The Gurudwara Bangla Sahib is one of the most popular and important Sikh shrines in Delhi. Located in the heart of the city, near Connaught Place, this gurudwara was originally a bungalow owned by Raja Jai Sing, a ruler in the seventeenth century. This building was later pulled down to construct Connaught Place, a brand new shopping area on New Delhi. Guru Har Krishan, a prominent Sikh guru also lived here and served many people during his lifetime. Today the Gurudwara Bangla Sahib is an import place of worship for Sikh, where special gatherings and prayers are held on the birth anniversary of Guru Har Krishan.

The Gurudwara premises include the main prayer hall (containing the Granth Sahib, the holy book of the Sikhs), a tank in the middle, a library which contains books on Sikhism, a hospital, a school and an art gallery. Like with all gurudwaras, langar is served in the Bangla Sahib where everyone irrespective of religion, caste, gender, caste or creed is welcome to share a meal.

Visitors to the Bangla Sahib are required to dress modestly and to keep their heads covered at all times when inside the gurudwara. Visitors and worshippers are required to remove their shoes before entering the gurudwara.
