This sanctified place is known to be honored of getting stopover by the first Guru of Sikhs- Sri Guru Nanak Dev ji and also the ninth Guru -Sri Guru Tegh Bahadur ji.

It was this place from where the commencement of ‘no fear’ and ‘valiance’ was preached to the Sikhs. The ninth Guru efficiently justified these ways of God to men. His saying “This is why I was born and set Patna Sahib as my place of work”, is still remembered and praised by the entire Sikh fraternity. This holy place was where Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji was born. After spending his promising childhood at the sacred place of Sri Patna Sahib, Guru Sahib stepped out of here to reach the holy place of Sri Anandpur Sahib.

Patna Sahib is considered as the epicenter for propagation of Sikhism in the east.
As historical evidences say, Takht Sri Patna Sahib is the second acknowledged and accredited Takht of the Sikhs. There was a time, when it was known as Patliputra. We were looking around the place and were admiring the affluent history associated with it. We further came to know that the task of establishing a colossal Sikh Temple at this place was taken up by ‘Sher-e-Punjab’ Maharaja Ranjit .

However, due to an earthquake, the edifice of the monument was turned to a heap of ruins. It was the co-operation and efforts of the Sikh fraternity that the golden fabric is proudly stood on its own, till today. We also visited the enormous garden which is known as “Gurudwara Guru Ka Bagh”. The garden was beautifully managed with the ‘Sarowar’ and striking Gurudwara. It was this memorable place where Guru Tegh Bahadur met his beloved son for the very first time. We sat in the garden for long and paid homage in the Gurudwara.
