Sikhism was militarised by Guru Hargobind, most likely in response to his father's execution and for the protection of the Sikh community. He represented it by donning two swords, which stand for the multiple meanings of mr and pr (temporal power and spiritual authority). Guru Hargobind built the Akal Takht in front of the Harmandir Sahib in Amritsar (the throne of the timeless one). The Khalsa (the collective body of the Sikhs) today's highest seat of earthly authority is the Akal Takht.
