FIVE TAKHATS OF KHALSA
Takht Sri Harmandar Ji, Patna Sahib

 

Takht Sri Harmandar Ji, Patna Sahib enjoys the privilege of being the birthplace of the Tenth Guru Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji. This sacred place has the honour of being visited by the first Guru Sri Guru Nanak Dev ji and the ninth Guru Sri Guru Tegh Bahadur ji. It is from this place that the commandment of valiance and fearlessness was issued to the Sikh fraternity. The ninth Guru waxed eloquent about this to justify ways of God to men. "This is why I was born and set Patna Sahib as my place of work". This very line indicates that Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji was born at this sacred place. After bidding an adieu to his promising childhood at Sri Patna Sahib, Guru Sahib stepped into the holy land of Sri Anandpur Sahib.

Patna Sahib is regarded as the centre for propagating Sikhism in the east. At one time, it was called Patliputra.

As history would have it, Takht Sri Patna Sahib is the second accepted and acknowledged Takht of the Sikhs.

It was 'Sher-e-Punjab' Maharaja Ranjit Singh who, first of all, undertook the task of raising a monumental Sikh Temple at this place. As a result of an earthquake, the celestial edifice came to be a heap of dust. With the co-operation of the Sikh masses, the golden fabric, as it stands today, has come into its own.

Worthy of visit and homage are historical Gurdwara Gobind Bagh, Gurdwara Bal Lila, Maini Sangat, Khuh Mata Gujri Ji, Gurdwara Handi Sahib, Gurdwara Gau Ghat etc.
