India is known for its diversity of culture and traditions. Many different religions have found their place in India. Though there were times when it got complicated, but eventually all cultures came together.
Today, each and every person lives with his own traditions and lifestyle. And we don’t just admire our culture. In fact, many of us show interest in understanding other cultures also. This is the reason why people travel to different cities and visit different landmarks. One of the culturally famous cities is Delhi. Thousands of people live here and more than that come to visit the spiritual diversity of this place. Staying for a week or traveling through a private Delhi tour, the experience of this city never lets you down.
Two of the most amazing spots of the city are Gurudwara Bangla Sahib and Hazrat Nizamuddin Dargah. Two different places worshiping Gods in different forms. But both the places offer the same sense of spirituality and affection, for the divine. So, if you also desire to understand or experience these two different cultures, then pack your bags and hit the road.
Well, here is a slight glimpse of the places.
- Gurudwara Bangla Sahib
Holding Sikh values in the heart, people come to this temple to pay their love and affection for the Sikh Gurus. Among all the beautiful architecture of the temple, you won’t be able to miss the kindness of the people here. It seems like every single person come here to help others. It is their way of reaching out to their divine self. A place, which used to be a lavish bungalow of a Raja, was dedicated to the Guru Har Kishan Sahib.
It was the year 1664 when an epidemic was killing people. Then, Guru Har Kishan Sahib took a stand and helped all the poor in fighting the epidemic. Later, in 1783, the Palace of Raja Jai Singh was converted into the Gurudwara Bangla Sahib.
- Hazrat Nizamuddin Dargah
The second cultural place is the famous Hazrat Nizamuddin Dargah. Muslims from all over the country come to here to experience the Sufi atmosphere of the Mausoleum of Nizamuddin Auliya. Islam’s rich values and traditions can be witnessed here. The beauty of the architecture blends well with the people who kind of deposit their souls in front of the Allah.
Sufi saint Hazrat Nizamuddin was one of the most famous saints of Islamic culture. He helped the poor and educated society about the real Islamic values. The humbleness, giving nature, and living life through the teachings of Kuran, these were his teachings. Every year on his anniversary, a celebration is organized in the Dargah. Here in the Dargah, qawwalis are an artistic way of reaching out to the Saint and Allah.
If you visit both the places, you would find that both the cultures are same. They may seem a little different from the outside, but deep inside, they have the same morals and faiths.
So, don’t forget to add these two places in your Delhi day tour packages.
