Takht Sri Patna Sahib Overview

Ranked 2 of 40 sightseeing in Patna

Takht Sri Patna Sahib, commonly known as Gurudwara Patna Sahib, is a gurudwara built in the fond memory of Guru Gobind Singh, who was born at this very place. Guru Gobind Singh was born on 22nd December, 1666 and was the tenth Guru of Sikhism. Situated at the banks of the holy Ganga River, Gurudwara Patna Sahib was constructed by the first Maharaja of the Sikh Empire, Maharaja Ranjit Singh during his reign from 1780 to 1839.

This place is considered as one of the only five sacred thrones or Takhts among Sikhs. Guru Tegh Bahadur stayed at this place along with his wife, after travelling from cities like Kaithal, Kurukshetra, Delhi, Agra, Etawah, Kanpur, Allahabad, Banaras, Sasaram and Gaya. When Guru Tegh Bahadur and his wife came to Patna, they stayed at Jaitamal's house.

Later Ghanshyam, the great grandson of Adhraka, brought them to Salis Rai Johri's Sangat, which is now commonly called as Takht Sri Harmandirji or the birth place of Sri Guru Gobind Singh. The tenth Guru has also praised a lot about this place in his autobiography called Bachitra Natak.

This gurudwara Patna Sahib is considered as the epicentre for Sikhism in eastern India. It is home to many of the belongings of the 10th Guru of Sikhism. Many of them include a cradle, also known as the Pangura, which has four gold plated stands and is said to be the sleeping cradle of the tenth Guru himself during his infancy. Further, there are four iron arrows, a sacred sword of the Guru, a pair of sandals kept in this temple.

Patna Sahib - Monument for Sikhs

Very nice place. Now it has been renovated. Very important place for Sikhs. Hindus can also go there. It is the place of 10th Sikh Guru Gobind Singhji. To reach there you have to go by road or train. By road it is very crowded and you to go through narrow lanes.

Birth place of Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji

"Takht Sri Patna Sahib" its the birth place of 10th(dashwe) guru of Sikhs Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji. It is a must to visit place when you are in Patna. It is located in Old Patna City, so roads are narrow and buildings are old. It is situated near Ganga river.Activities on site:When you are at this holy place do have the food of langer.Advice to travellers:If you are planning to visit this place, please come early morning because roads are quite narrow and you might have to face long traffic.Things you must carry:When you are in a Guru Dwara you must cover your head, so please bring some cloth for that(you can also buy it from there too).

Best holy place

This is one of the best holy place where I found so much religious relief. I feel relaxed there so much. I went there with my parents and some friends. We visited that place just for fun but we found their soul and divine of truth. I want to visit again there.

One of the most beautiful gurudwara in India

If you happen to be in Patna then Takhat Sri Harmandir Sahib Gurudwara should be on the top of your list. It is probably one of the most beautiful gurudwara, and being home of the last Sikh guru, Guru Gobind Singh its spiritual value is also high. There are three more gurudwara near this, you can also visit them if you want. The gurudwara prasad/langar is pretty awesome. Day time is good for visiting and admiring its architecture but evening time is best and you can also see the aarti.

One of the beautiful gurudwara in India

It is one of the beautiful gurudwara in India. It is situated in Patna city, Chowk. It is built by white marbles looking very beautiful. In Takht Sri Patna Sahib lots of memorable things are available in a museum. These things are letters written by Guru Nanak Dev ji, Vuns, bed of Guru Nanak ji, etc. In gurudwara, halva is distributed in people as prasad. Everyday they arrange a big langar in gurudwara.

The Birthplace of Guru Govind Singh ji

This is the birthplace of the tenth guru of sikhism-Shri Govind Singh ji but it is situated in a very very crowded place. The taxis and buses can not reach there due to narrow roads. Hence one has to hire or share the three wheelers playing in that area. Now a days, lot of construction work is going, there is FREE food available for the travellers in the gurdwara.. People enjoy the prasad of Halwa in the gurdwara.
