Rush at gurdwaras as Punjab celebrates Gurpurab
Hundreds of devotees lined up at gurdwaras across Punjab and elsewhere in the country Wednesday to celebrate Gurpurab – the birth anniversary of Sikhism founder Guru Nanak Dev.
Tight security arrangements were in place outside famous gurdwaras in Amritsar, Anandpur Sahib, Talwandi Sabo and other places in Punjab.
There was heavy rush of devotees at the Harmandar Sahib, popularly known as the Golden Temple, in Amritsar as people arrived to offer prayers. Devotees had started coming to the holiest of Sikh shrines Tuesday night itself.
The whole Golden Temple complex has been illuminated for the past few days.
