Gurudwara Bangla Sahib, New Delhi

Golden domes and ornate carvings accentuate the profile of Gurudwara Bangla Sahib, the site of some of the final acts of Harkrishan Dev, a Sikh guru. Originally constructed in the 17th century and largely rebuilt after World War II, the building lies on one edge of an extensive reflective pool. Explore the compound, wandering under arcade walkways on your way to the temple itself. Be sure to follow posted procedures before entering, which include washing your feet.

  • This was a cool experience but we didn’t really know anything about what to do or where to go during our visit. We bought head coverings outside the gate, but I would recommend bringing your own scarf. You have to leave your shoes before you enter the temple and there is a place to check them for free. There is a free museum that we walked through after we saw the temple but it might make more sense to see the exhibit first so you have more understanding about what happens inside the temple. We were able to walk into the kitchen to see the volunteers making the free communal meal that is available to anyone who wants to eat. You can sit and relax inside temple and listen to the prayers for as long as you want - no photos allowed inside the temple
  • This great monument has truly stood the test of time. Even today when we are seated against the cool marble facing the temple we are liberated from all thoughts and captivated for what this place stands for. Take a pause and feed yourself with this amazing abode of God. Salutation to this revered sacred place of Sikhs and its great nature. I believe no other temple or people are so welcoming and open. You can partake in prayers or offer services in the Langar (community kitchen). Respect the sanctity of this place when you visit. We are in awe of the great religion Sikhism for this opportunity to feel the true essence of brotherhood and humanity here.
  • Highly well maintained. Walking distance from SHIVAJI METRO STATION. Students can opt to study here for hours because of the peace around the lake.Afternoon is little hot as marble gets hot, so always walk on open mat. Walk around bare feet. Keep in mind to cover your head with handkerchief available there but do prefer to use your own. Volunteer enthusiasm is highly appreciable. Potable water always available. Feeling of inner Peace listening to Guru bani.
  • Highly peacefull and clean place. You can sit here and enjoyed the singing. The small events give you feel of energy, happy and the peace. You can sit as many hours you want. Such a pleasant place to spend time either with family or friends. I loved the place and the specially The peace in the air & the cleanliness they are maintaining. Hats off. You must visit here.....
  • Beautiful beautiful place. Don't worry if you're not sure of dress code as they will provide suitable coverings for foreigners. The complex is lovely...we were literally dazzled by the sun on the white marble. Inside was gorgeous. We didn't have a guide but we're given a informstion booklet. Stunning...
