In the heart of New Delhi, the important Sikh temple Gurudwaras Bangla Sahib is located. It is open both day and evening, and there are not that many tourists here. You cannot wear shoes, and both outside and inside the temple you have to wear a headscarf covering your hair. (This applies to both men and women). At the entrance there is a very efficient system/wardrobe, where you put your shoes and get back a wardrobe number. At the foot of the stairs to the temple, there is a low basin with holy water, where you have to wash your feet before entering. Inside the temple there is a chanting priest, who is surrounded by an audience, who sit quietly on the floor. Behind the priest people queue to offer sacrifices to the gods. Even though it is a sikh temple, it seems almost muslim in some ways.
