The Delhi Sikh Gurudwara Management Committee runs a hospital in the basement of the Gurudwara building. Besides, the Khalsa Girls School is located in the adjoining building. A tank 225 x 235 ft with 18 ft wide Parikarma and 12 ft wide varandah along its three sides has been constructed entirely with people's contnbution and voluntary labour. I started taking tourists to this fascinating monument almost 28 years back and now it has bvecome a favourite destination for almost 80% of foreign tourists visiting Delhi. A wonderful place to learn about Sikhism and the wonderful philosophy of Guru nanak Devji.
