Places to see around Nanded Gurudwara
The Gurudwara that’s located inside the complex is known as Sach-Khand, which means ‘The Realm of Truth’.Its inner room is called the Angitha Sahib and is built over the location where Guru Gobind Singh was cremated in 1708. The Gurudwara was built by the order of Maharaja Ranjit Singh Ji. The present complex was constructed with artisans and labour sent all the way from Punjab during the early 1830s. The Takht houses both the Sri Guru Granth Sahib ji and the Sri Dasam Granth, the religious scriptures of Sikhism.
The Langar is a community kitchen that’s found in all Sikh Gurudwaras, where free meals are served to everyone, irrespective of religion, gender, caste or economic status. Langars were conceptualised and instituted by Guru Nanak DevJi. The food is served while seated on the floor, which emphasize the principle of equality. Preparing the food, serving it and cleaning up is called Seva, which translates to service that’s voluntary and selfless.
Located at Gobind Bagh, which is at a walking distance from the main complex, it’s one of the largest laser shows in Asia. This show beautifully illustrates the history and evolution of Sikhism and the lives of the ten Gurus with a flurry of colours, water and music. Even if the presentation is in Punjabi, the visuals will definitely help you understand the hallmarks of Sikhism. It’s a 40-minute show that’s totally worth your time.
