Guru Tegh Bahadur Memorial Delhi Address: Singhu, New Delhi, Delhi, 131028, India


Delhi is full of architectural glory and as you explore sightseeing places to visit in Delhi, you will come across many old monuments and modern structures. Guru Tegh Bahadur Memorial stands somewhere between old and new, as it immortalises Guru Tegh Bahadur’s martyrdom for the Hindus in India. He is the ninth Guru of the Sikhs and the memorial lends a view into his vision, life and teachings.

The compound was inaugurated in 2011 and the lush green gardens immediately attracted visitors. In the noise and activity of this populated city, it is difficult to find a quiet spot. Thus, between all the hustle and bustle of other tourist spots, you will surely enjoy a quiet moment here. It is conveniently located on NH1 on the GT Karnal Road and can be easily reached if you hire a taxi in Delhi.

Architecture of Guru Tegh Bahadur Memorial

The memorial is celebrated for its architecture, unique design and superior lighting. Constructed in a green and well-maintained area of approximately 11 acres, it has an exemplary design with a unique message.

The central obelisk that is 24 metres high represents the ninth Guru and his prominence while the three arches represent his three closest followers. The monoliths stand for the ten Sikh gurus with their teachings engraved on them.

The quotations on these monoliths present the primary beliefs of Sikh religion: meditating God’s name, earning righteously, sharing with others, worshipping the true God, following the teachings, respecting Khalsa’s decisions, welfare of all, being the warrior saint, obeying God’s will and equality of women. These major tenets of Sikhism are written in four languages of India that are, Hindi, Punjabi, Urdu and English.

The grand structure is immediately stunning and imposing, especially set against the peaceful background of open skies and green lawns.

History of Guru Tegh Bahadur Memorial

The memorial is built on the Singhu Border and was constructed by Delhi Tourism and Transportation Development Corporation. Built to honour the contribution of the Sikh community to India, the project costed around 25.75 crores and was inaugurated in June 2011 by Congress leader, Rahul Gandhi.

Things to Do at Guru Tegh Bahadur Memorial

The most exciting part of the memorial is its professionally designed Light and Sound Show. The theme is Panchtatva, the five elements, void, air, earth, water, and fire, and these elements become a depiction of the guru’s character. It claims to be North India’s largest installation artwork and has contributions from some of the biggest names in the entertainment industry.

The music has been composed by Ustad Amjad Ali Khan and Daler Mehndi has sung the first song while Om Puri and Kabir Bedi’s voices have been used for the voiceover. The show runs for 25 minutes in English, Hindi and Punjabi languages between 7:30 a.m. and 9:40 p.m. on all days of the week.

Apart from the Light and Sound show, one can have a fun picnic in the green lawns and visit the cafeteria for some delicious snacks. The amazing architecture offers some interesting opportunities for photography as well!

There are also arrangements in halls to conduct religious celebrations or birthday parties.
