Astro Vaisakhi special for 2017

Every celebration calls for a family time. A time for friends and family to get together over special dinners. It is also a good time to catch some leisure TV because without fail, most TV channels would bring out shows relating to the celebration.

For Vaisakhi this year, Tara HD, the channel at satellite television provider Astro, has lined up two special programme for its Malaysian viewers.


Where there are Sikhs, you may most likely find a gurdwara. This has lead an Australian to Malaysian shores, on a special mission. He is on a journey to seek out Sikh contributions in Malaysia and has documented his research in a travelogue. The travelogue shares the history and background of 5 Gurdwaras to Visit in Klang Valley, its architecture design including the role of these gurdwaras to the Sikh community. Catch this Vasakhi Special on TARA HD (CH108) on 14 April at 4.30pm.
