HARMANDIR

The temple faces the west and its height is 108 feet. At its entrance there is a verandah 90 feet by 46 feet. There is another verandah for the priests, 25 feet by 13 feet and, after that, there is a marble hall about 25 feet by 12 feet. Here is kept an all-gold palki (palanquin), on which there is a picture of Guru Govind Singh, who was born in this room.

The palanquin is a work of  exquisite craftsmanship. A little unplastered spot, about 3 feet by 2 feet, is preserved as a memorial of the exact spot where Guru Govind Singh was born. The height of the all-gold palki is about 5 feet. There is a well on the right side of the palki, which is known as Matajika Kuan It is said that once the wells of the locality were all salt except for the water of the well of Mataji.

The ladies of the locality used to take water from the well, which is in the temple. When Govind Rai was a child of four or five, he used to break the earthen pitchers of the ladies. The ladies complained to his mother that her son (Govind Rai) was in the habit of breaking their water pots. His mother gave some money to each of them to purchase a bronze pot.
