This is a Nihang Singh, the descendants of Guru Gobind Singh's army.

Sikh traditionally allow their hair to grow naturally as a symbol of respect for the perfection of God's creation. Their long hair is covered by a turban. For more information, go to en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kesh_(Sikhism).

The Golden Temple is the most sacred temple for the Sikh religion.
