From simple objects produced in homage to the Gurus to fine pieces created at the royal courts of Punjab, the Sikh material heritage forms an important part of humankind's heritage. Since the time of the Gurus, Sikhs have produced or patronized objects of all types, some of extremely high quality and others intended for daily use.

Extant collections of Sikh heritage material include lavishly illustrated manuscripts produced at eighteenth- and nineteenth-century royal courts, gilded arms and armor, paintings and fine jewelry. Some examples of the handwriting of the Sikh Gurus themselves are also in existence. Other less artistically accomplished but no less important objects, such as religious and historical manuscripts and objects for everyday use also exist.
