Professor Robin Mason, Pro-Vice-Chancellor (International) at the university, said: "We are delighted to be working with GNNSJ
and other Sikh and community organisations to host the auspicious 550th anniversary celebrations at the heart of our campus in honour of the founder of the Sikh faith.
Sinha, paid tribute to the historic Kar Sewa projects carried out by GNNSJ in India, including the heritage conservation and beautification of the birthplace of Guru Gobind Singh Ji, Takhat Sri Harmandir Ji, Patna Sahib, and added, "It was a great honour and privilege for my wife and I to pray and pay respects here."
Puri is planning a mobile exhibition, in conjunction with GNNSJ, celebrating the life and legacy of the great Guru Ji to launch in Birmingham during November.
This is the Gurdwara built by Guru Nanak Niskham Sevak Jatha (GNNSJ
), a Birmingham-based Sikh charity founded on the principles of selfless service.
It was built and managed by a charity called Guru Nanak Nishkam Sewak Jatha (GNNSJ), which means 'the selfless service of the community in the name of Guru Nanak', who founded the Sikh faith.
Bhai Sahib Ji, as he is known, is the chairman of GNNSJ and an engineer by training who, without pay, contributed his design, technical and management skills in creating the stunning gurudwara.
With Norang Singh Ji's initiative and Baba Ji's blessings, GNNSJ was formed.
