I really enjoyed this very special experience, a tour of this wonderful Sikh Temple.
We had a very memorable hour or so here and we're privileged to see a prayer service in progress with beautiful singing, chanting and music. The place was a whirl of colour and palpable goodwill and energy. I just found the while experience very moving, especially due to the welcome we received.
The kitchens were amazing watching the volunteers roasting chapatti and rolling dough to make bread, huge lentil soup pots on the boil, vast swathes of vegetables being prepared...all to serve three free meals a day to a cast of thousands.
Amazing place, absolutely loved it.

This is a surprisingly small shrine, at least compared with shrines, mosques, and cathedrals around the world

It was first constructed in 1783 as a small shrine to commemorate the martyrdom by beheading, of the ninth Sikh Guru.

This is a very colourful and religeous site. While we were there there were ceremoniew being conducted. All extremely interesting

Beside the shrine is a largish area devoted by the Sikhs to preparing and serving food to anyone wanting to sit and have a meal.

Very interesting and really a must see if in the area.

As a note: shoes must be removed for entry into the Gurudwara Sis Ganj Sahib

I made a call to them a week before of my visit there and I was quite assured by them about providing a room and they asked me to call and confirm a day before my visit. I again called a day before my visit they assured me. But when I reached there with my family they refused to give any room to me. The attendant who allots room was very ill mannered. He said me to wait for a room till 10:00 pm but without any certainty of room. He was behaving very badly with other visitors who were without any access and asking for room. When I contacted his higher authorities they were also have same attitude. This is a very pious and sacred place and it belongs to Sri Guru Teg Bahadur Ji. I think only those people should be recruited as staff here who actually follow the teachings of Shri Guru Granth Sahib Ji. I live in Punjab and I have visited so many Sikh Temples in my life but never found any discrimination, but here I felt much partial behavior and discrimination. The staff members encouraging VIP culture here. I recommend all public to visit the place with higher devotional feelings. It is very sacred temple. But you should not plan about to stay here if you don't have any access.

Takes some effort to wade through the sea of people, vehicles and chaotic roads leading to the Gurudwara but the Gurudwara itself and the nearby Sikh Museum is something which Sikhs should try and visit.

Gurdwara Sis Ganj Sahib, a significant Sikh places of worship in Delhi, was constructed in the late eighteenth century to commemorate the martyrdom of the ninth Sikh Guru, Guru Tegh Bahadur.

Located in Chandni Chowk, in Old Delhi, the shrine place is cocooned within extremely contrasting surroundings, ranging from unmade and heavily pitted roads, wantonly-abandoned litter, teeming crowds and majesty of Red Fort in the distance. It is easier to climb to Base Camp on Khumbu Glacier (on Mount Everest) than attempting to get to the Gurdwara by car. Travel by auto rickshaw or Delhi Metro are the most time efficient ways of making the journey without losing one's sanity.

Once inside the building, the seamless machinery of volunteering and selfless service takes over. The visitors'/worshipers' anxieties are melted into nothingness as they ascend the steps into the Gurdwara proper. The first thing a person experiences upon entry is the sound of devotional songs (Keertan) sung by a trio.

The interior is impressively decked out in colourful flowers and bunting. The central piece, as one would expect, is Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji (the Sikh Scripture) at the top end of the hall. Placed on a raised golden dais, worshipers bow to it in great reverence before joining members of the congregation already seated on the carpeted area facing The Scripture.

One derives individual and personal input from such a place. Whether it is in the form of offering a prayer, making a spiritual contact with The Almighty, making a wish or donation, or anything that falls in-between. The experience knows no boundaries as it helps people to transcend the superficial man-made bureaucracies into a sense of ethereal fulfillment. A person does not have to be religious or a follower of the Sikh faith to live through a period of serene contemplation.

The concept of the communal kitchen and Vand Shako - share and eat - is central to the Sikh religion. Every Gurdwara serves food, free of any charge, to visitors and regulars alike.

If they wish, visitors may take 'Parshad' (sacred pudding) on their way out.

For me, my visit to Gurdwara Sis Ganj Sahib put a great deal into perspective. Just as a candle cannot burn without oxygen, man cannot live without a belief.
