Guru Nanak Jayanti celebrates the birthday of Nanak, the first Sikh Guru. It is also known as Guru Nanak’s Prakash Utsau.
While Guru Nanak Jayanti is a Sikh holiday, the festival is enjoyed by many demographic groups in India, including Hindus and secular people. Of course, it is a particularly major event in the Indian state of Punjab since Sikhs make up the majority of the population there.
Guru Nanak Jayanti is a time for happiness and fun, but the festival also brings attention to the teachings of Guru Nanak. This holiday starts on the full moon day during the month of Katak. Since lunar calendars fluctuate each year, It is celebrated during October or November on the Gregorian calendar.
