The first 30 seconds of the video will make you wonder what exactly is going on in this video on Holla Mohalla at Hazur Sahib, Nanded.

It’s a puratan (Old) tradition showing respect for the weapons of the Khalsa because all weapons are treated with the highest respect. Guru Gobind Singh Ji has also written Bani called Shastar Nam Mala which praises many different types of weapons of defense.

A tradition long forgotten in Punjab but maintained by Sikhs in the South especially at Hazur Sahib, Nanded, Maharashtra where it is performed during Holla Mohalla and other important events.
