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
