Temple of Sikhs Jun 10, 2012
Gurudwara Bangla Sahib is one of the Skih religion temples in Delhi. This place is located near chandini chowk market and on the way of Redfort, New Delhi, India.

All sikhs around will visit this place frequently to pray and be associated with their Guru. I have seen a group of people after wedding came with bride and groom to get the blessing.

The music played here is soothing. Free prasadam will be distributed for all visit this place.visitors to this place have to cover their head and to wash their feet before entering this place.

Opposite to this building there is structure where all sikhs seen praying while leaving the place too. Overall felt nice though I dont know much about the relegion.

Amazing music, oldest Sikh place of worship in New Delhi Feb 12, 2011
The Gurudwara Bangla Sahib is located in the heart of New Delhi and serves as the most prominent and oldest place of Sikh worship in the capital. For Sikhs, it is closely associated with the eighth Sikh guru.

The sight is a rather handsome building, with a large congregational area. To the side, there is a rather large pond, stocked with huge fish. The water is used by the worshippers to clean their hands and face.

I thought the music here was amazing. Everyone is permitted to enter and the musicians seem to be a constant feature. I didn’t understand a word of it but thought it was very relaxing and inspiring.

After you have visited inside, there is a queue for free prasadam which is usually consumed there and then. If you wish to eat a little more, the kitchen serves a simple but nutritious meal. For this, you must pay a small amount of money and purchase a ticket near the entrance.

All visitors are welcome here irrespective of their faith. Men must cover their heads with a handkerchief (provided at the entrance) if they don’t have a turban, and I think women have to cover their heads too. You leave your shoes at the entrance as well, and you should take your socks off too.

For the music alone, I thought this was an amazing place to visit. For the music alone, I would return again if I was in New Delhi.
