HARMANDIR

Regarding the facilities for the stay of pilgrims, there is a dharmashala, containing 55 rooms, on the east of the temple and a big underground hall below the temple. The pilgrims do not have to pay anything for their stay to the Managing Committee that runs the temple. They can stay there for five days without any charge. After that, the permission of the Manager of the 'Managing Committee becomes essential. They also get their meal free of cost from the langar. But generally the pilgrims make voluntary donations to the temple. At meal-time they get chapaties, dal, vegetables, ghee and papad in meal utensils.

The local Hindu cleanses the utensils used by the pilgrims and Sikh ladies and they consider it to be their sacred duty and an act of service to the pilgrim guests. Daily about 300 pilgrims, including many local visitors, takes their meal both morning and evening time. On the occasion of the birth-day of the Guru about 5000 visitors take their meal here.

As regards the routine of the rituals, the birth-place of Guru Sahib is daily bathed at 3 a.m. by Ganga jal and Gulabjal and this is followed by the offerings of prasad arti with the reciting of hymns by the priests accompanied by the ringing of bells. In the evening, at 7 p.m., arti is also performed with the reciting of hymns by the priests.
