     The Guru Nanak Jayanti or we can say Guru Nanak Gurpurab is celebrated all over the world . This day is considered to be very religious and auspicious for the people. A 2 days long Akhand Paath - reading entire Guru Granth Sahib takes place before Gurpurab. A day before early morning processions called ‘prabhat pheri’ take place.  

The Nishan Sahib, a holy triangular flag bearing the symbol of Khalsa Panth is waved during these processions. As you can observe you can see Nishan Sahib hoisted on domes of Gurudwaras.

On the Guru Nanak Jayanti, bhajans are chanted and langar, food cooked in common kitchen and is served in Gurdwaras to all the visitors. To honour this great Guru, we write about the best Gurudwaras in India. 

The Golden Temple, Amritsar, Punjab. Sri Harmandir Sahib or Sri Darbar Sahib is famous in world for its striking appearance in gold. Visited all year round, the Gurudwara is a peaceful place for all worshipers. Golden Temple’s stunning architecture and grandeur certainly puts it on every traveler’s speech less.
