Nagar kirtan taken out on Gurpurb eve

Amritsar,Punjab: Scores of Sikh devotees today took part in a nagar kirtan to mark the 347th birth anniversary of Guru Gobind Singh.

The procession started from Akal Takht at 12 noon and was led by the Panj Pyaras. Various Sikh groups, societies, students of schools and colleges, band parties, and gatka groups participated in it.

The nagar kirtan passed through Chowk Ghanta Ghar, Guru Bazaar, Chowk Baba Sahib, and Chowk Parag Das before culminating at Gurdwara Manji Sahib Diwan Hall.

Gurpurb will be celebrated with traditional fervour tomorrow. To mark the occasion, there will be a “jalau” (show of splendour) at the Golden Temple, Akal Takht and Gurdwara Baba Atal Rai Ji from 10 am to 12 noon tomorrow. The evening will witness “kirtan samagam” and spectacular fireworks.
