Why Gurudwara Bangla Sahib is Famous:
Gurudwara Bangla Sahib in Delhi is famous because it is a very important place for Sikhs. It was built a long time ago to remember Guru Har Krishan Sahib, who helped sick people during a disease outbreak. The gurudwara is very beautiful with its golden dome and intricate carvings. People also visit because there is a special pool of water believed to have healing powers. Additionally, free food is provided for all visitors. People from all over the world come to pray, find peace, and get blessings at Gurudwara Bangla Sahib.
Members also explored and enjoyed the Sikh Heritage Museum at Bangla Sahib. This museum is hosted by Bangla Sahib and named as Baba Baghel Singh Heritage Multimedia Museum. This museum was established by Vikramjit Singh Sahney and has been running since 2014. They also explored the 3D auditorium which included written records of Sikh history as well as paintings.
Expressing his thoughts on the visit, Shri Ashutosh Singh remarked, "Our visit to Gurudwara Bangla Sahib was a deeply humbling experience. The spiritual aura and the hospitality extended by the Sikh community left a lasting impression on all of us. We are grateful for the opportunity to seek blessings and experience the unity and inclusivity that epitomizes the Sikh faith."
The delegation extended their heartfelt gratitude to the management and volunteers of Gurudwara Bangla Sahib for their warm welcome and hospitality during the visit. The spiritual sojourn at the gurudwara served as a reminder of the shared values of compassion, service, and harmony that transcend cultural boundaries.
