This is one of the most important festivals of Sikhs across the world as this marks the event when the tenth Guru of the Sikhs, Guru Gobind Singh ji passed on the guru-ship to the Guru Granth Sahib. After this, the holy book is considered to be the eternal guru or the guiding force of devotees. The event took place at Nanded on November 3, 1708, and hence a large number of Sikhs come here to commemorate this historical event. The festival includes many rituals like the Takht Snan, a cleaning ritual; Deep Mala, a ritual that includes lighting a series of lamps; a procession in which Guru Granth Sahib is carried in a palaki or palanquin; Kirtan darbars, programmes that include singing devotional songs and Kathas, reciting and sharing of devotional stories, among others. The experience of witnessing this festival is truly immersive and unique.
