CHANDIGARH: Devo­tees vis­ited gur­d­waras across the tric­ity to cel­e­brate gur­purb that marked the birth an­niver­sary of the first Sikh Guru and the founder of Sikhism, Guru Nanak Dev, on Wed­nes­day. The wor­shipers made a bee­line for gur­d­waras, while ‘ ak­hand paths’ and com­mu­nity kitchens were held on the premises of var­i­ous gur­d­waras.

Gur­preet Singh, a res­i­dent of Sec­tor 34, said, “We are here since 7.30am as we knew that the rush will in­crease later dur­ing the day.” A huge num­ber of devo­tees did “sewa” dur­ing the “lan­gar”. The vis­i­tors were ad­dressed to fol­low the teach­ings of Guru Nanak through “Ak­hand paths”. Gur­d­waras were il­lu­mi­nated with lights to mark the oc­ca­sion.
