  • Is a historic Gurdwara and is close to Parliament. This is a place for reflection, where you feel an inner peace. I loved to have known the sikh culture, example of tolerance and solidarity between peoples.

  • It's very good pious, soothing peaceful very good parking facilities and other toilets and water facilities free of cost. Recliner for wheelchair and and there is paid Prasad for bunch amount for families and friends.
  • Must visit place, while in Delhi. Serene, calm, beautifully decorated & maintained. Enough of parking space, but there may not be usual daily langar ( community food service).
  • Its always very peaceful and a very soothing experience to be at this historic Gurudwara. This one marks the site of cremation of the ninth Sikh Guru, Sri Guru Tegh Bahadur ji, after his martyrdom in November 1675 for saving Hindu Kashmiri Pandits, under orders of Aurangzeb. The Gurudwara sahib is built near old Raisina village near Raisina Hill, at present Pandit Pant Marg, took 12 years to build. Lot of devotees from various walks of life were present and there was kirtan going on in the Gurudwara complex, one of the most sacred place among Sikh community. This is place is really divine and peaceful.
  • The Gurudwara Sahib is built in remembrance of Sikhs 9th Guru, Sri Guru Tegh Bahadur Sahib. When Sri Guru Tegh bahadur Sahib was martyred at Sri Sis Ganj Sahib , Guru Sahibs head was taken to Anandpur Sahib and Lakhi Shah Vanjara a Devotee of Guru Sahib, at great personal risk brought Guru Sahibs Body to his house and burned the entire house to cremate the body with all respect and tradition. The place was then the village Rakab Ganj and hence the name . Also the Gurudwara Sahib has a huge hall on the name of Bhai Lakhi Shah Vanjara which is utilised for weddings and other religious ceremonies. Also Gurudwara Sahib houses the Office of Delhi Sikh Gurudwara Prabhandak Committee.
  • Nice and calm place to visit and to know about religious facts of Sikh religion. You'll really enjoy langur..
