HARMANDIR

Introduction

Patna is a great place of pilgrimage for the Sikhs. It is the birth-place of Guru Govind Singh, the tenth Guru. Patna has a number of Sikh shrines, besides the famous Harmandir commemorating the birth-place of Guru Govind Singh. It is in a lane named Harmandirki Gali, opposite the Patna City Post Office and within the jurisdiction of the Chank thana. The area was known as the Haveli of Salus Rai Johari in the 17th Century. It is said that Sri Nanak Deva, the first Guru of the Sikhs, had come to Patna and stayed at this place for several months.

The Harmandir temple is -about 9 miles east from the Patna Junction Railway Station and Steamer Ghat, 2 miles north from the Patna City Station and about 12 miles east from the Patna Aerodrome. The place is well-linked by regular bus services run by the State Transport Corporation. The Transport Corporation on theoccasion of Guru Govind Singh’s birth anniversary runs special bus services. Rickshaws, taxis, ekkas and carriages are available at Patna City, Steamer Ghat, Aerodrome and Patna Junction.
