THE ARDHNARI TEMPLE - MANDI

The Kulu Raja, with whom Guru Gobind Singh had been staying just before his migration to Mandi, seemed to be devoid of the spirit of chivalry and of love for his motherland. Instead of helping the Guru Sahib, he imprisoned him and shut him up in an iron cage. He forgot, however, that to a great man "Stone walls, do not make a prison, nor iron bars a cage and the Guru was soon able to escape and make his way to Mandi.

Here Raja Sidh Sen had a premonition of the coming of the Guru, and, on the latter's arrival, offered him a warm welcome and treated him with the greatest respect. The place where the, Guru stayed at Mandi was until recently a small tumble-down hut, but thanks to the sympathetic, interest of the present enlightened Ruler, and as the result of the efforts of Rai Bahadur Diwan Dina Nath, the present Chief Minister to His Highness, a fine Gurdwara has been built at the sacred spot and the memory of the Guru's visit is thus kept green.
