Jaipur's City Palace Illuminated as Deputy CM Diya Kumari Honors Guru Gobind Singh with Sacred Sword Ceremony
Jaipur– In homage to Guru Gobind Singh, the 10th Guru of the Sikhs, Deputy Chief Minister Diya Kumari paid her respects on his birth anniversary at the Sarvtobhadra Chowk of City Palace. She laid floral tributes at the photograph of the revered Guru and conducted a special worship ceremony for his historical sword on this significant day.
Expressing admiration for Guru Gobind Singh's stories of sacrifice and bravery, Diya Kumari emphasized their timeless inspiration for generations to come. Following the homage, a moving 'Shabad Kirtan' was orchestrated, and the blessed 'Prasad' was shared among all attendees. Notable figures present included Rama Datt, the Executive Trustee of MSMS II Museum, and Ramu Ramdev, the OSD of City Palace responsible for Art & Culture.
To mark the occasion of Guru Gobind Singh's Prakash Parv, the historical sword is currently on public display at the Sarvtobhadra Chowk of City Palace, offering visitors, tourists, and the general public an opportunity for its divine 'darshan.'
The sword carries historical significance, as Guru Gobind Singh, during his stay in Nahan (Sirmour district, Himachal Pradesh), presented it to the ruling authority as a memento before departing. Rajmata Padmini Devi, hailing from Nahan, brought the sword to Jaipur several years ago. Since then, this revered artifact has found a sacred place within the palace, symbolizing a connection to the rich history and cultural heritage associated with Guru Gobind Singh.
