Gurudwara Hemkund Sahib is a well-known Sikh shrine, dedicated to Guru Gobind Singh, the tenth Sikh Guru. This gurudwara is located in the Himalayas at an altitude of 4329 m and is surrounded by seven snow-capped mountain peaks that are adorned by Nishan Sahib on the cliffs.
This gurudwara is the world's highest gurudwara and is visited by both Sikhs as well as Hindus. It is believed that at this particular spot Guru Gobind Singh meditated for a long time. According to Hindu mythology, Rishi Medhasa of the Markandeya Purana and Lord Ram's younger brother, Lakshman, performed penance at this site.
