Location on Map Gurdwara Guru Ka Bagh - Weather

About three kilometers east of Takht Sri Harmandir Sahib is a bagh (garden) where Guru Tegh Bahadur first alighted belonging to Nawabs Rahim Bakhsh and Karim Bakhsh, nobles of Patna, and where the sangat of Patna along with the young Guru Gobind Singh came out to receive him back from his four-year-long odyssey. A shrine commemorative of the first meeting of Holy Father and Son was established here. Its present building was constructed during the 1970s and 1980s. An old well still in use and a dried stump of the imli tree under which the sangat met Guru Tegh Bahadur still exist.

Getting the news of Gobind Rai’s birth, Guru Tegh Bahadur Ji returned from Assam to Patna and stayed in an old and dried Bagh(garden) which turned green and fruitful with His prescence. This miracle is also mentioned in Dukh Bhanjani Sahib. Seeing that miracle people went to the owner of the Bagh. The Nawab delighted to get that news. The Nawab paid obeisance to Guru ji and gifted whole Bagh to Him. That it why it is called Guru Ka Bagh.

A Sadhu Mahatma was also lived there. Seeing the miracle he said that it is a magic and Guru Ji is a magician. Hearing this Guru Ji went to him and said Mahatma Ji you have been worshiping since a long time but you are still not free from Maya. To bring him on the right path, Guru Ji ordered a Sikh to bring somethings from the nearby well.Obeying the order he took out one lota (gadvi) and one beragan from the well. Guru Ji kept both the things before the Mahatma and said these things floated away when you were bathing in the river. Now I am returning these belongings to you. Mahatma recognized both the things. And fell in Guru Ji's feet. Conveying him the message of one God, Guru Ji freed him from this world. Then Guru Ji gave blessings to that well, that any childless woman who bathes here on every seventh, will definitely have a child. 

Following items are preserved in this Gurudwara: 

  •  Thada Sahib ( on which Guru Ji seated). 
  •  A tree of Krondhe which gives fruits through out the year. It grew through the Datun of Guru Ji. 
  •  An old well, still in use, and a dried stump of the Imli tree (tamarind tree), under which the sangat met Guru Ji.
