Gurdwaras - Wolverhampton
Amar Singh Ji started the "Parchar" - preaching
of the Sikh religion, singing of the holy hymns, baptising
devotees and starting educational institutions in various
parts of the world.
In 1972, upon the request of the devotees of
Dunstall Road, in U. K., a house was purchased to start a
Gurdwara. At that time nobody could ever dream of building
a new Gurdwara costing 1 million pounds sterling on that site.
The land next to this place was also purchased at quite a
hefty sum of money. Similarly the foundation stone of Nanaksar
Thath Isher Darbar, Wolverhampton, U.K. was laid on that very
site where Sant Baba Isher Singh Ji, Rara Sahib Wale held
their last gathering of their life. Earlier a hall in Wolverhampton
was booked for a "kirtan" session for a continuous
duration of 14 days by Sant Baba Isher Singh Ji. Sant Ji used
it for holding the "Diwan" for 13 days but on the
last day Sant Ji left for this world for their heavenly abode.
Baba Amar Singh Ji also booked the same hall for "kirtan"
gathering and finally purchased that place to build a Gurdwara
on that very site. Now there is a small library and a separate
hall for organising functions in the Gurdwara. "Gurmat",
religious classes, for the correct reading (pronunciation)
and understanding of the Guru Granth Sahib are held in the
Gurdwara. Various other religious activities are also arranged
and held in the Gurdwara for the benefit of the local children.
