Bibeksar Sahib, Amritsar Overview

Gurudwara Bibeksar Sahib is situated near Chattiwind Gate in the holy city of Amritsar. Lying about 1.5 Km from the Golden Temple and directly opposite Gurudwara Ramsar Sahib, it was the congregation site of followers of the 6th Sikh Guru, Hargobind Singh Ji and son of Sri Guru Arjan Dev Ji. Named after the Bibeksar Sarovar (lake), it is believed that Guru Hargobind Sahib Ji used to go hunting and when tired, used to come to this bare piece of land, tie his horse to the Kareer Tree and lay down there. He liked the place so much that he decided to build a Sarovar there. He laid the foundation for the holy tank in the year 1628.

The Gurudwara became a site for propagating the ideas and teachings of Sri Guru Hargobind Sahib Ji. It became a venue for many essential meets as well. There is a verdure garden in the gurudwara premise where Hargobind Sahib Ji used to pass his leisurely evenings preaching the public. The Kareer tree still continues to exist serving as one more memorial of the great guru. The last Saturday of every month is very special. Langar and kirtans are organized as the gurudwara enliven with hymn chanting and gorgeous lighting.
