HYDERABAD: The three-day celebrations that marked the birthday celebrations or the 349th Prakash Utsav of the tenth and last Sikh guru, Sri Guru Gobind Singhji, founder of Khalsa Panth concluded on Sunday. The celebrations saw thousands of devotees celebrating it with religious fervour, gaiety and devotion by offering prayers at gurdwaras.

The major attraction of the event was organised under the aegis of Prabhandak Committee, Central Gurudwara Saheb Gowliguda, near Koti where devotees in large numbers participated in ‘Vishaal Deewan’ (mass congregation) by offering prayers to Sri Guru Granth Sahibji (holy scripture of Sikhs) at Gowliguda Gurudwara.

The day long congregation was marked by the recitations of Gurubani Keertans (holy hymns) by the renowned and reputed Ragi Jathas (Sikh preachers) who were specially invited from various parts of the country. They recited Gurubani Keertans stressed on imbibing the higher values of life and communal harmony for which Guru Gobind Singhji strived.

After the culmination of the congregation, the traditional Guru-ka-Langar (free community kitchen) was served to all the devotees where everyone sits in the same row with great discipline promoting the feelings of togetherness, fraternity and concern for fellow human beings.
