The Gurdwara Sangat Tola building is 300 years old and needed a great deal of restoration work. Baba Sukha Singh visited Bangladesh in March 2006 and met senior officials there concerning the works that were to be carried out. Granthi Singhs and Ragi Singhs were sent soon after to observe the Maryada in the Gurdwara. Baba Sukha Singh ji now regularly makes a trip here to oversee renovation and construction works.
