The exhibit, “Sikh: Legacy of the Punjab” was a big success in Washington, D.C., and has since made stops in Santa Barbara and Fresno, California.

On Saturday it makes its first Texas stop, opening at the Institute of Texan Cultures in conjunction with the 28th annual Asian Festival.

The exhibit runs until Jan. 3, 2016.

In this, the Year of the Ram, the 28th annual Asian Festival on the grounds of the Institute of Texan Cultures celebrates all things Asian with food, music, performances and crafts. There’ll be traditional Asian dance and music on three stages as well as demonstrations of Asian cooking, henna painting and palm reading.

With their distinctive dastaar, or turban, and the unshorn facial hair worn by men, Sikhs are often mistaken for Muslims, or even Hindus.

Sikhism, however, is a distinct religion, one that arose more than 500 years ago in Punjab, a region of South Asia in what is now northwest India. Today it has more than 22 million followers, making it the world’s fifth-largest religion.
