Complete tourist information guide on Gurudwara Takht Sri Patna Sahib, one of the five Takhts or Holy Seats of Authority of the Sikhs.

The Gurudwara Takht Sri Patna Sahib is the holy birth place of Guru Gobind Singh Ji, the Tenth Guru of Sikhism, and was constructed by Maharaja Ranjit Singh (1780-1839). Guru Gobind Singh spent his childhood here before moving to Anandpur Sahib.

History of Gurudwara Takht Sri Patna Sahib

The Gurudwara Takht Sri Patna Sahib was the birth place of Guru Gobind Singh where he was born in 1666 CE, and he also spent his early days here. The place was also visited by Guru Nanak Dev Ji as well as Guru Tegh Bahadur Ji. Patna Sahib gurudwara takhat patna sahib is one of the Panj Takht or the five Holy Seats of Authority of Sikhism, the others being Akal Takht in the Golden Temple complex in Amritsar, Takht Sachkhand Shri Hazoor Sahib in Maharashtra, Takht Sri Kesgarh Sahib in Anandpur Sahib, and Takht Sri Damdama Sahib.

Guru Nanak, on his way to Gaya, visited Patna. As a scholar of history he was well aware of the bygone glory of the ancient Pataliputra, and did his best to revive that glory. Here stood the haveli of Salis Rai Jouri, a devotee of Nanak, who being inspired by his Guru changed his palatial house to a dharamshala. Guru Tegh Bahadur also resided there when he visited Patna. So Patna was already known to the Sikhs and later they constructed an edifice over the birth place of Guru Gobind Singh. They called it Sangat. Maharaja Ranjit Singh Ji constructed a monumental building there, but he did not survive to see it completed. In the 1934 Bihar earthquake, the contemporary Gurudwara was heavily damaged, and the repaired building was constructed twenty years later in 1954, which we see nowadays.
