A huge shrine dedicated to Guru Gobind Singh ji, the tenth Guru of the Sikhs is built in Patna-the capital of Bihar. Patna Sahib is the birth place of the Guru who was borne on December 22, 1666. The holy place is also known by the name Harminder Takht and popularly called as Patna Sahib Gurudwara by the devotees.
It is one of the five ‘Takhts’ or seats of authority of the Sikhs. Guru Nanak dev ji also said to have visited this place. The Gurudwara was reconstructed from a Dharamshala built by the fervent devotee of Shri Guru Nanak Dev ji, Salis Rai Johri who transformed his lavish mansion into a hospice. Guru Tegh Bahadur is said to have stayed in this home.
The Gurudwara was constructed when a fire destroyed the lodge. Another reconstruction was done in the year 1954. A museum is also included in the Gurudwara that houses sacred books and writings of Sikh Gurus besides a few memorable things like sandals, arrows, and sword.
The whole atmosphere reflects the purity of God as the place is blessed with the benedictions of the Sikh gurus.
