Sikh Temple Tour
Soak Up the Spiritual Charm of the Sikh Religion
Founded by Guru Nanak, the history of Sikhism dates back around 550 years. Right from his childhood days, Nanak had a penchant for travelling, learning and preaching humanity. Sikhs constitute about 2% of India's population. Though Sikhs dominate the state of Punjab, they're spread throughout the length and breadth of India. The 5th largest religion in the world, Sikhism has more than 25 million followers worldwide. During your Sikh temple tour in India, you'll learn and experience all the important aspects of Sikh religion. You'll come to know about the ten Sikh gurus and see the Guru Granth Sahib (the religious book of Sikhs) with your own eyes.
Apart from the Golden Temple in Amritsar, there are multiple other Sikh temples or shrines in different parts of India. A Sikh temple is known as Gurdwara, a term first introduced by Guru Hargobind. The Guru Granth Sahib is placed (always on an elevated platform) in every Gurdwara. Three types of religious activities or rituals are performed in a public gurdwara – singing of hymns from the Guru Granth Sahib, reading of the Guru Granth Sahib and free community kitchen.
During your Sikh temple or gurdwara tour in India, you'll experience the spiritual charm of the Sikh religion and almost everything that makes this religion unique and worth-exploring. One specialty about the Sikh community kitchen is that it offers only vegetarian food so that no one gets offended and all people sit together and share a common meal, popularly known as 'langar'.
