Kiratpur Sahib



Built on the banks of the river Sutlej, Gurdwara Patalpuri Sahib is situated at Kiratpur Sahib in district Rupnagar aka Ropar in the state of Punjab in India.

Kiratpur Sahib was founded by the sixth Guru Sri Hargobind Sahib. It was here that Guru Gobind Singh, the 10th Guru of the Sikhs along with his followers received the sacred head of the ninth Guru Sri Tegh Bahadur, brought from Delhi with great devotion and respect in 1675.

Guru Sri Tegh Bahadur was executed by the Mughal Emperor Aurangazeb.

It is the place where many Sikhs take the ashes of their dead to be immersed in the river. img_1439_edited
