Delhi Tourism - Friday, February 14, 2020 8:33:51 AM

The Gurudwara Bangla Sahib is one of the prominent Sikh pilgrimage centers in Delhi,  located on Ashok Road with close proximity to the Connaught Place.
According to history (in 17th century) this gurudwara was the palace of Raja Jai Singh. In 1664, (the eighth Sikh Guru) Guru Har Krishan Sahib Ji, came to visit the King and cured people who were suffering from smallpox and cholera epidemic by distributing them water from the tank. The water tank which Guru Ji used, still exists today inside the gurudwara and is believed to possess medicinal properties.
 
The Gurudwara includes the main prayer hall (containing the Granth Sahib, the holy book of the Sikhs), the water tank in the middle,  a hospital, a museum, a school, a library, and an art gallery. As in all gurudwaras, langar is served in the Bangla Sahib where everyone irrespective of caste, religion, or creed is welcome here to share a meal.
Few important information for visitors are:
  • The gurudwara is open daily for 24 hours.
  • There are no Entry Fees.
  • You are required to dress humbly and you must keep your head covered inside the gurudwara.
  • You are required to take off your shoes before entering the gurudwara.
  • On the birth anniversary of Guru Har Krishan (the eighth Sikh Guru), special gatherings and prayers are held.
