Zamzama Thaup Paran

The Sikh History

In this episode of The Sikh History Series with Bhai Surdarshan Singh Ji, we learn about the powerful Zamzama Cannon, also known as Kim’s Gun or Bhangi di Toap. Cast in 1757 in Lahore during the Durrani Empire, this 4.5-meter-long cannon with a 24cm bore was the largest of its time. Made from brass and copper with intricate floral patterns and Persian verses, it bore the inscription “A destroyer even of the strongholds of the heaven.” Used in battle by the Durranis from 1761, it was seized by the Sikh army led by Sardar Hari Singh Bhangi in 1762. The composition “Thaup Paran” details its devastating impact in battle, showcasing its thunderous roar and fearsome power.
