Gurudwara Paonta Sahib

Gurudwara Paonta Sahib, is a noted Gurudwara in Paonta Sahib, District of Sirmour, Himachal Pradesh.

Guru Gobind Singh ji, the tenth guru of sikhs was the person in whose memory the Gurdwara of Paonta Sahib was built. It was here, the Dasam Granth was written by Guru Gobind Singh Ji. It is because of this fact, the Gurdwara enjoys a very high historic and religious importance among the followers of the Sikh religion across the worldover. An example of the religious importance of the Gurudwara being the "Palki" made of pure gold, donated by one of the devotees.

Shri Talab Asthan and Shri Dastar Asthan are the vital places inside the Sikh shrine worth mentioning. While salaries are disbursed at Shri Talab Asthan, Shri Dastar Asthan is used for organizing the turban tying competitions. A legendary temple is also attached to the Gurudwara. The temple is devoted to Goddess Yamuna. Kavi Darbar, a prominent place near the Gurudwara is the venue for holding the poetry competitions. The weapons and pens used by Guru Gobind Singh Ji are displayed in a museum near the Poanta Sahib Gurudwara.

Inside the building you can have Darshan (sight) of Shri Guru Granth Sahib Ji presided on the "Palki" made of pure Gold, donated by one of the devotees.
