    A must visit to feel centred and balanced and contemplate about the mysteries of life
    In the hustle bustle of a hyper active noisy city, Gurudwara Sri Bangla Sahib is an island of Bliss, Peace & Abundant Serenity. The soulful devotional music transports one to another land and just sitting in the inner hall, where the Guru Granth Saheb resides brings so much of contentment and peace of mind that is hard to describe. Bangla means residence . The eighth Guru Harkrishan Ji 🙏🙏 was the guest of Raja Jaisingh and stayed in his residence which later got converted into a Gurudwara. Guru Saheb’s benevolence and love helped cure small pox in Delhi as people sprinkled the water on their bodies from the tank, where Guru Saheb had dipped his feet 😍😍😍😍 A must visit to feel centred and balanced and contemplate about the mysteries of life

    Gurudwara Bangla Sahib, New Delhi: Serenity Amidst Cleanliness
    My visit to Gurudwara Bangla Sahib was a truly serene experience. As I entered this revered Sikh house of worship, a sense of calm enveloped me. The Gurudwara's immaculate cleanliness stood out prominently, reflecting the devotion to maintaining a pristine environment for all visitors. The peaceful ambience was palpable, offering a tranquil refuge amidst the hustle and bustle of New Delhi. The spiritual aura and the soothing sounds of hymns created an atmosphere conducive to introspection and solace. Beyond being a place of religious significance, Gurudwara Bangla Sahib stood as a testament to hospitality, serving free meals to all, irrespective of faith or background, through its langar, a communal kitchen. Overall, Gurudwara Bangla Sahib is not just a place of worship; it's a haven of cleanliness, peace, and inclusivity—a must-visit for those seeking spiritual tranquility in the heart of New Delhi.

    Packed but really nice
    Nice because it's a bit different. you'll have to wear a bandana if you want to get in. There are free ones people can wear then leave for other people to wear...so maybe it's best of you get a cheap one from the market. No photos allowed inside. Nice inside and outside.

    Excellent experience
    This was my first time visiting a Gurudwara and it was definitely a memorable experience. Seeing behind the scenes of the community kitchen was incredible, there is such a strong sense of community in all of the volunteers who cook for people from all backgrounds. This shoukd be on your list of things to see in New Delhi.

    Beautiful and Giving
    In order to enter this temple, you need to take your shoes and socks off and walk through a little water to cleanse your feet. Men and women also have to wear a head scarf which they provide if you need one. The temple is very beautiful with lush carpets and a huge chandelier. The holy book is taken out during the day and put away in its bedroom in the evening. They have a dining room where people sit in rows and eat for free. The volunteers come around and replenish food as people need it. The kitchen is immense with industrial size machines. There is a group of ladies making bread. They feed thousands of people throughout the day. You can walk to the pool area but you are not allowed to take photos there. Remember to keep your scarf on until you put on your shoes and leave the premises.

    Felt very welcome here!
    An English speaking staff met me as I entered this attraction. We went to a small office where she told me to leave my shoes and socks there. I used my own scarf to cover my head. We visited various areas of this temple, briefly washed our feet in the shallow pool, washed my hands, received holy water on my hand and was told to drink it. Also visited the prayer area of the temple as well as the Kitchen area where the meals are prepared. Learned that they serve 3 meals per day to people regardless of their religious affiliations. Took several pictures of this temple, both inside and outside. Really beautiful architecture! .

    Time out for a reset
    Took an hour out of the schedule to visit this temple. An oasis of tranquility, beautiful, heavenly. Welcomed by a guide who filled us in on tenets and history of Sikhism. The architecture is like a cool embrace in the hot New Delhi sun from a family member that welcomes you. We were shown the dining hall and the kitchens but it was at 6pm when the twice daily deep clean was underway. . I'll be back and will set aside many hours for that visit.

    Well worth a visit
    A friend took me here, and it was a very good experience. This is definitely a living temple, where devotees go to actively pray. It's quite a big temple ground, and you are allowed everywhere, as long as you are respectively dressed. Can be done in 30-45 minutes.

    Amazing Atmosphere
    What an amazing place to visit, just a very, very special atmosphere. Foreign tourists get to visit the temple itself as well as the kitchens where volunteers cook for thousands multiple times every day. Loved the colour and warmth of the temple and rhe welcome we got. Besutiful music, singing, decor and smiles. Loved every minute, a wonderful experience.

    Would highly reccomend everyone to go here
    I often visit the Gurudwara and highly recommend others to go and pray there. Since it is a holy place, I suggest praying for your and your family's health and well-being. Additionally, I request everyone to cover their heads with a scarf and wear long pants to show respect to the Gurudwara.

The place is surely nice and recommended. But what I find troublesome is the hostility displayed either by the guards or some self imposed guardians regarding taking photos outside the premises. Sure one respects the place and does not take photos inside the gurdwara. But if somebody wants to have couple of picture near the lake or a selfie with gurudwara as the backdrop, I think none should have a problem with it ! One is following all the rules, covering our heads, removing the shoes, respecting the place in general. On a special occasion I had gone with my gf and as a memoir was taking a selfie to be reminiscent of the day.. some uncle from behind started shouting you taking photos go and pay chalan ! Mind you it was outside the gurudwara building.. there should be some logic in not allowing.. there are already 1000s of picture on internet including filmed from dscr.. why those allowed then ??

