RAMESWARAM: The Gurunanak Dham (gurudwara) at Rameswaram will be developed as one of the biggest gurudwaras of South India, according to Surjith Singh Barnala, Governor.

In an informal chat with the press persons after offering prayers at the Gurunanak Dham here on Monday, he said new facilities such as `keerthana' and `bhajan' halls would be constructed for the benefit of pilgrims. The construction would begin soon.

Sikhs were asked to donate liberally to develop the Gurunanak Dham, he said, adding that it would attract pilgrims from all over India. Earlier, along with his family members and the Collector, K. Sellamuthu, Mr. Barnala participated in a special puja performed at the Gurunanak Dham.

He spent more than 45 minutes at the gurudwara.

He also visited Sri Ramanathaswamy Temple and offered prayers.
