Neighborhood: Central Delhi
Overview

This gurudwara (temple) stands where once there was a neighborhood of stirrup-makers. It was built in 1732 by Lakkhi Banjara, the man who performed the last rites of the martyred Sikh Guru, Guru Tegh Bahadur. The style is characteristic of Sikh gurudwaras. With typical arrogance, the team of Edwin Lutyens, the famous architect of Delhi, could only describe the building as 'a Sikh shrine impossible to remove.' It is visited by thousands of devotees everyday.
