dershan deori harmandir sahib

The main entrance leading to the pathway to Harmandir Sahib is known as Darshani Deori. As soon as Guru Granth Sahib is taken for Sukh Asan (for Rest at Night) to Akal Takhat Sahib, the gates of Darshani Deori are closed from inside. The sewadar (attendants) on duty will allow only devotees with special permission from the Gurdwara authority for taking part in the night sewa (cleaning and washing of the sanctum sanctorum). Every morning devotees gather in front of the gate of Darshani Deori, recite the Shabads (hymns) till the gates are opened for the day. On one side of Darshani Deori there is a room meant for booking of Akhand Path, Ragis and on the other side is a room for keeping Palanquin.
This Deori was beautified with marble and fresco work during the time of Maharaja Ranjit Singh. The main doors of the Deori are decorated with silver sheets on one side and the other one with beautiful inlay work comprising ivory work.
