  • some places in India are beyond these Google Maps ratings. And this temple is one among them. British people, made fun of Sardars by cracking Sardarji jokes. And we idiots, Indians, still make fun of the Sikhs. The true patriots of this great nation are these Sikhs. Hats off to them. The temple is well constructed and managed. The hospitality can be seen in any of their temples, in their dining hall. The place is always crowded, hence not ideal for meditation. But you will enjoy every second that you spend here.

  • After the martyrdom of Guru Arjan Dev, the fifth Sikh Guru his predecessor and son Guru Hargobind, the sixth Sikh Guru decided to establish a seat of power where the decisions of the Guru could be announced and the disputes of the followers could be resolved. He motivated his followers to gift weapons to face the injustice of the rulers of the land at that time. He trained his followers about use of weapons. He also infused spirit among his followers to face the tyranny of the rulers. He was the first saint warrior Sikh Guru.

  • Highest takhat of Sikhism there all political decisions are made for the whole khalsa panth which every sikh should obey. This place is just opposite to the golden temple and darshni deodi. Visit this place also when u visit golden temple. Guru granth sahib ji maharaj's sukhasan room is here In side it. Guru granth sahib ji is taken back to Hari mandir sahib in morning in palki at the time of prakash

  • SATNAM SHRI WAHEGURU!!!! Shri Akal Takhat Sahib was founded by Sixth Guru of Sikhs Shri Guru Hargobind Sahib Ji, after the martyrdom of Shri Guru Arjan Dev Ji at the hands of mughal emperor jahangir. Every Sikh obeys the Hukumnama issued from here. Even Maharaja Ranjit Singh stood here as a common Sikh and accepted religious punishment given to him.
