The gurudwara's gold-plated dome and white façade above Bangla Sahib Road is visible from different angles, standing tall and stately. Gurudwara Bangla Sahib is one of the extremely popular places of worship in Delhi
On holidays particularly, this place is bundled with people of all religions and supremacies. The Gurudwara Bangla Sahib was built on the site of a house where Guru Harikishen Dev, the 8th Guru of the Sikhs, stayed when he visited Delhi in 1664, on the royal call from Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb. The tank, which can still be seen in the temple compound, was apparently blessed by the Guru himself, which can cure people of small pox and cholera. Partisans of Sikh history can visit the Baba Baghel Singh Museum within the Gurudwara Bangla Sahib complex. It is also said that the 6th Guru, Sri Hargobind Sahib had stayed in this holy place after being released from the Gwalior Fort along with 52 kings.
