The premises of the temple contain, besides the shrine, the dharmashala, and the langar where the visitors could take their meal free of cost.

On the occasion of the birth-day of Guru Govind Singh a big procession is organized. This is attended by more than 2,000 Sikh pilgrims from different-parts of the country and abroad. Hindus of Patna freely join the procession. The procession starts from Gaighat, near the Gulzarbagh Government Printing Press and terminates at Harmandir Gali. Gaighat, it is said, was the first camp of Guru Teg Bahadur, the father of Guru Govind Singh. Here also there is a Gurudwara.

The Granth Sahib is placed in the all-gold palki on the huge truck. The truck carrying the Granth Sahib leads the procession followed by thousands of the devotees and visitors. The followers of Sikh religion sing the prayers of the Guru and recite the lines composed by Guru Govind Singh. There is jubilation all over with music and songs.

The pilgrims visiting the temple have to follow the rules of entering a Sikh temple and the head has to be covered and shoes have to be left out. They offer their respect to the Granth Sahib or Bara Sahib and offer ardas or Kara Prasad. This prasad is prepared in a special shop of the temple. No prasad is allowed to be offered from any other shop. Every day about 1000 visitors, including Sikhs and Hindus, come to pay their respect to the temple and get prasad (halwa) from the priest.
