HARMANDIR

The most formative part of Guru Govind Singh's life was spent at Anandpur, a place within a short distance of the modern Bhakra dam. Guru Govind Singh, as is well known, founded the Khalsa sect and he also introduced the surname of ‘Singh’.

Over the sacred spot of the birth-place of Guru Govind Singh a temple was built. The present temple is a vast improvement on its predecessor built by Maharaja Ranjit Singh, "the lion of the Punjab", sometime in the first quarter of the 19th century. This temple is considered to be one of the four sacred places of the Sikhs and a large number of Sikhs from all over India and abroad visit the temple.

The number of non-Sikh visitors to Harmandir is also very large. It is almost a bounden duty of a Sikh coming to Patna for any reason to visit this temple on the very first day. The present five-storey temple was built during 1954-62 at a cost of fifteen lakhs -of rupees.
