"Golden Temple - Thara Sahib" Amritsar Things to Do Tip by Willettsworld

Amritsar Things to Do: 114 reviews and 269 photos

 
 

Guru Ramdas Sahib, the fourth Guru, used to sit here while supervising the digging of the holy tank. He also gave holy sermons and held congregations by singing holy hymns. The pothis (holy books) containing holy hymns were also kept here after they were brought from the village of Goindwal Sahib in order to edit the Guru Granth Sahib - the Sikh's holy book.
