious communities in the city.  Living in fringes scattered across Karachi, a good number of men from the community are seamen, respected for their inherent strength and valour.  But a majority of them are from the salaried-class, working in the private sector.

Invisible from the mainstream life of the metropolitan, the Sikhs of the city have a universe of their own closed to the outside world. Living in areas like Saddar and Ranchore Line, considered the heart of the city, the Sikhs have managed to maintain their religious practices keeping the spiritual serenity alive amid the clamour of bustling city life. 

This week Kolachi takes an inside view into the private world of the quiet community, featuring photographs of some of the Gurdwaras, which are very much at the centre of the city, yet not so prominent.
