Guru Gobind Singh Jayanti

Guru Gobind Singh Jayanti, also known as Gurpurab, is a significant Sikh festival celebrated in India and other parts of the world. It commemorates the birth anniversary of Guru Gobind Singh Ji, the tenth Sikh Guru, who was a spiritual leader, warrior, and poet. The festival is observed on the full moon day of the month of Poh (usually falls in December or January) and is marked with religious processions, readings of the Guru Granth Sahib (the Sikh holy book), and gatherings at gurdwaras (Sikh temples) to offer prayers and seek blessings. It is a time for Sikhs to reflect on the teachings and contributions of Guru Gobind Singh Ji and to strengthen their faith and commitment to Sikh principles.
