On Tuesday, November 8, the Sikh community will observe Guru Nanak Jayanti 2022, one of their most important festivals. The annual event commemorates the birth anniversary of Baba Nanak, the founder of Sikhism and the first of ten Sikh Gurus.
The Sikh community holds him in high regard for his spiritual teachings and beliefs. As Gurpurab, the community commemorates the birth anniversary of their Gurus. As a result, Baba Nanak’s birthday is also known as Guru Nanak Gurpurab or, more rarely, Guru Nanak’s Prakash Utsav. According to the lunar calendar, the religious festival occurs on the fifteenth day of Kartik month.
In India, the regional holiday of Guru Nanak Gurpurab 2022 will be a Dry Day. This is good news for anyone planning a party with their loved ones.
