Sikh Shrines in Delhi
Though Sikhs are mainly concentrated in Panjab after the Partition of India in 1947, Delhi has the distinction of having the largest population of Sikhs in any city – nearly one million. The Sikh community in Delhi is influential and plays an active role in the social, economic and political life of the city. The historic and other gurdwaras draw a large number of Sikhs from Delhi and other states everyday. Donations received from the devotees are used by the management committees of the gurdwaras to operate educational, medical and social institutes in the city – realizing the Sikh ideal of Sarbat Da Bhala. This book has provided the pictures of historical Sikh gurdwaras in Delhi.
