History of Bangla Sahib

 

Gurdwara Bangla Sahib was originally a bungalow belonging to Raja Jai Singh, an Indian ruler in the seventeenth century, and was known as Jaisinghpura Palace.


The eighth Sikh Guru, Guru Har Krishan resided here during his stay in Delhi in 1664. During that time, there was a smallpox and cholera epidemic, and Guru Har Krishan helped the suffering by giving aid and fresh water from the well at this house. Soon he too contracted the illness and eventually died on March 30, 1664. A small tank was later constructed by Raja Jai Singh over the well, its water is now revered as having healing properties and is taken by Sikhs throughout the world back to their homes.

 

There is an art museum within the premises of Gurdwara Bangla Sahib which houses interesting slices of Sikh history from old manuscripts of Sukhmani Sahib and Japji Sahib to a handwritten Mool Mantar by Guru Arjan Dev ji. There is also a miniature bir of Guru Granth Sahib. There are colourful canvases giving account of lives of Sikh gurus. Coins of earlier centuries and legendary scenes from the battlefields come alive on the walls of this museum. There is also a library within walking distance covering vast texts on Sikh religion and history.
