  • 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 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. However, before their body could be quartered and exposed to public view, it was stolen under the cover of darkness by one of his disciples, Lakhi Shah Vanjara who, then burnt his house to cremate Guru's body; today, at this site stands Gurdwara Rakab Ganj Sahib The trunk of the tree beneath which the head of the Guru was severed and the well used by him for taking bath during his prison term have been preserved in the shrine. Also, adjoining the gurudwara, stands the Kotwali (police station), where Guru was imprisoned and his disciples were tortured. Located close to it is the Sunehri Masjid (Chandni Chowk). Tourist Tips: 1. Keep your head covered with any dupatta, scarf or handkerchief.If someone does not bring any scarf, dupatta then many scarfs are available in a big basket which is free provided, placed at the entrance of Gurudwara. 2.Shoes are forbidden in the holy place.Leave them on a rack outside. 3.Maintain silence when you entering the Gurudwara Sahib. Opening Time: The Gurudwara is open 24/7 Things To Do: 1.Attend the Shabad Kirtan(religious hymns) and prayer session and take the blessings. 2. get Karah(hoy), Prasad. 3. Eat Langar from Holy Kitchen. 4.The tall Flag called Nishan Sahib is its landmark structure.
  • First time visiting a gurudwara, before entering you need to watch your toes and hands, so if you are wearing a shoe make sure you are removing the socks. There are volunteers who will take your shoes and give you tokens and that very safe. When you will be entering the main door you need to cover your head, if you don’t have any clothes or head covers don’t worry they will provide you at the door and at the exit you can drop of the head cover that was given to you. Overall it was good experience, they were singing or praying I didn’t realize but for sure it sounded comforting.
  • Wahe Guru Ji Da Khalsa... Wahe Guru Ji Di Fateh... This place doesn't require any review of a comman explorer like me. Sis Ganj Sahib is well maintained just like other gurudwaras, it has an important role in Sikhism. 24*7 Langer runs here, you can take prashad. All facilities like parking, stay for guests etc available. Holy place of martyrdom of Shri Guru Teg Bahadur Ji is on the square in front of gurudwara. A museum is also there where you should definitely visit to know the history of Sikhism and the contribution of holy saints to save Hinduism and Sikhism.
  • It's revered place. You will find peace and harmony here. It's a holy place for Sikhs which are a brave and fierce breed. Sikhs are very devoted to their Gurus and their religion.
