Gateway to Sikhism

Gurudwara Shaheed Bhai Dalip Singh at Chak Jhumra



This sacred shrine built in memory of Shaheed Bhai Dilip Singh is in Chak No 132 RB of district Faisalabad (Layyalpur). Chak Jhumra is its railway as well as Police Station. A paved path leads towards the village about 2km from road passing through the first railway crossing-while going from railway station to Faisalabad. The Jamia Mosque of the village is built within the courtyard of this Gurdwara and entrance for both the religious places is common. The mosque is also called gurdware wall maseet. The building has two halls with a verandah in front. The walls of Gurdwara are strong but the roof is collapsing and needs immediate repair.

The etymology of the term 'gurdwara' is from the words 'Gur (ਗੁਰ)' (a reference to the Sikh Gurus) and 'Dwara (ਦੁਆਰਾ)' (gateway in Gurmukhi), together meaning 'the gateway through which the Guru could be reached'. Thereafter, all Sikh places of worship came to be known as gurdwaras.
