Dawn – Baisakhi festival concludes

Taxila-Panjab-Pakistan, 16 April 2017. On the last day of Baisakhi festival on Saturday Gurdwara Punja Sahib echoed with the Sikh religious chants of Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh and Jo bolay so nihal.

The devotees also performed Kirtan, Sikh devotional music, which was followed by Ardaas (Dua) where they sought divine forgiveness of their sins.

At the end, parsad, a traditional sweet served at Sikh religious ceremonies, was distributed. Much jubilation and enthusiasm was seen on the last and concluding day as the Gurdwara was jam packed with Sikh yatris wearing colourful dresses.

Men with yellow turbans and women with colorful dresses were seen roaming inside and outside of the Gurdwara with much enjoyment seen on their faces.

After the concluding ceremony, around 1,500 Indian pilgrims left for Nankana Sahib through special trains.

They will also go to Gurdwara Sacha Sauda Farooqabad, Gurdwara Dera Sahib Lahore, Rohri Sahib Amanabad, Gurdwara Darbar Sahib Kartarpur at Narowal. They will leave for India on April 21.
