Did you know Which King’s bungalow was there at the place of Gurudwara Bangla Sahib? – Sikh Gurus
Mirza Raja Jai Singh, although a Mughal vassal, was a staunch Hindu and an admirer of the Sikh Gurus. During his stay at Delhi, he was used by Aurangzeb as an intermediary to summon to the Court first Guru Har Rai in 1661 and later Guru Har Krishan in 1664. Guru Har Rai did not go to Delhi himself, and sent his son Ram Rai instead. Guru Har Krishan, who in compliance with the Emperor’s wishes, visited Delhi in March 1664, put up in Raja Jai Singh’s bungalow which is now the site of Gurdwara Bangla Sahib in New Delhi. The Guru passed away to his heavenly abode on 16 April 1664 at the residence of Raja Jai Singh.
