Guru Gobind Singhs Birth Day

January

Amritsar, Punjab

The Golden Temple lights up like never before once a year on the birth anniversary of the last Sikh Guru, Guru Gobind Singh. Amidst the spectacular reflection of this architectural marvel in the black lake, a huge Nagar Kirtan (procession) begins to commemorate the teacher and offer prayers for prosperity.


The Golden Temple lights up like never before once a year on the birth anniversary of the last Sikh Guru, Guru Gobind Singh. Amidst the spectacular reflection of this architectural marvel in the black lake, a huge Nagar Kirtan (procession) begins to commemorate the teacher and offer prayers for prosperity. The air is filled with religious chants and bhajans harmoniously follow one another, as leaders direct the pageantry around Amritsar.

Cold drinks are offered to the participants during the Nagar Kirtan and at the end of this hip walk a scrumptious meal made up of local favourites is served. The celebration in Amritsar, the seat of the Golden Temple, outshines all others.
