Rumalla is a Punjabi term for a square or rectangular piece of silk used to cover the Guru Granth Sahib in the Gurdwara (Sikh temple) when it is not being read. Rumallas are sometimes brought as gifts when people attend the services at the Sikh Gurdwara.
The Sikh Holy Scriptures are treated by the Sikhs like their living Gurus and as such no expense is spared in the furnishing for their current Guru, the Sri Guru Granth Sahib. The SGGS is first covered in white cotton sheeting and then by colourful and high decorated Silk rumallas. These, with the other items make the Guru Takhat dominate the main hall Darbar Sahib of any Gurdwara.
