Gurdwara Sis Ganj Sahib

Dedicated to Guru Teg Bahadur
Location Chandni Chowk, New Delhi
Constructed By Baba Baghel Singh

Gurdwara Sis Ganj SahibGurdwara Sis Ganj Sahib was built to commemorate the martyrdom of Guru Teg Bahadur. It is situated in Chandni Chowk, on the same site where Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb ordered the beheading of Sikh Guru Tegh Bahadur in the year 1675. It is said that when Guru Tegh Bahadur died, no one had the courage to pick up his body. Suddenly, it started raining heavily. Then, two of the brave followers of Guruji took his head and body and fled. The head was taken to Chakk Nanaki in Anandpur Sahib, while the body was taken to the place where Gurdwara Rakab Ganj Sahib now stands.

After almost a century, Baba Baghel Singh, a devotee of Guru Teg Bahadur, discovered the site where Guruji was beheaded. He was the one who built the Sisganj Gurdwara, in New Delhi, there. Even today, the trunk of the banyan tree under which the Guru was martyred can be seen at the Gurudwara. The well where Guruji took his daily bath, while being imprisoned, also stands at the Delhi Sis Ganj Gurdwara. Then, there is the enclosed structure where Guruji was held captive as a prisoner before his beheading. Guru Gobind Singh Sahib also visited this holy place in the year 1702.
