Happy Guru Nanak Jayanti: Golden TempleTwitter

The 546th birth anniversary of the first Sikh guru, Guru Nanak, falls on 25 November this year.

Sikhs from across the world offer prayers at gurudwaras to celebrate the auspicious day.

The festivities in the Sikh religion revolve around the anniversaries of the 10 Sikh Gurus. Their birthdays, known as Gurpurab (or Gurpurb), are occasions for celebration and prayer among the Sikhs.

The celebrations start with Prabhat Pheris, which are the early morning processions that start from the gurudwaras and devotees will go to nearby localities and chant hymns.

The festivity is generally similar for all Gurpurabs; only the hymns are different.

In gurudwaras, Akhand Path, a forty-eight-hour continuous reading of the Guru Granth Sahib, is also held two days before the festival.

To celebrate Guru Nanak Jayanti with fans and followers, celebrities have wished them on social media.
