Gurudwara Bangla Sahib

This is a gurudwara which is located in the heart of Cannaught Place of New Delhi. This got its name from the fact that it was actually the bungalow which belonged to Mirza Raja Jai Singh, an able leader of Emperor Aurangzeb. The palace was then known as Jaisinghpura Palace. After the death of Guru Har Rai, Ram Rai and his followers urged Emperor Aurangzeb to summon Guru Harkruishan, the elder brother of Guru Har Rai so that they could conspire against him and lower his prestige and then he could declare himself as the true successor of Guru Har Rai. In the meanwhile, the devotees of Guru Har Rai went to Mirza and requested him to take the responsibility of protecting Guru Harkrishan during his visit to this place. The Mirza being a strong follower of the Sikh Gurus agreed and protected Guru Harkrishan till the end and later decided to give away his own bungalow as an honorary in the name of the Sikhs.

How to reach Bangala Sahib Gurudwara: Rajiv Chowk is the nearest metro station. Come out towards Janpath Exit Gate. From here Bangla Sahib would be 15 minutes’ walk.After having tasty Prasad at the Gurudwara I headed to the Agrasen Ki Baoli, one of my favorite place in Delhi. An Old and Historical monument with 108 Steps. There are graffiti on the walls outside the Baoli. I don’t know why I have so much of love for this place. I always suggest people to go there.
