The cultural and spiritual roots of Sikhism are spread in several parts of India, and this blog speaks about the most adored Panj Takht Sahib Tour:
Experience the ultimate peace and divinity with the Panj Takht Sahib Tour
‘Panj Takht’ are the five most significant Gurudwara’s which have a very deep respect among the Sikh community. In Sikhism, Guru is known as the ‘true king’ (Sachcha Patshah) and his spiritual throne (gaddi) as ‘Takht’ and his court as ‘darbar’. These Panj Takht takes all the social, political and religious decisions in the Sikh community. Visit to all the five Gurudwaras is a matter of extreme sacredness and happiness, so here we begin with our tour-
Reach Nanded, a city in Maharashtra, to visit ‘Takht of Shri Hazoor Sahib’ also called ‘Takht Sachkhand’. It is the place from where the tenth Guru, Guru Gobind Singh left for his heavenly abode with his horse ‘Dilbag’. The room inside is called the ‘Angitha Sahib’ which was built over the place of cremation of Guru Gobind Singh.
You can spend your day listening to the kirtan and witness the Aarti in the evening. There are also Gurudwaras located close by like Gurudwara Shikar Ghat, Shri Banda Ghat Shri Nagina Ghat Sahib and Sri Heera Ghat. You can drive 96 kms from Shri Hazoor Sahib to reach Gurudwara of Nanak Jhirait in Bidar.
Takht Sri Patna Sahib: Also known as ‘Sri Harmandir Sahib, Patna’ is the birth place of Guru Gobind Singh Ji which is located in Patna, Bihar. This is the place where Guru Ji spent his early age before he moved to Anandpur Sahib. This place is also visited by Sri Guru Tegh Bahadur and Sri Guru Nanak Ji. There is a small museum inside the Gurudwara premises that has preserved the historical relics of Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji. Next, you can listen to the hymns and chants in the nearby Gurudwaras at Maini Sangat, Ghai Ghat, Guru Ka Bagh and Sunar Toli.
Seek blessings at Gurudwara of Shri Bangla Sahib and Gurudwara of Sis Ganj Sahib in Delhi. When it is Delhi, how can you miss to shop at Chandani Chowk, the most sprightful bazaar in Delhi? Go and shop as much as you want before proceeding to the third Takht in Sri Anandpur Sahib!
Driving through the most happening cities of Punjab, reach the next Takht – Gurudwara of Sri Keshgarh situated in Sri Anandpur Sahib. It is the birthplace of the Khalsa, and the foundation stone of Sri Keshgarh Sahib was laid on 30th March 1689.
The next place to visit is the fifth Takht- Gurudwara of Damadama Sahib at Talwandi Sabo near Bhatinda. Takht Sri Damdama Sahib was recognized as the fifth Takht on 18th November 1966 and has linked to Guru Sri Guru Gobind Singh, who had prepared the authentic revised version of the ‘Adi Granth’ – Guru Granth Sahib. Drive to Amritsar en-en-routing Guru -Ki- Kashi Talwandi Sabo in Ludhiana.
Last but not the least is the time to visit the most important Takht – Akal Takht at the Golden Temple, Amritsar. Here you can attend the closing ceremony of the Guru Granth Sahib.
This is not just the end! Though you have seen all the five Takhts by now, a trip to Amritsar is incomplete without taking a dip in the holy waters of the Tarn Taran. You can put an end to your tour by visiting the famous Jallianwala Bagh and the Indo-Pak Wagah border.
While the tour offers a chance to visit these holy places, you are back to your normal routine with a lot more energy and positivity. So pack your bags and book your tour now!
