TAKHT SRI HAZUR SAHIB FACTS & FIGURES

Location: On the banks of the River Godavari at the city of Nanded in the state of Maharashtra, Western India.
Best time to Visit: Throughout the year
Significance: Place where Guru Gobind Singh Ji left this world.

Its structure is built at the location where Guru Gobind Singh Ji left this world. It is one of the five 'takhts' (Seats of Temporal authority) in Sikhism. The inner room of the temple is called the Angitha Sahib and is built over the place where Guru Gobind Singh was cremated in 1708. Sikh historical records show that Guru Gobind Singh ordered his Sikhs not to create a monument to commemorate his leaving this world, anyone who defied this order would suffer the death of his/her offspring. Interestingly, Maharaja Ranjit Singh ordered its construction and most of Maharaja Ranjit Singh's offspring died, either through bad luck or unusual circumstances. The temple was finished in 1839, later that year Maharaja Ranjit Singh died.

The gurdwara is an old flat-roofed room with a low dome. Some old weapons are displayed on a platform centre of the room. They include a shield believed to be the one with which the treasure was distributed The Guru Granth Sahib is installed in the narrow space between the centre platform and the wall.
