Gurudwara Bangla Sahib
Gurudwara Bangla Sahib (About this soundlisten) is one of the most prominent Sikh gurdwara, or Sikh house of worship, in Delhi, India and known for its association with the eighth Sikh Guru, Guru Har Krishan, as well as the pool inside its complex, known as the “Sarovar.” It was first built as a small shrine by Sikh General Sardar Bhagel Singh in 1783, who supervised the construction of nine Sikh shrines in Delhi in the same year, during the reign of Mughal Emperor, Shah Alam II.
The Laxminarayan Temple, also known as the Birla Mandir is a Hindu temple up to large extent dedicated to Laxminarayan in Delhi, India. Laxminarayan usually refers to Vishnu, Preserver in the Trimurti, also known as Narayan, when he is with his consort Lakshmi. The temple, inaugurated by Mahatma Gandhi, was built by Jugal Kishore Birla from 1933 and 1939. The side temples are dedicated to Shiva, Krishna and Buddha.
It was the first large Hindu temple built in Delhi. The temple is spread over 7.5 acres, adorned with many shrines, fountains, and a large garden with Hindu and Nationalistic sculptures, and also houses Geeta Bhawan for discourses. The temple is one of the major attractions of Delhi and attracts thousands of devotees on the festivals of Janmashtami and Diwali.
Jama Masjid (جَامع مَسجد), also spelled Jame Mosque, Jami Masjid, Jameh Mosque, Jamia Masjid, or Jomeh Mosque, refers to the main mosque, of a town, city, area or village, which hosts the special Friday noon prayers and, in case there is no allocated open space (Musallah or Eidgah) available or nearby, the Eid prayers. These are sometimes called Congregational mosques or Friday mosques. The term “Jama Masjid” or “Jame Masjid” comes from Persian Masjed-e Jame (مسجد جامع), from Arabic: مَسْجِد جَامِع, translit. Masjid Jāmi‘, meaning “congregational mosque” (in Arabic, the term is simplified to “جَامِع Jāmi‘“). In non-Arab Muslim nations, the word jāmi‘ (“that which gathers, congregates or assembles”) is often, though erroneously, conflated with another word from the same root, jumu‘ah (Arabic: جُمُعَة “assembly, gathering”), a term which is used for the Friday noon prayers (Arabic: صَلَاة الْجُمُعَة, translit. Ṣalāṫ al-Jumu‘ah literally “prayer of assembly”) and the day itself (Arabic: يَوْم الْجُمُعَة, translit. Yawm al-Jumu‘ah literally “Day of Assembly”). This is due to the fact that the Friday prayers (or Jumu’ah prayers), which require congregations, are only held in congregational mosques, usually the main mosque or central mosque, and hence they are also sometimes known as Friday mosques.
