The Anandpur Sahib Heritage Foundation organised the 4th edition of the popular Sodhi Kishan Singh Memorial Polo Cup at Sri Anandpur Sahib during the Holla Mohalla celebration on 10,11th and 12th March 2017. An All-Star USA team from the historic Oak Brook Polo Club in Chicago (USA) and Gillcrest Homes (UK) played a round robin series of matches against the Royal Anandpur Sahib Blues Polo Team, which was narrowly won by Gillcrest Homes (UK) in the dying minutes before a record crowd of lustily cheering spectators at the newly developed Anandpur Sahib Arena Polo Stadium, opposite the Panj Piara Park in Sri Anandpur Sahib. The 5 day celebration of the spectacular Holla Mohalla festival plays host to over 5 million visitors. The mela regarded as one of the 10 most colorful festivals of the world culminates in the traditional Mohalla procession by the Nihang dals and the daring display of medieval martial arts and horsemanship showcased by the ‘Guru ki ladli fauj’ or beloved army of the Guru.
