Hundreds of people lined the streets of Huddersfield to watch the colourful Sikh parade for Vaisakhi.
The festival marks the day in 1699 when the 10th Guru, Guru Gobind Singh, founded the Khalsa, the collective body of initiated Sikhs that are regarded as the living form of the Guru.
It also marks cultural celebrations all over India for a new harvest season.
Traditionally every year to celebrate the event, a procession is held through Huddersfield town centre between the two Gurdwaras of the town.
This year’s procession started at the Sikh Temple in Fartown before making its way through the town to the Prospect Street Temple.
Participants stopped on route at the Hindu Temple in Zetland Street, where refreshments were served to the marching congregation.
On arriving at the Springwood Gurdwara, everyone as invited into the Temple where the traditional community meal was served and prayers were sung.
Temple president Inderpal Randhawa said: “Vaisakhi is a joyous occasion in India and now celebrated around the world.
“This is both as a cultural and, more importantly, for the Sikhs, as a religious celebration.
“Year on year the procession is growing to well over 1,000 people attending from all over Yorkshire.
“The idea is to take the Holy Guru Granth Sahib, which contains the writings and prayers of the Gurus and Holy Saints, into the local community.
“Behind the installed Guru Granth Sahib the congregation gather and march, singing the prayers and praising the Lord.
“Some as part of their humbleness walk barefoot throughout.”
