See Pics: Here’s How Bandi Chhor Diwas, Diwali Celebrated At Golden Temple

written by Karan Nanda | November 09, 2018 07:49am

Thousands of devotees flocked to the Golden Temple complex to mark the celebrations of 'Bandi Chhor Diwas' and Diwali on November 7. The complex, where the holiest of Sikh shrines, the 'Harmandar Sahib' is located, was illuminated with LED lights, giving it a glittering look.

The day is celebrated in the Sikh religion as 'Bandi Chhor Diwas' (prisoner liberation day). On this day, the sixth Sikh guru, Guru Hargobind, returned to Amritsar after being released along with 52 princes from imprisonment by the Mughal emperor Jahangir from Gwalior prison in 1619.

The guru and the princes arrived in Amritsar during the Diwali festivities. Since then, the ‘Bandi Chhor Diwas’ and Diwali celebrations coincide at the Golden Temple complex.

Devotees took to their Instagram account to share the pictures with their friends. Here are some of the pictures
