Gurudwara Bangla Saheb – Home Of Peace And Tranquillity

Gurudwara Bangla Saheb
A mesmerizing view of Bangla Saheb Gurudwara and its Sarovar

Gurudwara Bangla Saheb, situated in Delhi, exemplifies unwavering faith and devotion and attracts numerous devotees daily. Originally the residence (referred to as ‘bangla’ in Hindi) of Raja Jai Singh, a military leader under Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb, it was later transformed into a Gurudwara and became associated with Guru Harkrishan, the eighth Guru of the Sikhs.

Stepping away from the commotion of Delhi and the whirlwind of thoughts within oneself, a visit to Bangla Saheb is akin to entering a sanctuary of tranquility. The sacred prayers known as shabad-kirtan resonate, while the fragrance of karah-prashad, the sweet sacred offering, permeates the air. The Gurudwara is recognizable by its golden dome and towering Nishan Saheb, which are visible from the main road. Within the complex lies a Sarovar, a holy pond believed to possess healing properties. Some devotees immerse themselves in its waters, while others undertake a parikrama, a reverent walk around the Sarovar. Additionally, one can engage in seva, selfless service, by serving amrit, the holy water, participating in the preparation and distribution of langar, the sacred meal, or by helping maintain the cleanliness of the Gurudwara premises. For those interested in Sikh history, an art museum in Bangla Saheb offers an opportunity for exploration.

The power of faith establishes a profound connection between the devotee and the Divine, resulting in spiritual blessings. Visit Bangla Saheb and personally experience this transformative power.
