SriGranth and SriDasam are online websites connected with the two main Sikh Scriptures. SriGranth is a Sri Guru Granth Sahib resource while the SriDasam relates to the Dasam Granth. The sites offer the original text of the relevant Sikh scripture in original Gurmukhi form, Roman notation of the original text and translation into English and other languages.

It allows a non-reader of Gurmukhi to read and understand the Sikh scriptures. The sites have been revised many times and now offer a simple and user-friendly interface to search, read and understand this important compositions by the Sikh Gurus and others. Most Sikh principles and concepts can be learnt and understood from the text at these and other similar websites.
