Gurudwara Mata Kaulan, Amritsar Overview

The sacred shrine of Mata Kaulan, also known as the Gurudwara Mata Kaulan, is located on the west side of the Golden Temple in Amritsar. This Gurudwara has been named after a legendary devotee of Guru Har Gobind, Bibi Kaulan.

Story of Bibi Kaulan

Gurudwara Mata Kaulan was named after Bibi Kaulan, a holy lady who was raised as a Muslim but then adopted Hinduism later in her life, becoming a faithful disciple of Guru Har Gobind. Bibi Kaulan’s father disowned her and pronounced her dead for her devotion towards Guru Hargobind Ji. After she was abandoned, Sant Mian Mir, a resident of the same village, secretly brought her to Amritsar, where she spent the rest of her life devoted to Guru Har Gobind while performing religious duties. She was later laid to rest in the western area of Gurudwara Kaulan. Bibi Kaulan’s service and devotion to the Gurudwara is often praised in the temple complex.
