Gurudwaras in Delhi, Gurudwara Bangla Sahib is considered to be the most important due to its sacred nature. This place has a close relationship with the 8th Sikh Guru, Guru Har Kishan which is why Sikhs consider this place to be very pious. There is a holy lake inside this Gurudwara and it is known as Sarovar. Water from this lake is considered to contain remedial properties and devotees call it “Amrit”. During 1783, when this place was constructed under the supervision of Sardar Bhagel Singh, this resembled a very small temple. Mughal Emperor Alam Shah II was ruling the place then. This Gurudwara can be found at the famous shopping area of Connaught Place and is visible from a long distance due to its characteristic dome made of gold and a majestic flagpole known as Nishan Sahib.


Gurudwara Bangla Sahib was initially a bungalow that belonged to Raja Jai Singh during the 17th century. During those days, this Gurudwara was known as the Jaisinghpura Palace. However, during the setting up of the famous shopping complex, Connaught Place, this palace was destroyed. During 1664, the eighth Sikh guru, Guru Har Kishan stayed in this place while he was on a religious trip to various places. It was exactly during this time, that the place was affected by a severe bout of cholera and small pox. The Guru took water from the well in this bungalow and gave it to the patients. This was considered to have healing properties and gradually the Guru died due to sickness. After Guru’s death, the Raja built a tank on this and the water from this place is considered to be holy by all the Sikhs who visit here. During the birth anniversary of Guru Har Kishan, this place conducts a special congregation.
