Sis Ganj Gurudwara



Sis Ganj Gurudwara was built in the memory of the Sikh Guru Tegh Bahadur. The Gurudwara has been constructed on the location where the Mughals mercilessly beheaded the Sikh Guru Tegh Bahadur in 1675.

Sis Ganj Gurdwara was made to remind the people of the killing of this famous religious leader who was one of the great preachers. As the legend goes, it is said that when Guru Tegh Bahadur was no more, no one was there who dared to take away his body. However, all of a sudden, the sky was black and there was a heavy rainfall. Two of the followers of Guruji took the advantage of the situation and went away with his head and body. The head of the Guru was brought to Chakk Nanaki in Anandpur Sahib whereas the body was carried to Gurdwara Rakab Ganj.

In Sis Ganj Gurdwara you can witness the trunk of the big tree below which the Guru was martyred. The people who go to the Sis Ganj Gurdwara also visit the well in which the Guru used to take his daily bath when he was in prison.

In 1705, Guru Gobind Singh Sahib went to Sis Ganj Gurdwara. He looked at the minute details of the then condition of this shrine and decided to appoint Bhai Gurbakhsh Das Udasi as the caretaker of the Sis Ganj Gurdwara .

People very often claim that the pedestal in the middle of the Sis Ganj Gurdwara is nothing but the the ancient most structure of Chakk Nanaki, the place which got Guruji's head and is located at Anandpur Sahib.
