"Sisganj Gurdwara Sikh Temple" Chandni Chowk Tip by Willettsworld
Chandni Chowk, Delhi: 36 reviews and 91 photos
Located on the main Chandni Chowk road, just opposite Baptist Church, before Sunheri Masjid lies one of the sacred places of Sikhs in the capital, Gurdwara Sisganj. The gurdwara commemorates the site where on the orders of Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb, Guru Tegh Bahadur, the ninth guru of the Sikhs was beheaded. He was martyred here in 1675 under a banyan tree because he objected to the emperor's use of force against the Hindus, who refused to renounce their faith and religion.
Sikhism is a very open religion whereby all faiths are open to visit and even have a meal where the food is cooked in large kitchens by volunteers. You can see them cooking dahl in large vats, making chapati's and cooking them on large hot plates whilst you walk round. Its a great sight to see and smell!
Address: old delhi, opposite the red fort.
