  • It is conveniently located near Chandni Chowk, so it is worth dropping by if you are already there. The side itself is not very expansive and I felt more impressed by Gurudwara Sri Bangla Sahib. All.....  more

  • This lovely temple is in the midst of Old Delhi and a historic site, the martyrdom of the ninth Sikh Guru (dating back to 1675). It gives one some exposure to the Sikh religion and for me as a westerner was a great experience. A very nice old building (built in 1783), you enter in bare feet and wash your feet prior entry, the music, the reverence of the interior, the colours and the music and chants are quite amazing. It is indeed a special place. It is worth reading about the Temple before your visit (we sadly had not done that but have since done so and relived the visit reviewing the many photos taken). We now know a lot more about the history and philosophy behind the Sikh religion and way of life. It is also important to visit the kitchens and see where the huge amounts of fresh food are prepared – vegetables and breads, to feed the poor. A very worthwhile visit and a unique insight into a major part of Indian culture.
  • This adorable temple is in the midst of old Delhi and a ancient site, the martyrdom of the ninth Sikh Guru (relationship returned to 1675). It offers one a few exposure to the Sikh faith and for me as a westerner changed into a fantastic revel in. a completely satisfactory antique building (constructed in 1783), you enter in naked feet and wash your ft prior access, the song, the reverence of the interior, the colors and the tune and chants are pretty first rate. it's miles certainly a special area. it's miles worth analyzing approximately the Temple before your go to (we alas had not executed that but have when you consider that achieved so and relived the visit reviewing the numerous photographs taken). We now understand plenty extra approximately the records and philosophy in the back of the Sikh religion and way of existence. it is also essential to visit the kitchens and see where the large quantities of clean meals are prepared – greens and breads, to feed the poor. a totally worthwhile visit and a completely unique perception into a first-rate a part of Indian subculture.

  • This place is wonderful, because being here is a feeling of purity and peace where you forgot all your miseries and have a positive mind. There are several types of seva (services) include everything when you come in Delhi you can please visit this place Most Important : Keeping the head covered is important, and headscarves are available in a basket at the entrance for free History :The ninth Sikh Guru, Guru Tegh Bahadur was beheaded here on 11 November 1675 on the orders of the Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb, when Guru Tegh Bahadur protested against the forceful conversion of Kashmiri Pandits and dharmic people to Islam.
