Gates of Heaven – The Darshan Dwar Phulkari Embroidery Textile

.

“Naa Maange Yeh Sona Chandi

Maange Darshan Devi Tere

Tere Dwar Khada Ek Jogi”

– Song from a 1954 Bollywood film Nagin

“Here I stand at your gates, as  a devotee who has forsaken everything else

Am not pleading for Boons of Gold or of Silver

Am pleading only for a Glimpse of YOU”

Darshan Dwar Phulkari Baghs are textiles offered to gurudwaras or temples by the Sikh community upon the fulfillment of wishes or at important life events. Compared to the other Phulkari Baghs created as wedding textiles, the Darshan Dwar textiles are rarer in the world of textile collectibles.

Showcased below – in the order of Good to Great – are a few Darshan Dwar Phulkari Baghs created in the spirit of religious devotion and inspired by the Sikh Gurudwaras.
