What is sengol?
In ancient India, kings carried a symbolic stick with them. This is called the scepter. Whoever had this, the actual governance of the entire state was run by his orders. That is why it was called the scepter. Religious gurus also used to wear it. At present also it is worn by most of the religious leaders. The four major Shankaracharyas of Hinduism and the major Popes of Christianity also carry a similar scepter which is a symbol of their power and authority. According to Indian scriptures, it was worn by kings and emperors while sitting on the throne.
