Bus service to connect Sikh Takhts soon

Amritsar, Punjab: The SGPC has decided to run semi-deluxe buses connecting all three Takhts in Punjab for the benefit of Sikh pilgrims.

This decision was taken at the SGPC executive meeting at Gurdwara Sri Degsar Sahib, Katana, today. Avtar Singh Makkar, SGPC president, said they would run 10 semi-deluxe buses connecting Sri Akal Takht, Amritsar, Takht Sri Kesgarh Sahib, Anandpur Sahib, Takht Sri Damdama Sahib, Talwandi Sabo, and other historic gurdwaras in the region.

He said eight of these buses would connect historic Sikh shrines in Punjab and the remaining two historic gurdwaras in neighbouring Haryana.

He said the SGPC planned to purchase two buses for “mobile exhibition” of books on Sikh history and to inscribe history of important gurdwaras on steel boards.

The meeting, he said, decided to change the flooring of the Golden Temple ‘parkarma’ and provide the facility of booking rooms for Guru Gobind Singh NRI Niwas and Saragarhi Niwas online.
