Guru Purab

Guru purab, also known as Jyototsava, is one of the sacred festival of the Sikhs. In a year, 10 guru purabs are celebrated. Each one of it is considered to be auspicious, but special importance is given to the birth anniversary of Guru Nanak who was believed to have brought enlightenment to the world. Therefore, this festival is also known as the festival of light.
