  • HISTORY The gurdwara marks the site, where Lakhi Shah Banjara and his son Bhai Naghaiya burnt their own house to cremate the body of the Sikh guru Guru Tegh Bahadur who, on 11 November 1675, was beheaded in Chandni Chowk on the orders of the Mughal emperor Aurangzeb for refusing to convert to Islam. The spot where the Guru was beheaded is marked by Gurdwara Sis Ganj Sahib. The Guru's severed head was brought from Delhi to Anandpur Sahib in Punjab, by Bhai Jaita (later Bhai Jiwan Singh) and was cremated by his son, Gobind Rai, who later became Guru Gobind Singh, the tenth Guru of the Sikhs. The Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee is planning to build a memorial to the Sikhs killed during the 1984 Anti-Sikh genocide at the site. Though the foundation stone for the memorial has been laid, the Delhi High Court is considering a petition challenging the construction of the memorial.
  • Peaceful. Like its so quiet and has a huge crowd at the same time.
  • A peaceful holy place located near parliament of India in heart of Delhi .. This place marks the site of cremation of the ninth Sikh guru, Guru Tegh Bahadur's after his execution in November 1675 under orders of Aurangzeb. Two brave Sikhs Bhai Lakhi Shah Banjara and his son Bhai Naghaiya rescued the headless body of the revered ninth Sikh Guru from Chandni Chowk.
