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.
