Gurpurab 2022 will be celeberated on 8 november 2022 .It is a Sikh religious festival. People living in Punjab and following the religion know that Gurpurab can mean any important event related to one of the ten Gurus and other important teachers whose teachings have been added to the Adi Granth, the holy book of the Sikhs.

However, to the general public, Gurpurab mostly refers to the birth anniversary of the founder of Sikhism, Guru Nanak Dev.

We will be talking about all the different Gurpurab or events (parv) of the teachers (gurus) that are observed by the Sikhs.

It is interesting to note that a majority of these events do not fall on the same date of the western calendar. These fall on the marked days of the months of the Nanakshahi calendar. We will explore all these, and more, below.

When exploring the different Sikh festivals, we can divide these into three major types. The first ones that are most commonly celebrated are the birthdays of the ten Gurus and the scriptures.

The next type covers the death anniversaries of the ten Gurus, also known as Jyoti Jot Divas. The last category of Gurupurabs celebrates the saints, poets and important personalities of the Sikh faith.
