    A must visit to feel centred and balanced and contemplate about the mysteries of life
    In the hustle bustle of a hyper active noisy city, Gurudwara Sri Bangla Sahib is an island of Bliss, Peace & Abundant Serenity. The soulful devotional music transports one to another land and just sitting in the inner hall, where the Guru Granth Saheb resides brings so much of contentment and peace of mind that is hard to describe. Bangla means residence . The eighth Guru Harkrishan Ji 🙏🙏 was the guest of Raja Jaisingh and stayed in his residence which later got converted into a Gurudwara. Guru Saheb’s benevolence and love helped cure small pox in Delhi as people sprinkled the water on their bodies from the tank, where Guru Saheb had dipped his feet 😍😍😍😍 A must visit to feel centred and balanced and contemplate about the mysteries of life

    Gurudwara Bangla Sahib, New Delhi: Serenity Amidst Cleanliness
    My visit to Gurudwara Bangla Sahib was a truly serene experience. As I entered this revered Sikh house of worship, a sense of calm enveloped me. The Gurudwara's immaculate cleanliness stood out prominently, reflecting the devotion to maintaining a pristine environment for all visitors. The peaceful ambience was palpable, offering a tranquil refuge amidst the hustle and bustle of New Delhi. The spiritual aura and the soothing sounds of hymns created an atmosphere conducive to introspection and solace. Beyond being a place of religious significance, Gurudwara Bangla Sahib stood as a testament to hospitality, serving free meals to all, irrespective of faith or background, through its langar, a communal kitchen. Overall, Gurudwara Bangla Sahib is not just a place of worship; it's a haven of cleanliness, peace, and inclusivity—a must-visit for those seeking spiritual tranquility in the heart of New Delhi.

    Packed but really nice
    Nice because it's a bit different. you'll have to wear a bandana if you want to get in. There are free ones people can wear then leave for other people to wear...so maybe it's best of you get a cheap one from the market. No photos allowed inside. Nice inside and outside.

    Excellent experience
    This was my first time visiting a Gurudwara and it was definitely a memorable experience. Seeing behind the scenes of the community kitchen was incredible, there is such a strong sense of community in all of the volunteers who cook for people from all backgrounds. This shoukd be on your list of things to see in New Delhi.

    Beautiful and Giving
    In order to enter this temple, you need to take your shoes and socks off and walk through a little water to cleanse your feet. Men and women also have to wear a head scarf which they provide if you need one. The temple is very beautiful with lush carpets and a huge chandelier. The holy book is taken out during the day and put away in its bedroom in the evening. They have a dining room where people sit in rows and eat for free. The volunteers come around and replenish food as people need it. The kitchen is immense with industrial size machines. There is a group of ladies making bread. They feed thousands of people throughout the day. You can walk to the pool area but you are not allowed to take photos there. Remember to keep your scarf on until you put on your shoes and leave the premises.

    Felt very welcome here!
    An English speaking staff met me as I entered this attraction. We went to a small office where she told me to leave my shoes and socks there. I used my own scarf to cover my head. We visited various areas of this temple, briefly washed our feet in the shallow pool, washed my hands, received holy water on my hand and was told to drink it. Also visited the prayer area of the temple as well as the Kitchen area where the meals are prepared. Learned that they serve 3 meals per day to people regardless of their religious affiliations. Took several pictures of this temple, both inside and outside. Really beautiful architecture! .

    Time out for a reset
    Took an hour out of the schedule to visit this temple. An oasis of tranquility, beautiful, heavenly. Welcomed by a guide who filled us in on tenets and history of Sikhism. The architecture is like a cool embrace in the hot New Delhi sun from a family member that welcomes you. We were shown the dining hall and the kitchens but it was at 6pm when the twice daily deep clean was underway. . I'll be back and will set aside many hours for that visit.

Group of 7 friends/couples. It is an excellent location to see in the evening when other sites are closed. You will take your shoes off & need a head covering to enter In respect for the Seik beliefs. I recommend going past the main entry area to the international traveler area. There are toilets, lockers, literature, & a Seik volunteer who shares information, history, and knowledge about the “temple”, beliefs, & practices. It closes at 9pm but the Sahib is open 24 hours. Please be respectful DO NOT BRING ANY MEAT PRODUCTS TO THE TEMPLE and don’t just go to take pictures, if the security feels you are being disrespectful you will be escorted out!

I loved visiting here. Food was excellent and everyone was very friendly. We got to tour the kitchen and that was amazing to see the amount of work they do to feed the community.
