Visit To Gurdwara Bangla Sahib, Delhi

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

My religious practices are always interesting and elusive to others. A Hindu Brahmin, who studied in Christian Missionary , who worked in Muslim Minority College and who has Sikh Friends will obviously have interesting perception of  God and religions. I love visiting temples, churches, Dargah and Gurudwara.

Me and My Solitude does wonders….visited Gurdwara Bangla Sahib for the first time and its a serene experience.

Gurdwara Bangla Sahib is the most prominent Sikh gurdwara, or Sikh house of worship, in Delhi, known for its association with the eighth Sikh Guru, Guru Har Krishan, and the pond inside its complex, known as the “Sarovar”, whose water is considered holy by Sikhs and is known as “Amrit”. It was first built as a small temple by Sikh General, Sardar Bhagel Singh in 1783, who supervised the construction of nine Sikh shrines in Delhi in the same year, during the reign of Mughal Emperor, Shah Alam II.

It is situated near Connaught Place, New Delhi and is instantly recognizable by its stunning golden dome and tall flagpole, Nishan Sahib. To know more about this wonderful place please check this link http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gurudwara_Bangla_Sahib

Lansdowne is a cantonment town in Pauri Garhwal district in the Indian state of Uttarakhand.
Lansdowne was founded and named after then Viceroy of India, Lord Lansdowne in 1887.Lansdowne was developed by the British for catering for the Recruits Training center of the Garhwal Rifles. Lansdowne was a major place of the activities of freedom fighters from British Garhwal during British period.

This  September, I had the privilege of visiting this lovely place along with my friends. The beauty of this place is that it is still untouched by the commercial and polluted external world. This is an ideal place for the ones who want to relax from their office stress and for the ones who love spending time in nature.

Beauty of Lansdowne lies in its weather…one moment it is cloudy..other moment it is sunny and other moment it may drizzle…this lovely weather has capability to bring smile on any frustrated soul 😉

Me and my friends had long walks in this wonderful place and above all in life its not the destination that matters..its the journey and the people whom we who have makes the journey beautiful 🙂

You too check this place and you would love the visit 🙂