We toured this temple on a particularly busy Sunday. It was quite crowded but on the oupside was truly amazing to see such generosity. This sikh temple serves hundreds of thousands of free meals every day. It doesn't matter what your background is, they serve everybody. We had a tour of the kitchen where volunteers are cooking vats of dal, rice, and chapati. I felt like I didn't have enough time here to see the beautiful holy pool and would like to learn more about this place. I would definitely go back. Good to know before you go: you must cover your head (scarfs provided) and walk barefoot inside (shoe storage is free).

Have visited Gurudwara Bangla Sahib in this covid situation with my mother. At the entrance body sanitization process you have to go through the gates who sprinkles sanitizer for safety. And important thing is as of now gurudwara is not providing any clothes for to cover your head so better to carry scarf or dupatta from your home else you can buy a piece of cloth from shops nearby gurudwara.

They are providing Halwa Prasad but langar is not active now. In the sitting area you have to follow social distancing , you can listen gurubani and spend time. It is a place where i feel that everything is good and peace. If you have been to amritsar Golden Temple gurudwara than you will feel it gives same impression.

This Sikh Temple dominates the local area and is a constant source of people streaming into the Temple & grounds. With heads covered we respectfully wandered through with the faithful.The sacred lake is for Sikhs only and was a focal point for their visit. With the Museum, feeding Hall & other points of interest , it is a great Delhi stop.

Very interesting and most liked place for me. When I am free I must visit this for internal peace. Also good place for family and friends also. First enter then submit you shoes and cover your head with cloth. After that buy prasad if you want and go inside for worship. You can stay there if you want to listen spiritual songs. After that came at pond you can take rest there with your family or friends. And enjoy the beautiful view.

After there is free langar(food) that is must because this is started first by guru nanak dev ji who said naam japo te wand chhako means make believe in God and eat food with sharing with all.

After there is a meausim you can take a tour of this.
You'll get headphones and when you go near any painting or anything there is information about that is automatically playing in your head phones.

At last there is a 3d show. There is no fee for all this things.you can spend whole day there.

This is amazing place. Must visit.

Our visit to the Gurudwara Bangla Sahib early in the morning was one of the highlights of our visit to Delhi. The atmosphere in and around the temple is calm and peaceful and the most beautiful singing and praying is piped around the complex. We removed our shoes and donned scarves to comply with the entry requirements and wandered around, exploring the temple, the sacred pond, the dining hall and the kitchens where the mammoth task of preparing meals for the thousands of visitors is conducted. I was given the opportunity to work with the volunteers preparing roti and it was a very special experience. The Sikhs are warm and welcoming and the memory of our visit holds a special place in my heart.

I know nothing of the Sikh faith but will now learn more. The guide helped me to put the headscarf on and then we quickly toured through. What a buzz ! Beautiful music, peaceful disciples, 25000 free meals prepared and served by volunteers daily.

This is an Sikh temple, pretty beautiful. You must to take your shoes off and keep your hair covered (men and women) to go inside. I really recommend you to wear your own scarf in your hair, but there are the shared ones too.
Tip: the place is amazing to watch the sunset!

RELIGIONS vary across the world, but when I went to what was one of Delhi's most prominent places of Sikh worship I really had to concentrate.
For a start, there were nearly 70,000 people in the site.
Secondly, while I was used to taking my shoes off to visit various sites across India, I had never been asked to take my socks off as well as covering my hair.
It was no big deal.....until I came to the large tray of water in which I was supposed to step to purify my feet.
I am well aware of the opposing significance of feet and head in different religions, but I am still Western and religion wasn't uppermost in my mind when I dutifully stepped into the water tray at the entrance.
Instead all I could focus on was how the water had been turned into a sort of soup by the passage of tens of thousands of feet before me. I hope Sikh people respect my concerns the same way I respected their religion.
Once through this mental obstacle I had a few other things to occupy my mind including how I could ever take my next step.
The place was absolutely rammed, packed with worshippers, many of whom took advantage of the incredible amount of free meals being benevolently dispensed at the kitchen area which did brisk business.
In some places it was so packed you were almost carried forward in a dense crowd of people keen to do everything from stroll round the central holy pond to buying religious souvenirs.
The smell of sweat and the press of bodies did create a feeling of claustrophobia at times, but I shook it off because I needed to keep track of my guide. There were so many people there that I lost him three times.
Finally I completed my visit and went and collected my socks and trainers only to meet an official interested in explaining Sikh religion to me.
I listened and even took away a leaflet which allows me to tell you that the word "Sikh" means "disciple", a person who believes in one god and the teachings of the Ten Gurus enshrined in the Guru Granth Sahib, the Sikh Holy Book.
We chatted for a while and then I followed my guide out of the site to reach a different state of mental enlightenment, one where I didn't feel as much of the overpowering presence of religious fervour as I had in the temple.
Definitely an experience I will not forget, but if you go to this temple be prepared for a demanding experience.
A side issue is that no photography is allowed in the main areas.

No one attempted to scam me here which was breathe of fresh air, very calm and peaceful. Floor was very hot midday, burned my feet but worth it. Strict rules, cover head using a scarf from the scarf bin, no hats or shorts. I did try to carry my shoes around because i was fearful after my Jama Masjid experience but a nice man politely told me to please use the communal space for shoes and i did at of respect.
