Gurudwara Sis Ganj Sahib

Entry Fee: - There is no entry fee for this Gurudwara

To save Hindus from ruler Jahangir, Guru Tegh Bahadur did not bother to sacrifice his life for the good of many people. Because of that great sacrifice, the Hindu Religion still exists in the world.

This Gurudwara is that place where the ninth Sikh Guru, Shri Tegh Bahadur was beheaded in 1675. Three of his disciples were also killed with Tegh Bahadur. His head was taken by his followers to Anandpur Sahib and then his headless body was taken to his house for cremation which is known as the famous Gurudwara Rakab Ganj, Delhi.

Almost 15000 devotees pay a visit to this historic shrine on daily basis and one can see long queues at Gurudwara everyday that make it a point to eat the holy Langar served in the Gurudwara.

For Sikhs all over the country, Gurudwara Sis Ganj Sahib holds a very special place in their hearts. The tree and the well where the guru was buried and was used to take bath while he was in prison respectively are still preserved inside the Gurudwara.


This Gurudwara was first established in 1783 in Chandni Chowk and was named as the Sis Ganj Gurudwara. It was done in honour of Guru Tegh Bahadur. The present building was made in the year 1930 which has a very big hall and right in the centre, a huge canopy is made where the holy book is placed known as the Guru Granth Sahib. There are 250 rooms in the complex and 200 lockers for pilgrims who wish to stay in the Gurudwara itself. There are modern facilities to cater to the visitors of the Gurudwara.

It is the same place where Guru Tegh Bahadur, the ninth Sikh Guru was beheaded and his head was then taken by his secret followers to Anandpur Sahib to his son where he cremated the guru’s head. Gobind Rai aka Guru Gobind Singh was his son and then he became the tenth Sikh Guru.

His head was beheaded when he refused to change his religion to Islam and then the ambitious Aurangzeb cut his head in anger but only because of this brave sacrifice, the Sikh religion now stands and exists in the Hindu culture. One of his disciples also burnt his house just to cremate his master’s body.
