“Wonderfully Peaceful”
Reviewed July 18, 2013

This place of worship (Sikh gurudwara) is a peaceful place to be. The locals mind their own business and I, as a white, and female Canadian felt comfortable here as there were little to no awkward stares from the locals. I was able to wonder the gurudwara and take in the beauty of it and take any desired pictures.

“One of the must go's in Delhi”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

You can't be punjabi and not visit Bangla Sahib. It's a must go. And because every NRI must reach Delhi and visit Bangla Sahib (often on the way home from the airport) it's probably better organized than any other Gurudwara in Delhi...and that's a huge compliment.

Gurudwara Bangla Sahib is where the youngest Guru, Guru Harkrishan, died at the age of 7 after saving a number of devotees with small pox. It's open all night and you'll often find folks there at 0400 am coming to see the Guru Granth Sahib being brought out. So, its utterly safe..which is not a claim I'd make for the rest of Connaught Place.

It's got an underground parking below the Gurudwara and you'll find organised shops selling religious trinkets outside. You'll also find folks doing seva, including taking your shoes, serving and selling khara prashad (there's a brilliant token system on the side where you can donate money or buy as much khara prashad as you'd like) or offering Amrit (water) to pilgrims. It's not a difficult system to figure out if you take a moment to look around or if in doubt,I'd ask one of the folk doing seva at the shoe counter to explain things to me.

Within Darbar Sahib itself, you can put in a token amount, prostrate yourself before the Guru Granth Sahib,sit and listen to the raagis, make a donation at the back of the Gurudwara (they'll give you a receipt) after which you can walk out to get prashad, drink Amrit, take a dip in the holi pond and if you consider yourself a true Khalsa, bow your head to the Khalsa flag.

It's not as wonderfully spiritual an experience as going to the Golden Temple but it is far more accessible. I go whenever I can.

“beautifull place to visit”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

it is the famous gurudwarab situated in connaught place, new delhi. There is a pond inside its complex, known as the "Sarovar", whose water is considered holy by Sikhs and is known as "Amrit". I loved this pure place and it is the place for complete transformation of the soul.I had a quality time in gurudwara. Gurdwara Bangla Sahib was originally a bungalow belonging to Raja Jai Singh, an Indian ruler in the seventeenth century,
