About Gurudwara Bangla Sahib (Sikh Temple)

In the much-loved region of Connaught Place, you will find a beautiful white serene structure, Gurudwara Bangla Sahib. It is one of the most prominent Sikh gurdwaras and is known for its association with the eighth Sikh Guru, Guru Har Krishan Ji. A number of tourists are seen visiting this holy place which is overflowing with positive vibes. You will find a "Sarovar" (a holy water body) inside the Gurudwara whose water people consume and splash on themselves to gain blessings of the Almighty. It was first built as a small shrine by Sikh General Sardar Bhagel Singh in 1783. Prayers are going on in this Gurudwara almost 24/7 and even if you are not known to the Punjabi language, you will still find the chants peaceful. You can also indulge in "Seva" or selfless service that can be done in this gurudwara for serving "Langar" (Meals) to the people who visit the gurudwara irrespective of their religion. Their "Prasad" is very famous among the people who visit this place as it is cooked in pure desi Ghee with lots of love! You can visit this place to spend a peaceful and quiet time and gain the blessing of the Almighty God.
