Take an amazing step back into the past with this painting of the 17th century woman Sikh, Mata Sundari. It depicts the Mata (mother) in her finest. 

Mata Sundri Ji was the wife of Guru Gobind Singh Ji, the tenth guru of the Sikhs. Born on 23rd Dec. 1667, she was married to the Guru in 1686. Hers was a remarkable personality that blended to a distinction, the diverse roles of a devoted wife, an ideal mother and a confident and far-sighted guide of the community.

After the death of Guru Gobind Singh Ji, the Sikh masses found themselves in a state of disarray because of State terror, in addition to other hardships. In this difficult situation, it was Mata SundriJi who served as their guide, raised their morale, and virtually breathed new life into them through her wisdom, erudition and spiritual power.

It was she who got the writings of Guru Gobind Singh collected and compiled as "Dasam Granth". She also persuaded devout Sikhs to prepare copies of holy hymns to be compiled in Adi Granth Sahib. Further, Mata Sundri Ji took care to ensure that the tradition of "langar" (free community kitchen) continued to flourish.
