The book is about a prospective New Museum: the Sikh heritage and sociocultural milieu preserved by the Gurudwara sacred complex in the format of Eco-Museum/In situ museum based on community. In the Eco-museum structure, the most significant point is people's participation in one's own heritage conservation, which is seen in the sacred complex of a Gurudwara. The present study has enabled us to get acquainted with all these socioreligio-cultural parameters of a Gurudwara of the Sikh community in clear terms. The present study attempts to draw a parallel line between religio - cultural heritage (Gurudwara) and a museum is similar. Both these are treasure troves of Indian cultural heritage. This book will help readers to understand the concept of a New Museum/New Museology through sacred heritage. This is the best example of experimentation of a New Museum in the Indian context. Capturing the very context of a cultural environment has resulted in the New Museology movement.
