Gurdwara Bangla Sahib

New Delhi, India

This is the most important and famous worship site in Delhi for the followers of Sikhism as it is associated with the Eighth Sikh Guru, Guru Har Krishan. Originally this structure was known as Jaisinghpura Palace as it was the Bungalow of Raja Jay Singh, a seventeenth century Indian ruler. The eighth guru of Sikhs, Guru Har Krishan stayed at this place in 1664. During his stay there was a Smallpox and Cholera epidemic in Delhi. It is said that the Guru helped the diseased by giving aid and fresh water from the well at this house thus curing and saving lives of many. Later the king Jay Singh constructed a small water tank over the well which is still present and its water is still believed to possess the healing properties. The Gurdwara and its Sarovar are now of great importance for Sikhs and many take water from here back home. The complex also houses an Art Gallery, a School and the concept of Langar is practiced where people of all religion can eat in the Gurdwara kitchen
