Paonta Sahib is a vibrant, industrial town located in the Sirmaur district of Himachal Pradesh. Apart from hosting significant industries, it is also a prominent place of worship for the Sikh community. The noted Gurudwara Paonta Sahib, built in the memory of Shri Guru Gobind Singh, is situated on the banks of the River Yamuna in this town and attracts many pilgrims round the year.
In his memoirs, Guru Gobind Singh Ji has described his time in the city as the happiest years of his life where he witnessed amusement of various kinds. The place where the Gurdwara now stands is where Guru Ji stayed with his family. The gurdwara also has a museum with Guru Ji’s war antiques and other weapons. The Palki on which the religious Sikh text, Guru Granth Sahib Ji is kept, is made of pure gold.
