What is a Nagar Kirtan?

“Nagar Kirtan” literally means "Neighborhood Kirtan”. The word "Nagar" means "town or neighborhood," and "Kirtan" is a term describing the singing of Shabads (divine hymns). The term refers to the gathering of Sikh Sangat (Congregation) through the town singing holy hymns. The concept of a Nagar Kirtan is to bring the message of God to the doorstep of the community. It is very common for Nagar Kirtans to take place wherever Sikhs live. They especially common during the month of Vaisakhi and take place all over the globe.
