Destination Anand Karaj

What to know before considering a destination Anand Karaj

Sikh migrants have always prioritised the setting up of the Gurdwara before even setting up their own homes. These overt symbols of identity stood boldly as a declaration, ‘we are here and we are proud of who we are.’ The need to use local community halls disappeared as the Sangat established itself with institutes and infrastructure to maintain the Satkaar of Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji and Sikh Maryada 1

Having said that, the rising social media trend of destination weddings has increased the chances of disrespecting Guru Guru Granth Sahib Jee (unintentionally obviously). Lavish palki sahibs make great photo opportunities, however, ensuring the utmost respect of our Guru should be our first priority.

We would advise seeking guidance from Panj Pyareh before considering a destination wedding. There is no better place than the court of the Guru to be blessed with an Anand Karaj.
