Pounta Sahib

Situated on the banks of river Yamuna, Pounta Sahib Gurudwara was an intrinsic experience for me last month. I stayed inside for 2 days.....langar....kirtan....yamuna.....what else could i have wanted....

Nearby is the Kirpal Shila gurudwara where the rock on which Gurujee meditated around 300 yrs ago still is worshipped......a serene place......delicious langar and jaljeera!

Thanks to a friend, I just happened to discover Pounta Sahib and got a peek into more of my root culture-Sikhism.......Guru Gobind Singh jee used to have a KAVI DARBAR in the olden days....still held every full moon night.....

Back in Chandigarh today I just close my eyes and am transported back to Pounta Sahib!
