Ipoh saw a nagar kirtan (procession accompanied by singing of Sikh hymns) to celebrate the birth of Guru Nanak, the founder of the Sikh faith.

Hundreds of Sikhs joined the procession, organised by the Wadda Gurdwara Sahib Ipoh (WGSI) yesterday (24 Nov 2015).

This was the second nagar kirtan to celebrate Guru Nanak’s birthday, the first being in 2014.

“The said procession was a big hit and awesome with beautiful weather (which was a blessing),” said WGSI president Amarjit Singh Gill in a Facebook update.

Among those who took part in the procession were the Sri Dasmesh Pipe Band,  a group of dhol drummers and Jelapang naujawans.
