Gurudwara Sis Ganj Sahib, Delhi Overview

Situated in the Chandi Chowk area of Old Delhi, Gurudwara Sis Ganj Sahib is one among the nine historical gurudwaras in Delhi. Built in 1783 by Baghel Singh (military general in the Punjab cantonment), the gurdwara is the martyrdom site of the ninth Sikh Guru-Guru Tegh Bahadur.

The Sikh Guru was executed here on the orders of the Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb on the 11th of November 1675 as he refused to convert his religion to Islam. Before the body could be revived and displayed for view for the devotees, it was stolen by one of the Guru’s disciples Lakhi Shah Vanjara. Vanjara carried the body to his home and burnt down his house to cremate his Guru. Today, Gurudwara Rakab Ganj Sahib stands at that spot. The head of Guru Tegh Bahadur was taken to Anandpur Sahib and cremated there by his son. Like all other gurdwaras, this one is also open to people of all religions and faith to visit.
