From the Backcover of 'Sikh Shrines in Delhi' By Amrik Singh

Though Sikhs are mainly concentrated in Panjab after the Partition of India in 1947, Delhi has the distinction of having the largest population of Sikhs in any city—nearly one million. As the capital of India, Delhi has been associated with Sikhs since the inception of Sikhism. Five Sikh Gurus---Guru Nanak, Guru Hargobind, Guru Harkrishan, Guru Tegh Bahadur and Guru Gobind Singh---visited the city. A Sikh hero, Banda Singh Bahadur, was martyred in Delhi. Apart from Gurdwara Sis Ganj, where Guru Tegh Bahadur was executed under the orders of the contemporary Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb, and Gurdwara Rakabganj, where the Guru's body was cremated, there are various other historic gurdwaras in Delhi. Gurdwara Nanak Piao was built in memory of Guru Nanak's visit; Gurdwara Majnu ka Tila is associated with Guru Nanak and Guru Hargobind; Gurdwaras Bangla Sahib and Bala Sahib are associated with Guru Harkrishan; Gurdwaras Moti Bagh and Damdama Sahib with Guru Gobind Singh; Gurdwara Mata Sundri with Guru Go bind Singh' s wife, and a gurdwara in Mehrauli commemorates the martyrdom of Banda Singh Bahadur who liberated Panjab from the Mughals.

The Sikh community in Delhi is influential and plays an active role in the social, economic and political life of the city. The historic and other gurdwaras draw a large number of Sikhs from Delhi and other states everyday. Donations received from the devotees are used by the management committees of the gurdwaras to operate educational, medical and social institutes in the city---­realising the Sikh ideal of sarbat da bhala.
