Gurudwara Bangla Sahib

4am to 9pm
Kharak Singh Marg, New Delhi, Uttar Pradesh, 110001

The basics

The Gurudwara Bangla Sahib is a lively hub of Sikh worship and service every day of the week. An important part of the Sikh faith is the making and sharing of communal meals, and this centrally-located house of worship has a large kitchen that serves free meals to pilgrims. There’s also a small museum on-site. You can expect to hear peaceful devotional music and singing throughout the day.

The Gurudwara Bangla Sahib is conveniently located in central Delhi, just southwest of Connaught Place, so it easily fits into a sightseeing itinerary. Some travelers visit independently, or it can be added to private or group sightseeing tours that include other nearby sites, like the Jantar Mantar, Connaught Place, and India Gate.

Things to know before you go

  • Both men and women must cover their heads at Sikh gurudwaras. Handkerchiefs are provided for men. While traveling in India, women will find a lot of opportunities to wear a cotton or silk scarf, so don’t forget to pack some or buy them after you arrive.
  • You must leave shoes outside at the designated shelves, and wash your feet before entering the sacred area.
  • Visitors are welcome to join the Sikh pilgrims in a free vegetarian meal produced by the gurudwara’s kitchens. It’s a good way to learn more about Sikhism.

How to get there

The Gurudwara Bangla Sahib is in central New Delhi, and is easy to find using public transport. Taxis and autorickshaws are also easily found in Delhi, but frequent traffic jams can make this a slow way of getting around. The nearest metro station is Patel Chowk—on the yellow line that passes through the center of Connaught Place, and the main interchange station, Rajiv Chowk. The gurudwara is about a 10-minute walk west of Patel Chowk station, or a short autorickshaw drive.

Visit the Gurudwara Sis Ganj Sahib on Chandni Chowk

Visitors to Old Delhi may notice the Gurudwara Sis Ganj Sahib on Chandni Chowk. It contrasts with the Gurudwara Bangla Sahib in that it seems hemmed in by the other buildings on Chandni Chowk, and is made from a sandy brown stone. Inside, it is surprisingly spacious, although always busy, and is a peaceful place to take a break from the hustle of Chandni Chowk.
