Introduction / History
The name Sonar comes from the word Sona meaning gold. They work as goldsmiths and in other work too.

Sonar Sikhs live in Punjab. They speak Punjabi and Hindi and read and write in Gurmukhi. Wheat is the cereal they eat. Divorce and marrying again are allowed. Sons and daughters inherit the property in the same amounts on the death of the father with the oldest son becoming in charge of the home. The name of a Sikh child is given by them after reciting of the Sikh religious texts.

In Haryana, Sikh marriages are performed around the Guru Granth Sahib which is the main religious literature of Sikhism. There are Sikhs in Delhi too.

Sonar Sikhs are favorable to education.
