Indonesia Sikhs organised a parade and a host of gurdwara programmes as they prepare to commemorate the 550th birthday of Guru Nanak’s next year.

There was a large turnout at the Sikh Parade today (1 Dec 2018) that began from Gurdwara Sahib Pasar Baru in Jakarta. It then passed Gang Kelinci, Pertokoan Pasar Baru Raya, Pasar Baru Selatan and Gurdwara Pasar Baru.

The Kuala Lumpur-based Sri Dasmesh Pipe Band and a number of Malaysian Sikh parcharaks have also been invited for the event.

Sikhs in neighbouring Malaysia and Singapore have also launched a series of events to commemorate the 550th birth of the founder of the Sikh faith.
