Sirhind entrenching tool

Sirhind Entrenching Tool - Indian Hoe Tools

By Mike Webb

The Sirhind Canal is a large irrigation canal that carries water from the Sutlej River in Punjab state, India. It is one of the oldest and biggest irrigation works in the Indus river system, and was inaugurated in 1882 CE.The canal begins at Ropar headworks near Ropar city in Rupnagar district of Punjab.

Thousands of manual workers were employed (possibly with digging implements of all types) and you also find that the Sirhind area is still to this day very much involved in the manufacture of digging tools.
