Pipali - A Village of Sikh Negi in Pauri, Uttarakhand

PIPALI- A village of Sikh Negi in Pauri

A small & beautiful village in Pauri Garhwal, Uttarakhand where villagers are are called Sikh Negi's who follow the Gurudwara founded by Guru Ramrai

Whenever I see the only photograph of my parents marriage. I wounder what kind of temple it was. Later when we visit our mamkot (mother village) I was surprised to see the Gurudwara in the village. One of my uncle was the only person in the village which used to do the ardas (prayers).

Pipali lies in Patti Malasyu, Pauri Garhwal, Uttarakhand

Pipali is one of the only three villages of SIKH NEGI's in Garhwal region other two being BIJOLI and HALUNI. Sikh Negi are the few rajputs who adopted sikh panth during Aurangjeb's rule for specfic reason and return to Hindu ritual after accomplishment of mission.
